Welcome Fall with a Fresh Set of Seasonal Produce

As Summer winds down, so do temperatures and seasonal changes mean a transition period for the produce you should purchase. And although the leaves may not have fallen just yet, you can start to plan your Fall meals based on what is most in season! This upcoming season brings a bevy of new fruit and vegetables that are best for cozy nights and back to school life. 

Below we breakdown which fruits and veggies are making their grand reappearance so you can be prepared for all things fall. And spoiler! We’re not just talking pumpkins and squash. 


  • Apples
  • Cranberries 
  • Guava
  • Figs
  • Limes
  • Passion Fruit 
  • Pomegranates 
  • Grapes 
  • Pears 
  • Persimmons


  • Sweet Potatoes 
  • Beets

Shopping for produce in season not only ensures you get the freshest produce available but it is also helpful for the environment, promotes sustainability and is usually cheaper. Enjoying produce out of season requires longer transportation, using more fuel and creating more emissions. This also affects pricing and means that the produce you are intaking are less fresh and may hold more pesticides and chemicals to help sustain its journey. Not to mention, buying local is cool! 

So as we exit summer and enter fall, you can use this list to best support your fall menus and Mother Earth. For more ways to take your fall meals on the go and further support sustainability, grab a new bento in a new, fall color to help support your journey. 

Happy Fall!
