The Total Produce Market Report August 2017

August, a month of terrific late summer produce with just a hint of early autumn joys to come.

The Total Produce Market Report July 2017

A terrific time for home grown produce and there’s some glorious summer fruit from mainland Europe. Not so cheery for supplies from the southern hemisphere though and dairy news is positively bleak.

The Total Produce Market Report May 2017

That wonderful sense of anticipation as we teeter on the edge of the most bountiful time of the year.

The Total Produce Market Report April 2017

Some pretty fine weather has worked wonders with the early asparagus crop. There's Jersey Royals, Cornish Earlies and some damn fine tomatoes. Broccoli in crisis, those New Year Spanish floods cast a long shadow.

The Total Produce Market Report March 2017

After a very difficult couple of months it really does feel like the worst is behind us and there’s a lot to look forward to. The first early spring produce is arriving and supplies from growers in Southern Europe are much improved.

The Total Produce Market Report February 2017

Citrus superstars abound this month and the veg crisis isn’t quite as bad as it was. We say Hurrah for parsley root and sweet potatoes and are cheered by the odd glimmer of spring.

The Total Produce January Market Report 2017

Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb and Blood Oranges are this month’s key ingredients but dreadful news from Spain may make you rethink your January menus.

The Total Produce December Market Report 2016

Christmas menus were written ages ago so this month we look at what you should be using in the new year. What are the ingredients that’ll make your January menus sparkle and save you money?

The Total Produce November Market Report 2016

The falling pound is bound to impact on the prices of the imported produce that we rely on through the winter. BUT even in November there’s still plenty of home-grown fruit and veg that can play a major part in your menus. It’s a terrific time for brassicas, particularly the lovely Kalette.
