In a bid to encourage local purchasing, which ultimately helps everything from our city's economy to planet earth, we have put together a list of fruits and vegetables in season that you will be able to find in your neighbourhood wet market. Cooking at home is not hugely popular in a lot of Hong Kong households, but is another activity that is benefitted when we buy local, in-season produce.
Purple and green string beans
For figs and pineapple try this coconut yoghurt breakfast recipe.
If you are trying to lose weight, juice bitter gourd and cucumber. This concoction also reduces blood sugar levels.
