Autumn brings with it an abundance of delicious fruits and veggies.

Autumn is a season of abundance; apples and pears are perfect for picking along with rhubarb, plus root veggies like pumpkin and parsnips are ripe and sweet—add in leafy greens like kale and spinach and the options for enjoying local food is endless this season.

“In Tasmania, we’re lucky to have a wide variety of delicious food available throughout the year. Eating seasonally is a tasty, affordable and nutritious way to enjoy Tasmanian produce at home, every day.”

When you buy seasonal Tasmanian food you are supporting Tasmanian growers, producers, and value-adders. Buying produce from farmers markets is an easy way to ensure your food is locally grown. When shopping in supermarkets, most fresh fruit and veggies will have a sticker or a sign telling you where it is produced—look for the “Grown in Tasmania” label or ask a shop assistant.
