Earlier than last year, asparagus is back at markets this weekend.
Don't miss out on this years crop of asparagus, at markets earlier in the season. We usually expect it around St George's Day 23rd April but it's already at markets. Asparagus is one of our favourite vegetables. Whether you eat it raw, steamed, roasted, stir fried or lightly boiled it's delicious.
Scapes are the flowering stem of any hardneck garlic variety such as Elephant Garlic. They are in season in May for about 6 weeks only.
Can you believe that this year marks the 5th anniversary of West Hampstead farmers market? Thank you so much for your support; we hope that you
keep enjoying the market for another 5 years.
You may have seen very early strawberries for sale at some markets, on Fiveways Fruit Farms stall. Julian Mead explains.
