Market Produce Supplement & Festive ideas
We’re already thinking about Christmas at Wild Harvest, so here is an alternative to your weekly update to let you know what we will be stocking our warehouse with this festive period.
Just to let you know we are expecting Long-Legged Red Partridge for the end of this week and there is a possibility of Cep for mid-week. The flush of Ceps we received from Romania were beautiful and we hope the same quality will continue as October season rolls on steadily. Due to weather conditions in France, Chanterelles are not available this week, though we are expecting more reliable sources from Bulgaria,Spain and Scotland in the next fortnight or so.
We also have a promotion on Italian Cooking wines until the end of September, saving you £4.00 on a 9L case. Please speak to your account manager for more information.
So, ho ho ho…
