The production of Samphire in Israel is low, due to a gap in the growing season for the majority of the crops this is causing shortages all over Europe so watch out!
Things should return back to normal soon - maybe try Sea Pursalane as a good alternative.

The UK season of Savoy Cabbage has come to an end, we will now be moving to either Portuguese or Spanish produce and the price will rise as a result.
Hispi cabbage is a great alternative...
