Winter vegetables are delicious!
We're heading towards the hungry gap when farmers are running out of stored winter vegetables and the spring veg hasn't begun yet. But we're not there yet. There are plenty of brightly coloured winter vegetables on the markets including the aptly named January King cabbage, celeriac, parsnips, celery, purple sprouting broccoli, winter leaves, beetroot, carrots, onions, red cabbage, rhubarb, and wild garlic.
You'll find stored apples, plus Jerusalem artichokes, leeks, main crop potatoes, swede, turnips and kohlrabi.
It's still game season, heading towards the end of the season for feathered game so you might pick up a bargain!
Look out for rabbit, pigeon, venison, wild duck, pheasant and partridge.
Hogget and mutton for warming winter roasts and stews. Shellfish from crabs and lobsters to mussels, oysters and scallops and clams. Fish to look out for include mackerel, plaice, and turbot.
It's official, we're glad to be back and we can't wait to see you all.
