There are countless benefits to shopping seasonally–so many, in fact, that we’ve covered them all here.

It’s just not healthier and more environmentally friendly–it also starts to taste way better, once you start finding farmer’s markets and picking produce you know is ripe and ready. If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to seasonal shopping, let our helpful guide steer you in the right direction.

Apple Cider Tart recipe by Casa de Suna; Recipes using Fall Flavors

Apples

This one likely won’t surprise you. Apples are the quintessential fall fruit, a universal symbol for the “back-to-school” season. And while an apple may be the ideal healthy snack, if you want something a bit more exciting, our apple fritter doughnuts and apple cider tart are the sweetest possible way to enjoy an in-season treat (and the perfect dessert for those among us celebrating Rosh Hashanah).

Winter Squash and Pear Salad by Casa de Suna; CDS | Recipes using Fall Flavors

Pears

A fleeting, festive treat, pears are in season from August to October–and one of our favorite ways to enjoy them is in a salad that takes advantage of other seasonal fall flavors, like our winter squash (yes, it’s in season in fall, too) and pear salad.

Fig and Cocoa Nib Granola Recipe by Casa de Suna

Figs

Figs are in season during two times of the year–first around June and then again from August through October. One of our favorite ways to enjoy fall’s figs is for breakfast, via our cocoa nib and fig granola that’s guaranteed to set the rest of your day up for success.

Hazelnut and Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies by Casa de Suna; Recipes using Fall Flavors

Cranberries

When you see cranberries starting to crop up, you know the festive season has arrived. We love putting craisins into just about any salad we make–and garnishing cocktails with cranberries or even incorporating them with smoothies to bring a perfectly tart flavor balance to whatever we make. But when we’re entertaining or after a bit of a treat–while still wanting to stay seasonal–these hazelnut-cranberry thumbprint cookies are the ultimate go-to.

Kale Ribbon Salad with Orange-Thyme Dressing recipe by Casa de Suna

Kale

Because of its hardiness, kale grows best in spring and fall, and our kale salad with orange-thyme dressing also makes use of cranberries (or dried cherries, if you prefer them), making it the perfect showcase of some of our favorite fall flavors. Bonus points for those who know that–while citrus may seem like a summer fruit–it’s actually in season from late fall through winter, meaning the dressing will be as zesty and flavorful as ever.

Carrot-Parsnip Cake Recipe by Casa de Suna; Recipes using Fall Flavors

Carrots

In most parts of America, carrot season takes place between July and November–and simply roasting them in olive oil and sea salt is enough to bring out their sweet and ground flavors. But if you’re looking to take things to the next level, you can also go all-in with our carrot parsnip (in season October through May) cake.
