Awards for Waterhouse Fayre and Dalefoot Composts

We’ve been stocking jams and preserves from Devon based Waterhouse Fayre for some time now, and were delighted to hear that they were winners in this year’s Taste of the West Awards.

The local business scooped Gold, Silver and Commended for their varieties of jam, marmalade, pickle and chutney; including Whortleberry Jam & Chutney, Lemon & Ginger Marmalade and Runner Bean Chutney.

You can find a range of lines from Waterhouse Fayre in the shop with more lines available to order. Browse their full range on their website here: www.waterhousefayre.co.uk.

And from jams and preserves to peat-free compost…our friends Dalefoot Composts were runners up in this year’s first ever RHS Chelsea Sustainable Garden Product of the Year Award for their peat-free compost range. Launched this year, the award aims to honour and promote the use of alternative, more sustainable materials to address the challenges of climate change, plastic and pollution. 

Congratulations to both, and keep up the good work!

Fresh fruit and veg forecast for the rest of October

The changing of the seasons brings a change to the seasonal produce we have available on the Market Stall and to order, supplied in the most part from local farmers across Devon and Cornwall.

To get the best out of the season over the next few weeks, we would recommend:

Cabbage (January King and Savoy), Kale (Green Curly, Cavalo Nero, Calabrese) and Romanesque Cauli. There’s also Salad Potatoes, Spring Onions, Apples, Mixed Squash, Celeriac, Swede and Carving Pumpkins ahead of Halloween.

If it’s best value produce you’re looking for:

Opt for Cabbage, Corn on the Cob, Calabrese Kale, Tricolour Peppers and Potatoes. For fruit, take your pick from Limes, Bramley Apples, Pomegranate and large unripened Mangos.

And for something novel:

You can find fresh chestnut mushrooms, cranberries and Sharon fruit.
