What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 14 August 2017.

The summer produce keeps on coming - even if the summer doesn't. Plump, juicy tomatoes, crunchy sweetcorn, gleaming aubergines, courgettes, beets and beans coming in the veg bags, plus the first gages from Pear Necessities in Kent, some ultra-local apples grown by our patchwork farmer Giovanni in Allens Gardens, Hackney, and lots more fruit from Peach and Pippin in Essex.

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Please wash all fruit and veg before eating.
