What’s in season? Happy days as honey brightens up the month of May

Honey from Canberra Urban Honey at the Capital Region Farmer's Market


While we’ve got our sights set on winter’s delicious and wholesome foods, we’re thinking about other goodness that keeps us going as the months get colder. Honey is a sweet tooth’s dream, but did you know that it’s good for lots of other reasons too – it’s known to be a wonder food, with lots of health benefits.

Honey features many antibacterial healing properties for wounds and burns by acting as a disinfectant when applied externally. Its antibacterial powers also make it perfect for mixing into a hot lemon drink for when you’re feeling under the weather (it also makes the lemon a little more bearable!). 

Honey is also good for much needed energy boosts – you can’t go wrong with a little bit of extra natural sugar! And did you know it can also make your memory better? That’s right – studies have shown that eating a spoonful of honey each day can help boost short-term memory.

With World Bee Day just around the corner, now is one of the best times of the year to support the local bee community. Canberra Urban Honey, Win’s Creek Meadery and Melissa’s Pure Fresh Honey are some of the Market stalls where you can get your hands on the sweet golden liquid.

Happy days are ahead as honey brightens up our month!
