Eat With The Seasons

Building our diets around seasonal, organic produce is a great way to start making food choices that have a lower impact on the planet

What's In Season This Autumn?


October is synonymous with apples, perfect for pies and crumbles! Pears, figs and plums are in season still, whilst the last of the summer fruits, like peaches, nectarinesblueberries and raspberries may also be available to buy up until the end of October.

Autumn is a great time to get more homegrown nuts in your diet too, such as chestnuts, cobnuts, hazelnuts and walnuts.


Autumn is an amazing time for veg if you live in the UK - British soils are busy bearing some amazing seasonal spoils.

The very last of the courgette glut continues into early October, though Autumn is the time for more spooky squashes, like pumpkins and the delicious butternut squash.

Broccoli is at it's very best right now, whilst cauliflower enjoys its second season of the year. Some winter favourites coming into season, like celeriac, kale, leeksbeetroot and globe artichokes make this the season for warming, nutritious soups and Sunday roasts.

Hero Veg

This season's, we want to shine a light on a forgotten food hero - the humble quince! 

This firm, yellow-skinned fruit has become something of a lost soul in recent years, due to a lack of recipes and sour taste when raw.

Yet Gill Meller, renowned chef and member of the River Cottage team, reassures us that quince remains one of the ultimate foods for the autumnal season.
