It's 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. Look out for wet walnuts, and medlars.
We're loving all of the pictures of winter squash you're posting on instagram. Do tag us we love to see what you're buying and cooking. Plenty of varieties

Acorn squash, and Crown Prince, Harlequin, Red Kiri, Green Cabucha,

Winter vegetables; Celery, celeriac, parsnips, carrots, red cabbage, Jerusalem artichokes, sprout tops, sprouts green and purple are all in peak fitness ready for the colder months. We're already thinking about what's going to be on our plates for Christmas dinner! There's always a wide choice of potatoes for perfect roasties.
