FRUIT & VEGETABLES
Fruit and veg is the centrepiece of every Earthy market store and we love to make a show of it. We source as much of it as we can from UK growers (Scottish Organic, ideally), but we live on a small island, so we also have to venture beyond these shores for some of our favourites.
Earthy fruit and veg are always seasonal, so you won’t find asparagus here outside May and June, or strawberries in December. We prefer it unwashed and unsprayed where possible and we judge on taste, not looks.
We also believe a bit of dirt isn’t a bad thing, it’s a great way of keeping veg fresher for longer, so sometimes you might have to scrape the odd clump of soil off your carrots and potatoes.
Whether they’re the cornerstone of your main meal or just a bit on the side, why not ask our fruit & veg champions about what is fresh from the farm. After all you will not get any fresher than food from Phantassie Organic Produce just 25 miles outside Edinburgh.
