Market report from our latest Newsletter 25th August 2015

The Potato main crop harvest has well and truly started now and all potatoes are new season so the initial new season rise in prices have eased and are stabling. English Primo cabbages are a good size and value for money. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Cauliflowers, the prices has increased and the sizes are smaller as growers struggle with demand and are picking early. English Broccoli & Purple Sprouting Broccoli are both good at the moment and down in price too.
There’s not much to choose from on the Wild mushroom front and prices are on the dearer side. English Root crops too are still a bit on the pricey side for this time of year. Cucumber prices have rocketed as there is a supply shortage. Tomato prices have risen too.
Italian William Pears have started, so too have early English Conference PearsDiscovery Apples are still the only early English Apple but other varieties will be available imminently. Spanish Peaches & Nectarines are still good but the Water Melons are getting more expensive. English Plums are in full swing and and quality is good. Satsumas are coming to an end and we’ll have to move onto the dearer Nardicotts initially. Damsons are available now too.

Latest News Letter 14th August 2015 

The 12th August known as ‘The Glorious Twelth’ is upon us again, meaning the start of the Grouse shooting season and unfortunately due to bad spring weather it’s not so glorious as there were fewer nesting birds. The start of the shooting season means a menu change for many and a chance to add some seasonal fruits to their savoury menus.
So we have several varieties of English Plums,the first of the English Apples in Discovery,which are great for juicing. If your into your foraging, Elderberries are starting to ripen and there are plenty of Blackberries in the hedgerows.
On the Market there are many good English Brassicas, including Cavalo Nero, Curly Kaleand Broccoli that has now eased in price. Purple& Green Kohl Rabi and Purple & Yellow Cauliflower are available. For customers wanting a good chipping Potato, were still buying theSpanish Agria Potatoes until the English New crop has matured in size and skin.
Barlotti Beans are expensive at the moment, so to are Kenyan Fine Beans.
English Cherries
are imminently ending, but all the English Berries are in full flow includingBlack Currants & Blueberries. Lemons &Oranges are still expensive and show no sign of getting cheaper any time soon.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
