Produce Update

Short supply alert! Recent floods in some states are causing damage to certain produce, resulting in short supply and higher prices.Lines affected include:

Tomatoes, Lettuce, Chillies, Onion, Red Capsicum, Broccoli.

Both white and red seedless grapes from Emerald are coming into season and prices will stabilise subject to weather and supply over the coming weeks.

Rockmelons and watermelons coming from Far North Queensland continue their excellent season and are available for a bargain if you’re trying to save some money leading into the festive season. These sub-tropical treats are great for juicing, smoothies, and snacks to help you beat the increasing heat and humidity.

With cabbage, shallots, beetroot and carrots in good supply, this is a great week for making coleslaw. Well-priced cucumbers, iceberg and cos lettuces are other market favourites, so team them up in kid-friendly salads or get creative with dips like Greek tzatziki or Indian raita. Cherry tomatoes continue to offer great value and mushrooms have also caught our eye this week, with good supplies of quality button mushrooms coming from Woodford and Swiss brown mushrooms arriving from South Australia

This week’s top pick is Hass avocado, which is great quality and abundant stock arriving from Western Australia and from Cabarlah. To test for ripeness, gently press the top of the avocado; also look for a purplish black colour. Store unripe avocados at room temperature, or to speed up the process, place avocados in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana for two to three days. Up the ante on your avo on toast by adding roasted cherry tomatoes, fetta, and basil, or fried chorizo and poached egg.
