Fruits and vegetables in season by month: July

Tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, peaches and watermelons: these are only some of the delicious fruits and vegetables for July groceries shopping.

July is the month of tomatoes, which are at the peak of their flavour and freshness. Use them to make gazpacho, a fresh, flavourful, and delicious Andalusian soup made with raw tomatoes and other vegetables. With hot temperatures, there is nothing better than a fresh tzatziki, the delicious Greek starter made of yogurt and cucumber that is perfect to reintegrate the mineral salts you lose by sweating.
