October is a wonderful month for produce! It’s one of the harvest season months and there are so many delicious fruits and vegetables at their peak this month.
One important thing to note is that seasonality of produce is different between states, countries, and regions. This is primarily a seasonal guide for North America, although there will be overlap with other countries and places in the Northern hemisphere.
There are great regional resources for what’s in season, some of which I’ve listed below. With that in mind, here’s what’s in season in October!
