The calm after the storm… Hope you all had a great Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year From everyone at Total Produce.
Christmas is on our doorstep, time to get some sprouts on your plate!
Brassicas are now at their best. Great value and full of flavour to add to your plate.
New season bakers and main crop potatoes are now available following a short period of poor quality old season product, however, prices will rise!

Coloured cauliflower is now making an appearance along with new season purple sprouting, rainbow chard and black kale.

The Dutch salad season is in full flow and as usual the quality is excellent.
There’s a good supply of super quality home-grown rainbow chard.
Sweet potatoes are in short supply and are commanding high prices. The forced Rhubarb season has now finished and we have moved over to outdoor varieties.
The very first Jersey Royals will make an appearance, be warned… they will be reassuringly expensive.
