There’s produce aplenty as late summer salads meet early autumn veg…
It’s the best time of year for fresh, local produce at the market – as well as late summer produce such as beans, tomatoes and salad items, there’s just-ripened sweetcorn, juicy peppers and an abundance of apples and pears. That’s not forgetting an array of colourful beetroots, including candy, golden and ruby, as well as sack-fulls of potatoes.
The variety of squash available at the market beats any supermarket hands down – come and try something new, from early harlequin and onion varieties to the later ripening crown prince and butternut squashes.
Leeks make an appearance this season and you’ll also start to see early autumn and winter root veg hitting the stalls including carrots, turnips, swede and later in the autumn, pumpkin and celeriac.
