Summer is upon us and we all know this is the season for picnics, barbecues, grilling, and fresh fruits and veggies. Here are five top trends you can expect to see everywhere this summer.

Grilled Vegetables

Plant-based meals are extremely popular this year, so it’s not surprising that grilled veggies are going to be popular this summer. Grilled eggplant, zucchini, artichokes, kale, and beets are just some of many tasty ideas for grilling.


People are going beyond the classic cucumber when it comes to pickling this year. Watermelon rind, beets, mushrooms, bell peppers, grapes, tomatoes, and squash are just some fruits and veggies that are perfect for pickling.

Non-Dairy Ice Cream

People are looking to swap dairy milk for healthier alternatives like coconut or oat milk and that’s why non-dairy ice creams will be everywhere this summer.

Upcycled Food

Sustainability is becoming a huge trend all over the world and that’s why reducing food waste by upcycling food is going to be popular this summer.

Charcuterie Boards

Charcuterie boards have been all over social media for more than a year now and they’re definitely here to stay because it’s the perfect food trend for summer.
