Yep, it’s October already…

You may be keen to reduce the food miles of your food by eating more local produce. And the supermarkets aren’t all that helpful at pointing it all out to you…

So here’s a quick reminder of what’s in season in England in October:

Figs

Apples

Pumpkins

Squashes

Cavolo Nero

Kale

Blackberries

Sprouts

Broccoli

Beetroot

Mushrooms

Cabbage - savoy, spring green and red

Carrots

Pears

Quince

Elderberries

Damsons

Crab Apples

Artichoke

Plums

Cauliflower

Celeriac

Fennel

Garlic

Parsnips

Spinach

Leeks

And on the occasions when my children come to the supermarket, I usually let them choose something interesting from the fruit and veg section, and as they get older, I’ll be encouraging them to select something seasonal too!
