 Seasonal info…

We are being informed by supplier that the Potato crop is currently short by approximately 300,000 tonnes with nowhere in Europe to make up the shortfall, it is expected that prices will start to rise steadily.

We are likely to see a steady but slow increase in Spinach, we should have a small amount of Prepack toward the end of next week.

Cherries, Peaches, Nectarines have now finished for the season. There will be a short gap in the market until the Spain season starts.

Little Gem, Cos and Iceberg still remain hard to source with the current weather conditions in Spain.

Sourcing Baby Mix Leaf is slowly improving however the quality still remains poor which is leading to rejections.

Our lovely Autumnal Wild Mushrooms will come to an end in the next couple of weeks.
