Market Report

 

Sth Gippsland Free Range eggs continue to be a great hit. Simply request them via email or phone, or add them to your order on the web when placing an order online .

 

NEW SEASON APPLES ARE NOW ROLLING IN, STRAIGHT OFF THE ORCHARD AND INTO OUR FRUIT BOWLS. Sweet crunchy New Season Fuji, Royal Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Pink Lady Apples are all available. Make the most of fresh supplies as its right now they have their highest nutritional values, and are terrific eating, true flavoured apples.

 

Brocolli, Parsley Curly, Iceberg lettuce, beans , Cucumbers, Capsicums, Honeydew, Zuchinni, Corn, Strawberries, Tomatoes, including Roma and Cherry Tomatoes are all very scarce this week and with the winter weather closing in on us, prices will soon rise as these items struggle to keep up with the demand. As this happens each and every year, it shouldn't come as no surprise to any of us however, this is even more reason to eat in season value for money fruit and veg .

 

So, On a positive note , it is the perfect season for winter fruit and veg and prices on the following have decreased, quality has improved and their nutritional value and content is now at its peak. So we highly recommend the Imperial Mandarins, Navel Oranges, Crimson Seedless Grapes, Packham Pears, Lemons, Limes, Celery, Cauliflower, New Zealand grown Kiwi Fruit, Parsnips, Turnips, Leeks, and Cabbage. We are also very fortunate the banana crops are still groing strong despite the colder weather and supplies are higher than usual this week, which is keeping their price down.

 

Avocado is also highly recommended.They are coming from Western Australia this time of year, and may seem a little harder in body than normal. Rest assured, once the avocado is a half brown colour, it is ready for consumption, and will spread or cut easily enough despite its appearance.

 

Brussel Sprouts this year are proving to be much more popular than previous years. Perhaps they featured on one of the successful cooking shows on tv, I am not sure, however, I must say, they are quite a delicious vegetable, and packed with goodness.

 

Seedless watermelon is also terrific this week, and highly recommended.

 

Baby spinach , Wild Rocket and Salad Mix supplies are doing quite well this month, and proving to be a great hit amongst many households throughout Victoria. Feel free to order these lines with confidence, and enjoy a crisp gourmet salad this week.

 

Butternut Pumpkin supplies and quality have finally improved, and will feature in this weeks standard boxes. New Season Jap pumpkin has also reached the Market and again is highly recommended.
