What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 15 October 2018

This madly fluctuating weather has seem some odd produce turning up out of its expected season. Sophie cut some rhubarb in Clissold Park earlier this week, while Hannah and the trainees on our Grown in Dagenham programme were harvesting strawberries last week - you can buy the jam they made at our farmers' market this coming Saturday (20th). In the bags this week, we have late sweetcorn and tomatoes as well as more autumnal goodies like red cabbage, golden beets, caulis and delicata and red kuri squash.

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Please wash all fruit and veg before eating.
