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 […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 8th December 2017

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 8th December 2017 As we’re in the silly season, not many fresh produce lines go down in the run up to Christmas and this year is no different. On the plus side some items are not as expensive as per previous years either. Baby Vegetables have been a problem […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 17th November 2017

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 17th November 2017 I love this time of year with all the Game that is available and a great way to liven up a dish is with Quince. Whether you Poach, Puree, Roast or turn into a Jelly, I totally recommend the Turkish Quince we are buying at the […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 3rd December 2017

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 3rd November 2017 Now we’re into November we all want some winter warming vegetables and you can’t go far wrong with English Rainbow Chard, it looks excellent, tastes great, very healthy and hardly any waste. Regular white stemmed French Chard (sometimes called ‘Blette’) is also very good and available too. […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 27th October 2017

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 27th October 2017 English & French Jerusalem Artichokes are very good this time of year, they’re very versatile, though most people just puree or roast them. The Political elections and the horrendous rain in Kenya is having both a supply and quality problem on Fine Beans, Sugar Snaps & […]

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 20th October 2017

Fruit & Vegetable Market Report – 13th October 2017   Not a very eventful week on the market…… Kenyan French Beans are very reasonable this week and the Top & Tail are really good. Romanesque Cauliflowers have been plentiful so prices are realistic and worth buying. As we change over from Dutch produce to Spanish […]
