Market Report 20th October

New season Valencia oranges are our produce of the week. This variety is seedless, very juicy and sweet for a valencia, and great value.

Local dried purple garlic has started. The bulbs are a little small, but the flavour makes up for the size. Our early season garlic is from Robinvale, near Mildura. 

You may have noticed that I have not been stocking stonefruit. USA stonefruit was available all winter, but I made a conscious decision not to sell it as Australia has an abundance of stonefruit from Spring to Autumn. Today we have started Northern NSW yellow and white peaches, yellow nectarines and Nectacots from Southern Queensland. These 3 stonefruit varieties are eating well, white nectarines and apricots will start soon. 

Australian asparagus is great tasting and value. Spring peas are local, fantastic and in season Ours are grown in Bairnsdale, Gippsland. Continental and Lebanese cucumbers quality and price are good, just in time for salads. Local snowpeas and sugarsnaps have started, the quality is great. 

Local strawberries are coming from the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. Due to the cool spring weather, the taste is great but the supply is a little short. The mangoes from the Northern Territory are still in reasonable short supply but are tasting great. We are stocking Extra large and medium size mangoes. Our blueberries are from Northern NSW, it's the peak season now and the flavour is great.

New season spring garlic from Swan Hill is in store. The stems on spring garlic are great for cooking as they are full of flavour and nutrients. Also instore are fresh shallots. These look like a spring onion, but with a small bulb. The flavour is sweeter and milder than spring onions. Spring means salad onions are now excellent. All of the herb quality is better and the bunches are bigger.

Blood orangesnavel orangeslemonsruby and yellow grapefruit are still in season. Limes are in short supply and dearer this week. Get in for your blood oranges, the season is finishing soon.

Broccoli, hand picked beansenglish spinach and cauliflower prices are great value. Zucchini supply is down and the price up.

Fennel and celeriac are still available.

Try kipfler potatoes in a salad. Washed potato growers are in between season and the potatoes are dearer. The Blue Moon potato harvesting is between areas and are unavailable for the next 2 weeks. With an outbreak of disease in the Northern Territory, watermelons are also dearer



Organic Hass avocados are great and the price is great value.

The season for Organic apples has finished. There maybe some apples come into market, but the supply will be inconsistent.


Sweet potato harvesting is between crops. They should be back in November


Organic mangoes and stonefruit will be starting very soon.
