Best In Season
‘Best In Season’ is part of Bord Bia’s promotional campaign to explain to you quite simply what fruit and vegetables are available in Ireland and what’s ‘Best In Season’. Most of our common fruit and vegetables are sown in the Irish springtime, grow in the Irish summer and are harvested in the autumn. By following our calendar of availability you’ll know when you’ll be able to find fresh, local produce.
World Pi (Pie) Day – 14th March
With free apples at selected Farmers’ Markets from the 8th to the 13th of March (depending on the venue), Bord Bia and the Irish Apple Growers Association are looking for Ireland’s best apple pie in celebration of World Pi (pie) Day!
It wouldn’t be a normal week without broccoli making an appearance on the menu in many households, either steamed or stir-fried.
