Spring Produce

by Sam Pope

We are now starting to find some lovely seasonal Spring produce in the stores that we visit each week.

Jersey Royal Potatoes have been found in Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Co-op, Waitrose, Aldi and Lidl this week, with Morrisons offering just under 50% discount on 450g and 1kg bags. Waitrose are currently the only store selling Organic Jersey Royals (in 750g bags). We will keep our eyes peeled for this product also appearing in Asda and M&S in the upcoming weeks.

We are also into the start of the British Asparagus season. Again, this product has been found in Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Co-op, Waitrose, Aldi and Lidl, and also in M&S. The asparagus in Asda is currently coming from Peru, and Lidl are also offering asparagus from Spain, as well as the UK. Promotions on this product are being offered in Morrisons and M&S, with 2 for £3 in Morrisons and 2 for £4 in M&S.

Finally, our British Strawberries are just coming into season and these are now being sold in all of the Top 5 stores, as well as Waitrose and M&S, and Aldi and Lidl. Promotions found on British Strawberries in store are: 2 for £3 in Morrisons and 30% off in Lidl. Waitrose are only offering strawberries from the UK, with all of the other stores also selling strawberries from either Spain or Morocco.
