In-Season Fall Foods You Should Be Eating Right Now

While you’re busy enjoying the crisp fall air, you might be forgetting to take advantage of the season’s bounty of delicious fruits and vegetables. When it comes to fall cooking, there are countless ways to enjoy seasonal flavors and ingredients, but some recipes and ingredients just scream fall more than others. 

To help you plan your seasonal meals, here’s a handy guide to the best in-season fall foods.

The Benefits Of Eating Seasonally

Eating seasonally is great for your health, the environment and your wallet. Why not try something new this fall? Head to your trusted local market for some in-season produce to cook your favorite autumnal dishes with. 

Root Vegetables

Autumn is a great time for root vegetables. Carrots, celeriac, and parsnips are all in season and make a great addition to your fall dinner. Other popular seasonal picks include: 

  • Onions
  • Squash
  • Pumpkin
  • Turnips
  • Yams and sweet potatoes 


Eating greens is always a good idea, but what types of greens should you be eating in the fall? Here are a few of our favorite seasonal greens:

  • Arugula
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Celery 
  • Artichokes


Apples are one of the most popular fall fruits, and for good reason: they’re sweet, juicy and crisp when you bite into them. The best apples are locally grown and in season. If you don’t have a local apple orchard nearby, you may be able to find some at your local grocery store or market year-round. 

Other delicious fall fruits to snack on throughout the autumnal months include:

  • Cranberries
  • Pomegranates
  • Citrus
  • Pears


Eating fresh herbs is a great way to add new flavors and health benefits to your favorite dishes. Plus, it’s easier than you think! Here are some of our favorite herbs for fall:

  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Turmeric
  • Thyme
  • Basil
  • Rosemary 
  • Dill


Seasonal fish is a perfect way to incorporate essential nutrients and protein into your diet this fall. Hearty dishes like a savory fish stew or a creamy chowder are the epitome of comfort food. 

The most important thing about choosing seasonal fish? The freshness! Make sure you know where your grocer is sourcing its seafood from to ensure you buy top-quality fish this autumn. Some commonly found fish during the fall season include sea bass, cod, sole and haddock.
