Market Report 1st October ‘19 – 15th October ‘19

Hello and welcome to our latest Market Report. As ever we have plenty of delicious produce to tell you about this week. If the wait between editions is just too long why not visit our website for all the latest news and information.


A wide variety of UK grown mixed Squashes are back in season. Ask our telesales team about the different types available.

The first UK Brussels Sprouts are here but supply is limited for now but that will improve in the coming weeks.

Fresh Broad Beans have come to an end but they are still available frozen in 1kg bags. Piccolo Parsnips and Mixed Chantenay Carrots are back in season and looking great.
Best Buys: UK Broccoli, Green Courgettes, UK Savoy Cabbage, Leeks, Banana Shallots, UK Parsnips and Extra Small New Potatoes


The Dutch Tomato season is coming to an end and the price and sadly the availability of Yellow Cherry Tomatoes has been badly hit. In better news Potato supply has thankfully stabilised and both price and quality have returned to normal.

Best Buys: Cos Lettuce, Baby Gem Lettuce, Chinese Leaf Lettuce and Celery


The first new season UK Cox and Russet Apples are here.

Our Mangoes are now European and we’ve seen an improvement in quality and price. Yellow Plums and Pomelo are both back in full swing.

Gooseberries have finished as have all European grown Cherries and European Melons are also coming to an end but the Brazilian season is up and running and we expect to see the size and quality increase soon.

Brazilian Figs on the other hand have finished and our stock is now Turkish.

Finally, Orange supply is limited due to the lack of availability in Europe. They are currently only available from South African but the air freight costs involved in getting them here pushes the price up.

Best Buys: UK Cox Apples, Blueberries, Figs, Mangoes, Red Plums and Raspberries
