Fruit and Vegetables

We stock quite a varied range of fresh fruit and vegetables with as much produce as possible being grown within the wonderful county of Cornwall. We are always open to suggestions on other fruit, vegetables and produce that our customers may want us to supply so pop in for a chat and let us know what you’d like to see in our shop.

Aiming to keep close to our seasonal produce ethos, we work hard to make sure you get the produce at its prime so that you can enjoy the crunch of a fresh apple, sweetness of a local strawberry or richness of asparagus that has travelled a few miles, rather than a few thousand. Once you’ve tried eating seasonal produce you won’t be able to go back!

Of course, favourites such as apples, bananas, pears and oranges are always on offer with English apples and pears sourced as soon as they become available in late summer/early autumn.

Lovely sweet and juicy local strawberries are in stock from early June through to October, and tasty local asparagus is available from late April through to the end of June, a short season so come in and enjoy it while available!
