The current Market Stall update – April 2021

This time of year is always challenging for buying local produce and planning interesting, delicious meals around the limited choice.

This year, we’ve had the added unprecedented dry spell which has affected all harvests.

For those of you willing to take on the challenge, this is the current Market Stall update:

Local produce from Devon:

Parsnips, swede, celeriac, potatoes, red and white cabbage, green and red kale

Cornish new potatoes:

Cornish new potatoes are currently being supplied at very high prices. We hope to be stocking these by the end of the month once the prices have settled to a more normal level.

Cauliflowers, hispi and savoy cabbage:

Due to the lack of rain over the last few months, these are available in very limited quantities, poorer quality and more expensive than usual.

From the rest of England:

Asparagus and purple sprouting broccoli (both recommend by Gary), broccoli, strawberries, rhubarb, Braeburn and Gala apples, Bramley cooking apples, carrots, Cavolo Nero kale, beetroot, January King cabbage, spring greens and rainbow chard

Bringing good value from the rest of the world:

Aubergines, courgettes, mangoes, red grapes

All other products are available in store and to order. Orders can be placed via email to or by phoning the shop on 01803 842148.

We’ll be sharing more about the stories behind the produce over the coming months, as we continue to provide updates on our Market Stall and fruit and veg forecasts.
