Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 29th March
As it’s the first day after the Easter break, things are a little up in air as to what is available as some suppliers have not sent in yet.
However, what we do know is Cauliflower is still very short, but we are expecting it to ease over the week. Broccoli is high in price on the back of it and Purple Sprouting Broccoli is expensive also. Brussels Sprouts are now coming to an end and Jersey Potatoes are a struggle to get. English Asparagus is around and quality is good but the prices are still very much on the high side. New Season Italian Broad Beans and Peas in Pod are more readily available now. It great to see Nutbourne Farm in West Sussex in now up and running with their English Heritage Tomatoes that are excellent and now in stock. Wild Garlic is also readily available.
Chilean Cherries remain very pricey but are available. Dutch Indoor Rhubarb is also on the dear side. English Braeburn Apples from M.J. Eastwood Farm in Kent are still crispy and eat very good but are coming to an end. South African Plums are available in Red and Yellow and eat well. Moroccan Peaches also eat well but are quite expensive.
