Taste of the Week. Fresh from the Island

Fresh from the Island - Taste of the Week
As luck would have it, I arrived at the Fresh from West Cork stall in the English Market just as Mairtin O’Mealoid from Cape Clear Farm was making a delivery of his salads, picked early that morning. A couple of bites later - not the Chiellini type - and I was happy I had my Taste of the Week.

The huge bag of mixed salad leaves is great value and fantastic quality. Try it. But do try and get yours hands on some of his other leaves. You've often heard that Rocket is peppery and have often been disappointed when you tasted it. You won't be disappointed with the flavour of Mairtin’s island grown variety. And another one to watch out for is their Thai Basil - unbeatable flavours and aromas (top right in photo).

And it is not just salads. The farm also do flowers, tomatoes, asparagus and other vegetables, all grown using natural methods (earthworms play a major role!). Check the farm out on Facebook above or on their website here.
