MARKET REPORTS

The Total Produce Market Report December 2021

Traditionally many festive menus are written well in advance with menu offerings slimmed down to reflect the time of year and help cater with the seasonal uptake. That said there are some delightful seasonal moments to be found if you look hard enough.

Fruit

Spanish Oranges will be available throughout December and Seville Oranges will follow the end of the month/early January. Blood Oranges won’t be around until January, we may see a small amount at the end of December but you’re better off waiting for the best fruit.

Spanish leafy Clementines are available and the quality is superb.

Planning ahead for January menus – One thing to look forward to after the busy period is the return of Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb; we should see the first deliveries early in the New Year.

Vegetables

Sprouts have been around for the last two months or so but we always advise to start using when the temperatures start to drop or ideally when we get a sharp frost. So now is ideal!

Savoy, Kale, Cavallenero, and other brassicas are all going strong and decent value for money.  Beetroots and Celeriac are all really popular this season and are good value.
