Get here extra early this December - stocks fly out fast with the Christmas rush.
Sprouts in all formats are in high demand. Below are kalettes, a cross between this plant and kale, which is also in season. The kalettes were kindly donated by wholesaler A S Thorogood.
January King cabbage is another brassica on hand, along with British kohl rabi. Broccoli tends to be Spanish.
For fruit, leafy clems lead the pack amongst the citrus. But there's also a lot of intriguing and unusual hybrids. These, for example, are Moroccan-grown finger limes over at wholesaler Gilgrove.
Don't forget English apples and pears, which are on excellent form and good value.
It's a great time for lychees and pomegranates.
Figs are now edging over to Southern Hemisphere.
The season for Yorkshire forced rhubarb will start at the end of the month or early January. In the meantime, you'll find Dutch.
Along with spuds, it's a fine time for roots. These are Jerusalem artichokes.
Lovely bunched British beetroot.
From the Continent, you'll also find chervil root, salsify and crosnes, along with puntarella, cime di rapa, artichokes, fennel, peppers, walnuts, hazlenuts, chestnuts and winter tomatoes such as jet-black Camone.
Garlic is a good buy. This is purple from Lautrec.
And wet garlic over at wholesaler Gilgrove.
Radicchio is building up speed. Not much Tardivo about yet, but Castelfranco and Precoce are easy to source.
See you in 2019. In the meantime, feel free to add comments or questions or ping us an email at email@example.com.
