MARKET REPORTS

The Total Produce Market Report August 2019

August always has a mixture of some wonderful late summer treats and as we see autumn starting to creak open the door ever so slightly, there will be an abundance of delightful late summer product with just a dash of pre-autumnal produce.

Fruit

Plenty of English Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries and Blueberries will be available throughout August. Unfortunately, English Cherries will finish this month and we will be back onto American Cherry. Make the most of the English Cherry before the prices rocket!

English Currants are also available; we have Blackcurrants and Redcurrants in stock which are full of flavour!

We are moving into the English Plum season this month, fantastic to eat but will start off small. Victoria Plums will reach our markets next month.

Vegetables

We are now onto new season English Carrot which has meant a big drop in price (finally!). We have also started new season English Parsnips and Swede this month. New season Swedes have started off small but will increase in size very soon.

British Peas, Runner Beans and Broad Beans are all fantastic quality and is a popular local produce on a lot of menus this month.

Due to flooding in Lincolnshire last month we are seeing a lack of good Broccoli arriving onto our markets, prices are rising because of availability dropping but we should see an improvement in a couple of weeks.
