This winter you’ll find the very best locally grown produce and traditional seasonal imports at Ely Market.


Great steamed, boiled, or smothered with a delicious cheese sauce. For something new, try roasting it in the oven with some curry spices for a great accompaniment to fish and meat.

Seville Oranges

A traditional seasonal import that brightens up January. Perfect for marmalade! Also look out for Blood Oranges and clementines. Try this recipe for Blood Orange and poppy seed muffins.

Root vegetables

Carrots, swedes, turnips and parsnips are a great winter mainstay in the kitchen. We like to use these in soups and stews. For something new, try mashing swede with butter and milk and serving with sausages. If you’re feeling adventurous, try our carrot top salad recipe!

Kale and Savoy Cabbages

Two great green vegetables that are packed with goodness. If you want a change from boiling or steaming, try stir frying with garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Delicious served with grilled fish or meat.
