30 Bananas a Day!

 

 

I'm not getting a great deal right now(ASDA is proving my cheapest option for organic bananas), there are no fruit shops nearby and i've tried contacting a few places who deliver but to no avail... If anyone can recommend any companies or has any tips it'd be greatly appreciated :)

I buy bananas in asda as well, but living on fruit in UK is quite hard

  Thanks for your response, I was hoping someone wouldn't say that but I guess it could be worse!

Thats like in UK. Only in few big cities where live asian communities you can find some local markets with cheap fruit. London, Birmingham, where else guys? Last oct-nov i was buying bags full of delicious mangos persimons outside Dalston Kingsland station. You know, we have to wait few months for next season..

I contacted by email couple of wholesellers too. No positive feedback. Really need to find good source of fruit in London. I guess you wont be lucky in York and have to rely on bad quality unripe (often) stuff in Asda.

I would be glad to share, split half case of fruit with you when i manage to buy-mangoes,bananas ect- in London or Birmingham. By the way i would visit again your beautiful York railway museum. I am railnut:)

Also try to contact Jack, I think he was ordering pretty cheap dates from somewhere or just up your cals with juice,  potatoes and rice, sometimes I eat dry packaged dates from wholefood store but they don´t taste that good

Tesco,  2kilo mangoes for £2.50.

used to have a deal on clementines, £1 a kilo, but they've since stopped it :(

It's convenient for me cause it's on my way to pretty much anywhere i go so i can go shopping on the return trip.

mangoes are usually unripe thou 

their are some groups for the uk: 811 UK ..and,

LFRV meet ups within the UK

:)

This is a good tip, I'm gonna try this at Leeds market next time we shop

Hi! Where is the outdoor market in Leeds?? 24 mangoes for £6 sounds amazing!

carls spot on with his advise. you can also go to fruit and veg wholesale markets, but you need to buy a traders pass. id start looking for most local sellers though. with the amont you'll be regularly be buying they always want to keep you happy. make your face known and buy, by the box! ;)

a great source for dates :)

Ok guys... I have been doing this for some time now in the UK....

Dates - James is right www.yaffa.co.uk is great. They are not organic but they are pesticide free I believe. The dates are huge medjools from here - they are wet, sticky and yummy to the tummy. You are also supporting palestinian farmers.

Alternatively for dates and all other organic fruit in London get down to New Covent Garden Market (Vauxhall) try Langridge Organics (they are used to fruitarians buying from them) or try Choice Organics in Hounslow. I order from both wholesalers and they deliver to most parts of London. I advise you though to GO AND PICK THE FRUIT YOURSELF or what you receive is hit and miss.

My latest purchase from the wholesaler was 3 boxes bananas, box of dates, box of passion fruit, pineapples, amelie mangos and cherimoyas... London may not be NY or the States but for a country that only produces apples and pears (slight exaggeration here) we are EXTREMELY spoilt for choice! Ive seen durian and all sorts here...

The only problem with buying in bulk especially if you are eating them yourself is that the ripening window can be very short. Bear this in mind - it is sometimes better to make a trip to the supermarket (yes Asda is cheapest for organic bananas) every 3/4 days for goods.

If you don't live in London then get to know your local greengrocer!

Also beware - due to the lack of sunlight the majority of the UK are Vit D deficient... so I recommend anyone from the UK to get their bloods taken...
