Three Cheers for U.K. Produce…
Summer is starting to dance towards us faster so let’s celebrate all the wonderful U.K produce.
There is an absolute Aladdin’s cave of produce with the phrase ‘Bang in season’ written all over it. Let’s get those Seasonal Menus packed with the flavour of May!!
In April we will see the return of English Strawberries (hallelujah!) These tasty fruits will first arrive in small punnets as availability will be low and prices will start high, once the season really kicks in we will see prices drop and availability increase.
We are still a few months away from seeing the first European Melons arrive on our markets, until then we are sticking to the trusty Southern Hemisphere melons!
After the hottest February since records begun we can all start looking forward to some early spring produce arriving onto our Fruit Markets.
Finally, dull January is out the way and we can look forward to some busier months ahead and we have Valentine’s Day just around the corner. Unfortunately, the cold nights and frosty mornings may make it a difficult month. Here’s a quick update on the Fruit and Veg world!
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!
This next year is going to be a tough year for the potato lovers, any graded potato will demand high prices.
Coloured cauliflower is now making an appearance along with new season purple sprouting, rainbow chard and black kale.
