Market Report 27th January
It's back to school, back to work, but back to a bit more normality for most people this week
The royal gala apples are new season. Also started is new season Williams pears.
Moore Park Apricots are still available. All other Peaches, nectarines and plums are all available, prices are good and tasting good. Doncaster tomatoes are still tasting great. Donut peaches are finishing this week.
Local sweet corn has started and tasting great.
Raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are all available and the prices are reasonable. Unfortunately the Trentham raspberries have finished. We are now getting our raspberries from the Yarra Valley. Good strawberries are in light supply, there are plenty of inferior strawberries in the marketplace, but we won't stock them.
Local dried purple garlic is great.
Brown and red onions from Queensland are instore. These onions are rough looking on the outside, but have a great onion flavour. Look beneath the skin! I'd rather support local flavoursome queensland onions, than USA onions which may look better on the outside.
Hass avocados continue to ripen well, but supply is getting lighter for good large fruit. Valencia oranges are juicy and in season. If you happen to get a valencia orange with a green tinge, that's actually nature's way of sunscreen, the greening helps to prevent sunburn.
Organic Moodarra Blueberries are back in stock! We also have another line of organic blueberries from Victoria which are cheaper, but smaller than the moondarra ones. New season seedless green grapes have started.
The organic stonefruit quality is still good. Yellow peaches, yellow nectarines,Amber Jewel plums, apricots and Tasmanian cherries
Organic Bananas are great value and cheaper than conventional bananas.
Organic broccoli and broccolini are out of stock for the moment.
Supply is only fair for Organic strawberries, but the quality is good.
Organic Hass avocados are eating nice, but supply is getting lighter
Dutch cream potatoes and nicola potatoes are in stock. These potatoes have that great new season flavour. Otway Red Potatoes will be in store next week.
Valencia oranges are now available. Valencia oranges are juicy, a little more tart than navels and the season is spring/summer/autumn
Can we deliver to you?
