Fresh market update: Wednesday 19th - Tuesday 25th of February 2020

Produce update


Over the past few months, we have experienced irregular weather conditions that have not been seen in our growing regions in decades. Ranging from heat waves and fires to hail storm and flooding.

All this resulting in our produce getting affected in not only quality but pricing as well.

We strive to do our best to provide the best quality produce available. At times you may receive produce that is looking a bit tired or dull, but please be a shored that it is the best product around at this time.

Apples

This week we have seen the first harvest of local Royal Gala Apples coming from Harcourt. Other varieties will start to be picked in the coming weeks with Fuji next week and Pink Lady’s around the end of March

Pears

With Packham pears coming to a close we have now made the switch to the new local season William pears coming from Shepparton. They are great value this week.

Mandarins

Our market buyers have seen the first lot of new season Mandarins coming out of the USA. Quality is exceptional at the moment but pricing remains high due to air freight to get them to Australia. We are expecting local season to start in approximately four weeks.

Grapes

Menindee Grapes have now finished for the season, so we have now moved to our next variety of Thompson Seedless with the berries being very clean and large.

Broccoli/Cauliflower

This week we have seen large volume of both Broccoli and Cauliflower coming into the market which is great news for pricing as we have seen high pricing in these lines over the past few weeks.

Salad Onions

We have been informed that Salad Onions are now coming to the end of the season, supply will be very limited over the coming weeks.
