Fruit & Vegetable Market Report December 11th 2015
There are some lovely Jersey Royal Potatoes available, but they do come at a steep price. English Cauliflowers remain a good Price. English Black Cabbage. Kale, and Purple Sprouting Broccoli are all excellent quality.Brussels (inc. prepared), Brussel Tops and Brussels on the Stem are still reasonable and there’s a few Purple Sprouts too. All Heritage Carrots, White, Purple, Mixed Bunches and Mini Chantenay all still available. Mange-Toute & Sugar Snaps remain in short supply so prices are still high, although Fine Beans are not affected at the moment.
Strawberries have eased a little but prices are volatile. South African Stone Fruit is slowly improving, the Nectarines are not bad, the Peaches are still not recommended, but we do have Apricots now and Plums are starting to arrive, but are still pricey. Chilean Cherries are better quality, but still very expensive. Kaki Fruit is popular at the moment and they are a good size too.
Bunches of Mistletoe and Holly is available.
