In season Autumn

September 29, 2016

It's officially Autumn and the sun is still shining. Whether it's sunshine or showers, produce is plentiful and colourful. 
Apples and pears are here; if you usually buy your fruit from the supermarket you'll be amazed by the choice of varieties, flavours and textures of apples at our markets. The fruit is freshly harvested, direct from the farm to you. Later in the season fruit is stored to keep it in peak condition, but at this time of the year it's straight from the tree. You could eat a different variety every day of the year and never get bored.

The strawberry life

July 08, 2014

Strawberry season is in full swing, from the twenty farms who grow and sell soft fruit at our farmers markets in London. Some farm conventionally, some are organic, a couple are biodynamic. And look out for our giant strawberries handing out samples at different locations around London.

 

If you’ve always taken your strawberries for granted, spare a thought for the growers. It’s not as easy to produce a crop of luscious berries as you may think.  Some of our growers waited a long time for enough good weather so that they have a large enough crop to bring to London.

There are amazing varieties of strawberries at all of our markets.
