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. 


We popped a few interesting recipes using the ingredients listed at the bottom too. Tag us in your recipes and share them on our Facebook and we will share the best ones on the community page
