What's newly in season where you are now?We went for a walk the other day and there were ripening figs on trees overhanging the street. Too bad they don't keep once they ripen. There were also some wild blackberries but they usually need more water than we get here. And they are a bit late this year.
And I saw the first grapes at the market this week too, although they probably came from Spain. The earliest apples are appearing too.
There are still lots of summer vegetables too: zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, various kinds of lettuce...

Other odd fruits--pluots, Gravenstein apples, figs.
Pear harvest is just beginning.
Prickly pear pads
Herbs of all kinds
Peppers--mild to chile
New crop almonds & walnuts just starting
Strawberries and more strawberries

4I saw Hatch chiles at a supermarket the other day, but I didn't put them on my list because they aren't local. But there are a ton of other peppers--both sweet & chile.
I forgot fresh prunes. These are varieties of plum that are specifically used for drying into prunes. The most common ones are French prune & Italian prune. People buy them to eat fresh or to do their own drying for prunes.

9We're still getting good corn, peaches, and watermelon. Tomatoes and peppers were great for a few months, but they're winding down now. We recently planted a bunch of seeds for lettuce, spinach, and so forth; it's getting less hot, so we're hoping to get a second crop of greens as we head into fall.

12Here too there are the first blackberries, unfortunately not loads though. And I just bought the first local grapes at the market: muscat. The new ones in the supermarkets are from Spain.

This a difficult question in Britain at present, bjd.
I could list what ought to be in season - but the Met. Office declared this year's summer to be the wettest in 100 years.
Still, English Victoria plums and Scottish raspberries were very good last month.
