Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 17th April 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 17th April 2018 There is some fine English produce starting to trickle through to us now as the weather warms up. The English Asparagus in Green & Purple is lovely but still fetching high prices. English Cauliflowers are a good size now and much better value for money. Italian/Spanish […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 10th April 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 10th April 2018 Still a lack of English Produce coming through, it is reported that the ourdoor Jersey Royal Potato Crop is three weeks late this year due to the wet cold weather and all the salads are late already. Cucumbers are plentiful so prices are reasonable. Plum Tomatoes […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 27th March 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 27th March 2018 So British Summertime has started….really! This time last year we were talking about English Asparagus, English Lettuces, English Heritage Tomatoes, no such luck this year yet. OK, there is a very small amount that has been picked just to be the first but commercially, no chance. But, […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 9th March 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 9th March 2018 I do love a Jersey Royal Potatoes and they’re available now. The earthiness and texture is just divine. Jersey Royals have been grown on Jersey for 140 years. Today there are approximately 20 island farmers who grow Jersey Royals. The Jersey soil is light and well drained and […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 2nd March 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 2nd March 2018 Needless to say the weather is affecting almost everything. Even if the Farmer manages to pick the crop he may not be able to get the transport to him to collect it. A good example is Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb, its grown in sheds inside and is […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 23rd February 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 23rd February 2018 Spring is only around the corner but you’d be excused from not believing this when you consider the cold weather now and over the next week. Needless to say we’ve already been told that as it affects Europe too there will be casualties. We’ve already been […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 13th February 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 13th February 2018 Mmm… Pancake day. Personally I quite like pancakes and needless to say so does our Super Salesman Matt, who said he likes this tradition and will probably have a few later, but he wasn’t quite so polite when asked what he was giving up for Lent! Not […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 2nd February 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 2nd February 2018 Just like the novelty song “Yes, we have no bananas” from 1923, we too are suffering from a shortage of Bananas, this has led to a jump in price. Currently it is a culmination of a few factors – less being shipped during the holidays, productivity problems […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 23rd January 2018

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 23rd January 2018 Well, another year is upon us and thankfully it’s a better start than last year as we had the really bad weather in Spain that made some produce almost non existent and very expensive. That isn’t to say we’ve got away scot-free this year as there […]
