Welcome from Guy Warner
There’s a reason we celebrate the harvest in September – it’s a month full of promise. Late summer produce is soaking up the last rays of sunshine while early autumn produce is bountiful – it’s the season when Eton mess gives way to apple and pear crumbles, when peach and fig salads morph into hearty casseroles full of chunky root vegetables and when you find yourself craving a deep, vibrant red over a frivolous, fruity rosé.
It’s the month when we celebrate our great British produce with British Food Fortnight (23rd September-6th October), and when we remember that we are what we eat, thanks to Organic September.
As ever, we are supporting our local producers this month, with apples, pears and plums freshly picked from Hayles Fruit Farm in Toddington. Rediscover heritage varieties and take pleasure in tucking into fruit that’s as fresh as if you’d picked it yourself. Try out our new Discover the Choice range of fresh foods, everyday essentials and quick meals, and take a look at the seasonal offerings on our new butcher’s in our Moreton store. All that, plus join us for free in-store tastings from local suppliers during British Food Fortnight.
