One of my favourite pastimes is to get out and about with my camera at food markets and halls. This is one of the veg stalls at Borough Market in the heart of London. From this image you would think that everything is in season, sadly that’s not the case. I took this shot in December and the only in season produce I could find was carrots, cauliflower, cabbage and celeriac. I asked the stall holder where all the other fruit and veg came from and he said, lemons from Sicily. Green beans from Kenya. Asparagus from Peru and various tomatoes from Spain. I couldn’t help thinking “oh my god” all those food miles. Being in the heart of London as well the price of all this produce was extortionatly high. I know the stall holder has to make a living and I know a veg stall in London’s Borough Market is probably not cheap but it did make me think that I am blessed to live by the beach in Selsey on the south coast of England with fields all around me growing everything from potatoes to lettuce and there is a farm shop less than a mile away from me.
