Produce News for July

July 15th, 2017 by

We’re sad to announce that we are waving goodbye to both Local Asparagus and Fresh Gooseberries as both have been and gone in June. Don’t be too sad though as we have Frozen local available to keep you going until the season returns.

On The Way Out:

• Jersey Royals and Old Crop Potatoes will be replaced by new crop this month and into August and the main harvest begins on the early crops
• Old crop onions and shallots are also being replaced by new crop – less skin but much better quality
• Jerusalem Artichokes and Rhubarb are both finishing soon, so get them whilst you can
• Apples, Pears and Citrus fruits are all changing to southern hemisphere crops for the summer months and a little more expensive but the quality is

We’re happy to say that the list below is full of great tasting and excellent quality produce that we have in our warehouse for your menus throughout July and some even in to the first weeks of August. Give us a call on 01366 386633 to add them to your order.
