 Good Buys
 Raspberries and Cheddar Strawberries are both UK grown and taste brilliant.

The good English season for Cherries will shortly begin and are great paired with herbs such as sage and chives. The also work really well with meats such as pork and beef.

Our fresh Plums are now new season Spanish.
Loose gooseberries are UK grown juicy, tart and full-flavoured. Use them to make a delicious gooseberry crumble. Later in the season we will see dessert gooseberries that are much sweeter and good enough to eat raw!

Flat Peaches or Donut Peaches are great not only for their distinguished shape but their slightly sweeter flavour than a normal peach. With their rose coloured velvety skin and ivory flesh they are a great summer snack.

New season Mids are fab! They do have a slightly looser skins which means they require less cooking time! They are also slightly sweeter due to their sugars not being converted into starch, which makes them perfect for a salad! English Bunched Beetroot from Worcester are a perfect accompaniment to a lovely summery dish.

Broad Beans are now bursting at the seams! Did you check out last month’s recipe of Broad Bean and Bruschetta, if not go to arthurdavid.co.uk/shorething to check it out!
The first arrival of our quintessentially British Runner Beans are here, some say it wouldn’t be summer without them!

Cabbage isn’t just for winter you know! We have superb new season, UK grown Primo and Savoy Cabbage now in stock. We have a great supply of new season French Turnips available to order. Our incredibly versatile Fresh Peas are sweet and tender, they are the ultimate summer treat.


Just to Note: Dairy Increases


What makes our Urban Mixed Leaf so special?

We will shortly see an increase in the cost ofCream. The products this will affect are; Single Cream (902), Double Cream (897) and Whipping Cream (901). This unfortunately will have a knock-on effect with the cost of Butter both Salted and Unsalted.

Our Urban Mixed Leaf also known as the Severn Project Leaf is grown just 10 miles away!  

The project supports people recovering from drug and alcohol misuse, people with poor mental health & those with offending background to try & get them back into work.
