What's In Season

Apricot

Did you know that the apricot belongs to the rose family? They are at their best between May and September and are delicious in tarts or pies. Although their sweet and slightly tart taste also makes an interestingly tasty chicken dish too.

Artichoke

With its slightly nutty and earthy flavour, artichoke is excellent in so many dishes. From salads to sides and even enjoyed on their own with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. These delicious root vegetables are best from June to November. Our hand-picked artichokes can be roasted, steamed, or eaten raw for a burst of nutritional flavour.

Asparagus

Spears of slender asparagus appear on market stalls in late April and the season lasts until late June. With its delicate and distinct taste, asparagus is great as a side dish for a host of proteins. It’s not just tasty, though, asparagus is also packed full of nutrients and minerals.

Aubergine

With a glossy purple skin and a rich, savoury flavour, aubergines are a staple in Mediterranean recipes. Perfect for grilling or roasting, these vegetables are high in fibre and are even thought to aid in weight loss. They are at their best between July and September.

Blueberries

The best time for blueberries in the UK is July to August. They have a very short season, but they certainly make up for it in taste. Whether you’re making overnight oats, smoothies or want to add some flare to a bland salad, grab a punnet of blueberries and have some fun.

Beetroot

Soups, salads and smoothies, is there anything that beetroot can’t do? You can even use this delicious root vegetable to dye your clothes. Our hand-selected beetroot is bursting full of flavour and colour. It’s sure to add a touch of colour and earthy goodness to anything you add it to.

Broccoli

These tiny edible trees, with a flavourful earthy taste, come from trusted vendors right here in London. Whether used in a stir-fry or simply boiled through, broccoli is a tasty addition to any meal. It also has plenty of health benefits, so it's well worth including in your dishes.

Carrots

Classic and iconic, our carrots are personally selected from London's finest vendors to ensure their freshness. For a sweet crunch as a snack, a side, or a versatile ingredient in soups and stir-fries.

Cauliflower

Cauliflower offers a mild, slightly nutty flavour and a versatile texture, making it a valuable ingredient for a wide variety of recipes. Cauliflower is typically in season all year round although extreme temperature changes can affect it.

Celeriac

Celeriac is available year-round but it’s at its best from September to April. This slightly odd-looking root vegetable offers a nutty flavour, perfect for adding a depth of flavour to soups and stews. It also works great in slaws and is super tasty when creamed into a puree.

Leeks

Leeks are their freshest from November to April. With a mild oniony taste, leeks are ideal in comforting pies, steamy stews or creamy quiches. They are packed full of nutrients and sure to brighten any meal. All of our leeks are hand-selected by us in the best London fruit and vegetable markets.

Peppers

From late spring to early autumn, peppers offer a bright and vibrant addition to any dish you can think of. They are a great source of vitamin C and low in calories. Our peppers are hand-picked from trusted London vendors for their freshness and quality.

Purple Sprouting Broccoli

With a mild and peppery taste, purple sprouting broccoli is at its best between February and April. Purple sprouting broccoli brings a freshness to your meals and vital vitamins to your body, such as fibre, iron, and calcium.

Spring onions

The youngest and most tender spring onions are found in the spring and early summer. These are ideal for a delicious salad, or sprinkled over the top of homemade soap. Spring onions are a versatile choice for both garnishing and cooking. All our spring onions are hand-picked here in London.

Cherries

In season this time of year, cherries are sweet and succulent fruits for a true summer delight. Whether enjoyed as a snack or in a dessert, locally sourced cherries bring a burst of vibrancy, colour, and flavour to the season.

Corn on the cob

Our fresh corn on the cob has a naturally sweet flavour. Enjoy it as a side dish or in various culinary creations, sweetcorn is a good source of dietary fibre, vitamins, and antioxidants.

Cucumber

So refreshing! Add chunks of cucumber to your water bottle to help with hydration during the working day. Cucumber is also a key ingredient in Pimm’s. For a salad, use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons of cucumber – these look dazzling on the plate

New Potatoes

New potatoes are a symbol of spring and are at their best during June and July. Beloved for their soft texture, tender skins, and delicate flavour. New potatoes are perfect for boiling, steaming, mashing, or roasting.

Raspberries

In their prime in late June to early September, raspberries are plump and juicy fruits ideal for enjoying as part of the summer. With a vibrant red hue and a tart flavour, these berries are popular for snacking and baking.

Strawberries

We can’t get enough of strawberries this year. New modern varieties mean the flavour is better than ever. For homemade desserts, strawberries go brilliantly with meringue – such as in the classic Eton Mess or decadent Pavlova. Or use the fruit to decorate a homemade trifle.

Tomatoes

We hand-select all our tomatoes when they are at their ripest. Tomatoes are one of the most versatile veg (technically a fruit) in the world. Enjoy them in salads, soups, chillis and lots more. Why not give our Heirloom tomatoes a try? They offer more colour and flavour to any dish.
