Eat on the Green’s Craig Wilson champions local suppliers
As the harvests come in and the game season kicks off, autumn brings out the best in local produce. In the restaurant, as well as growing our own veg and herbs, we use some of the region’s best food producers. The quality, flavour and freshness is unrivalled.
Artisan products are so refreshingly different and have their own food story. Buying local makes sense in terms of food miles, but also in terms of quality. Two particular favourites are worth adding to your own shopping list.
The Veg Co (vegco.uk) produce some amazing sauces and jams, as well as growing chilies and tomatoes sustainably on their family farm near Ellon. Hungry Squirrel (feedthesquirrel.co.uk) make a delicious range of nut butters in Peterculter. You can find both at farmer’s markets and food fairs.
Eat local and enjoy it.
