Last deliveries of the year

Don't miss them!
 
Due to bad weather and poor fishing we will not be trading on Cupar's Fife Farmers Market tomorrow. It means that next week will be the last of the year to get very fresh local shellfish delivered to your home or food hub! Here are the days and places we will deliver (if the weather is fine for fishing...).
 
On Tuesday 18:
- delivery to our extended delivery area (KY1, KY2, KY5, KY6, KY7, KY8, KY9, KY10, KY14, KY15, KY16, DD6 + DD1, DD3, DD4, DD5), place your order on the website before noon on Monday 17
 
On Thursday 20:
- delivery to our extended delivery area, place your order on the website before noon on Wednesday 19
- delivery to Stirling NeighbourFood, place your order on their website before Tuesday 18 midnight
- delivery to Milngavie Food Hub, place your order on their website before noon on Wednesday 19 (and collect on Friday 21st)

You can also come collect your order at Bowhouse on the morning of Tuesday or Thursday.

Finally, we are sorry to say that due to the fishermen finishing fishing on the 20th, we will not be able to deliver shellfish closer to Christmas. We then recommend that you freeze the langoustines if you want to keep them for your Christmas dinner or New Year's Eve.

Bowhouse Christmas Market

Baby it's cold outside...
 
Don't miss out this weekend (9&10 December) at Bowhouse! Amongst more than 70 others fantastic food&drink&craft producers, we'll be there selling shellfish from the East Neuk! Weather conditions (storm Caroline is on its way...) mean that we might not have fresh langoustines to sell (nor lobsters or crabs, sorry) but we'll certainly have ready-to-eat portions of cooked (and hot!) langoustines, with sauce! And, because it's Christmas, we'll also have gift vouchers for those of you who prefer to put paper rather than shellfish under the Christmas tree (how wise! ). See you there!

The langoustines are on holidays...

...but lobsters and crabs are not!

Each year, around the month of May, in the Firth of Forth, fishermen see their daily catch of langoustines dropping to almost nothing in the trawl! This has to do with the life cycle of langoustines: during this period they tend to hide for longer time in their burrows, which makes them more difficult to catch. So fishermen often take advantage of this period to make repairs on their boats...
 
But this also means that we will not be offering langoustines during the month of May: even if some of them could be caught, when and how many is too unpredictable for taking orders... They should be back in June as, let's hope,  a nicer weather! In the meantime, why don't you try some lobsters or crabs? They are still around!

We are open!

And ready to take orders!

During the last 2 months, we have been preparing our premises in the Bowhouse, St. Monans, and putting final touches to the website.
