Searcher in autumnDuring the different seasons in the UK, different vegetables and fruits grow. Find out what’s in season and good to eat this autumn!

Autumn happens in the months between September and November, just after summer. It’s getting cooler, leaves start turning orange, and spooky Halloween is here!

It is better to buy vegetables and fruit that are grown locally when they’re in season.

It’s better for the environment!

Less energy is used, and less pollution is created when vegetables and fruit are grown and picked locally during their normal season. Vegetables and fruit grown outside their normal season need artificial light and heat to grow or are flown into your local supermarkets from abroad.

It’s cheaper!

Buying local, seasonal vegetables and fruit is usually cheaper than off-season vegetables and fruit because the cost to grow and transport them is lower.
