The Mid-Autumn Festival is almost here! Are you ready? Falling on September 21 this year, we’ve got you covered with our shopping list of traditional foods that are served and enjoyed during this holiday.

MOONCAKES

The most iconic food enjoyed for the celebration is of course, the delicious mooncake. Homemade or store-bought; and coming in various styles, fillings and flavours; they symbolise the moon and family unity. They say that families with mooncakes in hand are harmonious, happy and healthy. Gift these to family and friends to convey your best wishes!

Where to buy them:

DUCK

Duck has become a festival favourite, as it is thought to be at its tastiest and richest in autumn. But even in spring (on our side of the globe), we’re still keen to enjoy the fowl salted, roasted, marinated or smoked.

Where to buy them:

CRAB

Just like duck, the crab is often a special seasonable delicacy for Mid-Autumn Festival reunion dinners. Better yet, they have great nutritional benefits too as they are rich in protein and amino acids.

Where to buy them:

LOTUS ROOT

Available year-round but often sought after for the celebration, is the humble lotus root. Packed with essential minerals and vitamins, this starch helps to increase appetite and keep you healthy. A classic dish of steamed lotus root with glutinous rice and honey signifies a charming and happy life.

Where to buy them:

PUMPKIN, WATERMELON, PEARS & POMELOS

Certain fresh produce during the festival have different meanings, but they can all help to make your family meal a little more nutritious too! Here’s what they stand for:

  • Pumpkin: To bring good health.
  • Watermelon: An essential snack for the Mid-Autumn Festival, the watermelon signifies fertility for being full of seeds and its round shape is a symbol of family reunion.
  • Pears: You eat them in the hopes of avoiding separation with your loved ones over the next year. Eating them implies you have a desire to reunite with people.
  • Pomelos: Represents blessings for children and grandchildren.

Where to buy them:

From our family to yours, we wish you good health and happiness, and a wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival.
