September gives us the best of both when it comes to produce. We still hang on to some of the best summer has to offer and the beginning of the autumnal produce is just on the horizon too. A lot of our fruits will switch from local to Southern Hemisphere but we will now start to see local vegetables coming through strong.
These remain at relatively high levels due to continuing world supply shortages and we will keep you informed of any changes on our Twitter and Facebook
Finished for Now:
Cherries will finish sometime during the month, depending on the weather. Fresh Peas and Broad Beans Local Blueberries
On The Way Out Or Difficult:
