The Rutabaga River was a river mentioned in The Austere Academy. It is probably located in the City or vicinities.

It was mentioned that someday Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire were taken for a picnic on the riverside by their father. He was so excited about the food he made, that he forgot to pack silverware and they had to eat sweet-and-sour shrimp with their hands. Afterwards, Violet was fishing in the river with a fishing rod that she herself had invented, Klaus was spoon blackberries with his mother and Sunny was gnawing some rocks.[1]

The author also commented that the Baudelaires never visited the Rutabaga River again.[1]
