Fruit and Vegetable Market Report for June 2023

Stone fruit is flowing into the Market this month. Cherries are typically Spanish, with the UK crop due in some weeks once the sunshine returns.


Other stone fruit includes peaches, nectarines and apricots. Melons including Charentais and Pied de Sapo have also started.


For British fruit, the berry season is about to begin. Strawberries are underway with currants and gooseberries to follow.


These are the speciality pink berry - typically grown in The Netherlands and Belgium.

Typically, the UK asparagus season ends in late June. This year, the crop has suffered due to cold weather so it's harder to find the larger spears.


UK salads are in full flow. Jersey Royals - mids and ware grades - are available. Cornish new potatoes due soon.

For brassicas, UK-grown kale is on hand. Cabbages such as Savoy often from Spain and Portugal.

Homegrown peas will be ready any time now. It is also a good time for outdoor rhubarb.
