Shops, farms and producers are celebrating the return of Organic September from Sustain member the Soil Association.
Organic September has been perfectly timed to see some of Britain’s most popular everyday fruits and vegetables coming into season. Throughout the month, shops across the country will be showcasing how easy it is to shop and cook with organic ingredients along with the wealth of choice available.
