FALL Food France SUSTAINABILITY

DBDP In Season Calendar – Fall

Here is DBDP’s “Fall In Season Calendar” based on what is produced in the Paris area. Sometimes, as in the case of lemon and orange, we have to get them from the south of France, Italy, and Spain. In any case, the nearest, the better.

Pumpkins and cabbages are the stars of the season, together with apple, pear, chestnut, and persimmon, but you can also enjoy mushrooms, a variety of salads such as lettuce and corn salad, and much more.

You can bring this list with you when you go to the market to choose your food from what’s in season now. It will be tastier and more environmentally friendly.

A version in French and Italian is also available.

TIP : bookmark the page of your choice to have it always at hand ; )
