If you're lucky and first to market in the morning you may be able to find the last few cherries of the season. Alongside them we have juice greengages, plums, blackberries and the first Discovery apples of the season.

Is it too early in the year to think about a crumble? Greengages and damsons make the best crumbles (after gooseberries) in our opinion. Pair with a carton of cream from the market and you're sorted!
There are many different varieties of plums; try a few and see which you like. They also make lovely compotes, great for breakfast with yogurt and granola, and wonderful jam.
Love your farmers market?
Blackheath Farmers Market features in todays story on The Farmers Country Showdown.
We love our winter vegetables. Steamed, buttered sprout tops, braised red cabbage, celeriac mash, roast Jerusalem Artichokes, you're only limited by your imagination!
All of our farmers markets start back this weekend. Some farmers and producers are still away; your market may be a little smaller than usual.
It's Great British Game Week; say hello to our game dealers at our markets this weekend and try something new!
