We are past the worst of our supply issues. Our shops are full again and our online store is pumping. Our problem is mainly difficulties with transport but I feel that will work itself out soon. The other good news is that vegetable prices are easing back from recent record highs and we are on track again with our organic offering.
In fruit, we have come to an end of KPs. We still have some excellent Honeygolds starting from down South that should go well into next week when we will have Brooks for a week or two. Berries have really picked up over the week. Blueberries are nothing special however we have top quality well priced strawberries and winter raspberries in stock. There continues to be a feast of all grapes as access and transport to our traditional export markets both continue to be a problem. Papaya is in glut supply this week and there are plenty of apples, pears and pineapples available. Fuyu fruit has started again, maybe not quite as coloured as I would prefer and at last, supply is catching up with demand for lemons so we will have a reasonably priced Imperfect offer available this week.
IN VEG: At last, we are seeing relief in vegetable prices. Our basic spuds (brushed only, not any of the washed varieties) onions and carrots have all eased back in price this week. Perhaps the biggest fall of all is Lebanese Cucumbers - less than half last weeks price! We recommend good imperfect zucchini and kumera again, far cheaper than prices we have seen in the last two weeks. Beans remain very good value, fennel is a bargain and lettuce has nearly halved in price. It's good to be back in business, feeding our customers at a reasonable price. Stay safe and healthy, in time this will pass if we all observe the basic rules.
