The Market Garden at Eynsham
For £10 I got plenty of potatoes, a butternut squash, Cavolo nero (black kale), mushrooms, apples, onions, garlic and an assortment of purple and yellow carrots. All the produce was fresh, vibrant and of a very high quality. The £10 was very generous with plenty in it for several family meals.
I am already planning carrot soup, sausage, mash and onion gravy, kale pasta pesto and roasted butternut salad as well as garlic mushrooms for a weekend breakfast with some eggs. If the weather remains cold I may even manage an oaty apple crumble – yum!
The shop was absolutely beautiful containing many locally grown produce at very reasonable prices – often more competitive than large supermarkets.
I met Jonathan who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about where all the local fruit and vegetables came from. There is a wide variety of produce in the shop which is very clearly labelled with the price and source.
I couldn’t resist buying some additional cherry tomatoes which are a favourite in our household. In fact I think most of them got munched in the car on the journey home. They also sell loose salad leaves which I am told are extremely popular.
