If you couldn’t tell from our hiking and brunch post, we’re foodies here at Scout. For us, food ranks pretty high on our list of favorite things about fall. To make sure you don’t miss out on the season’s best eats, our farmer’s market expert Clara Cardillo put together a list of some quintessential fall produce not to be missed this year.


Produce: Tomatoes

Out of season: Beginning of November

Where to get it: Head to Trestle in the Financial District for their mouth-watering roasted tomato soup. Pair it with focaccia bread, burrata cheese and basil for a light lunch or an appetizer before your main dish.

friedokracropProduce: Okra

Out of season: Mid-November

Where to get it: Try the fried okra from Souley Vegan in Oakland. You’ll get a heaping plate of perfectly seasoned, fresh okra coated with cornbread. If you’re into spicy foods, their okra gumbo is not to be missed.

avocadotoastcropProduce: Avocados

Out of season: November

Where to get it: Head to Green Heart Foods in the Mission for their famous avocado toast. A slice of perfectly toasted gluten-free bread piled high with avocado and cucumber and topped with dill. Pair it with their lentil salad and a cup of iced coffee (with coffee ice cubes!) for a delicious, healthy lunch.

Produce: Cucumbers

Out of season: November

Where to get it: Though this spot is known for their bourbon, Bourbon and Branch makes a delicious cucumber gin gimlet that is very refreshing. Knock one back while you wait for a table at Wilson and Wilson, the secret speakeasy inside the bar whose entrance is through a hidden bookcase. (Want to know the password to get in? Ask your Scout.)

Strawberry and rhubarb pie
Produce: Rhubarb

Out of season: December

Where to get it: Try the strawberry rhubarb and apple rhubarb pies at Mission Pie. The pies are homemade with top-quality ingredients and have the perfect filling to (buttery, flaky) crust ratio. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
