You may have already noticed that we’ve changed the way we price some of our leafy lines from per kilo to per 100g.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to providing quality, organic produce at a competitive price, and we feel this new format will give you a clearer picture of what you’ll actually be paying for at the till.
Incidentally, our wonderful UK growers have bestowed us with a truly abundant supply of all things leafy this week.
We’ve perpetual spinach from Libby Flintoff in Preston,
loose true spinach from Glebelands,
as well as some bagged (200g) true spinach from Farmstart in Stockport.
We often get asked about the difference between perpetual spinach and true spinach, and truth be told the former isn’t a spinach at all, but rather a variety of chard. Hardier than true spinach but with a similar flavour, perpetual spinach is best cooked and with the stalks removed.
Cavolo Nero and wild rocket from Libby Flintoff are also looking spectacular, as are the first summer cabbages courtesy of Duncan Gielty.
You can expect to see some local Glebelands lettuces over the weekend too .
And from Europe we’ve got a fabulous selection of stone fruits to choose from at the minute, with nectarines, peaches, apricots and cherries providing a welcome flavour of summer to your plates.
