This week our produce of the week is broad beans. The broad beans, also known as the fava bean, is a member of the bean family that is native to the Mediterranean, North Africa, South and Southwest Asia. Our broad beans are grown in Mildura. Broad beans can be blended, with olive oil, garlic and lemon juice, to make a dip; served as a side, topped with fresh mint; or made into a salad with red onion, cherry tomatoes and basil.



This week we are having special on blueberries, only 3.99 per punnet! They are tasting very nice and perfect for this weather. Go grab some while they last!

Furthermore, we still continue stocking beautiful nice size Kensington Pride mangoes, which are nice and eating vey sweet.

Our seedless watermelons are cutting better and so is the taste. On the other hand, canteloupes have been very short at the market this week, due to the gap between crops, which causing more expensive price than normal.
