Market Report 27th February

Five must have fruit and vegetables to eat this week;  thompson seedless green grapesshepard avocadosteagan blue plums, Sunnyridge strawberries and  local hand picked  beans

Thompson seedless green grapes are fantastic this week and are our produce of the week. Late February is the best time for local Mildura grapes. Crimson seedless are also tasting great.

Sunnyridge strawberries are great value and flavour this week. 

Local hand picked  beans are nice and fresh, try them in a cool roast pumpkin and cous cous salad. The fresh peas are the best I tasted on quite a while

William Pears are the first green skined pear harvested. These pears are really flavoursome and ripen very quickly. 

North Queensland shepard avocados are in store and online this week. I love shepards, they have a nice creamy flavour and they don't go brown once cut. Just remember, shepard avos don't turn brown on the skin, thet stay green. To tell if they're are ripe, gently press on the stem end, if it "gives" it's ripe. 

Teagan Blue are our plum of the week. Plums are fantastic value this week. 

Limes are very plentiful and great value. Local lemons are starting to be harvested in better quantaties, and the price should ease soon. 

Peachesnectarines and plums are all available, prices are good and tasting good.  Doncaster tomatoes are still tasting great.

Hass avocados continue to ripen well, but supply is very light and prices are higher. 

The royal gala apples are new season. Honey Gold mangoes are tasting great, Keitt mangoes are finishing. 

Local sweet corn is in season. 

All of the lettuce and salad mixes are really good quality at the moment, although iceberg lettuce is higher in price. The broccoli quality has improved, but in short supply. All of the herbs are available and the quality is good.

Local dried purple garlic is great. 

Continental and Lebanese cucumbers are good quality and price, qukes supply is patchy 

Brown and red onions are being harvested in South Australia. 

Organics

New season seedless green and flame grapes from the Mildura area have started and are eating really well.

The organic stonefruit season is starting to finish. Supply is patchy, but what we are getting is good. 

Organic tomatoes are plentiful and great value and flavour

Local organic sweet corn is great value and outstanding quality now

Organic broccoli, but expensive and broccolini is out of stock for the moment. 

Supply is only fair for Organic strawberries, but the quality is good.  

Organic Hass avocados have finished, but we have new season shepard avocados. Sweet potato supply is really inconsistent.  Organic celery and Organic hand picked beans are good. 

Organic herbs and spring onions are great at the moment. For salads,Iceberg is out of stock and cos lettuce is in short supply, but baby salad leaves and Organic lebanese cucumbers are great quality. 

New season Otway Red potatoes are in stock. These potatoes have that great new season flavour.  Valencia oranges are now available. Valencia oranges are juicy, a little more tart than navels and the season is spring/summer/autumn

All of the organic carrots ,brown onions, and jap and butternut pumpkin are also great at the moment.
