MARKET REPORTS

The Total Produce Market Report June 2019

The first of the Spanish Melon season has arrived onto the market which also means the end of the Southern Hemisphere season. The Melon will start off small and prices will be a little high but as we progress through the season the melon size will increase and prices will fall.

European stone fruit season is underway and prices are dropping rapidly with availability increasing each week. These delicious fruits such as Peach, Nectarine and Apricot are always a popular choice throughout the summer. You also find Spanish Cherries starting to appear at your local depot.

Fruit

English strawberries are still trickling onto the market but we should see increased supplies over the next month, we should also have the first English Raspberry available by the middle of the month.

French Apple season has finished and we move straight over to southern hemisphere fruit. Prices will be higher but the Apples are just as tasty! We will start with apples from New Zealand, Chile and Brazil. European Apple should be back with us around Aug/Sept.

Grapefruits are a real struggle at the moment, very short supply and prices have rocketed! This should settle down over the next few weeks but we recommend avoiding if possible.

Exotics

We only have a month or so left until the British Asparagus Season finishes so make sure you make the most of it. You will miss them when their gone!

South African Butternut Squash is the best choice right now but you will have to pay a little bit more than you would for the European Squash.
