Seasonal Fruit and Veg

Fresh fruit and veg for the festive season

As we approach the festive season, don’t forget we offer a wide range of seasonal fresh produce from our Market Stall, sourced in the main from local suppliers.

If you have any questions, want recommendations on ‘best in season’ or to place an order, please email garydeare@aol.com or give us a call on 01803 842148.

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.
