Fresh market update: Wednesday 6th November - Tuesday 12th November 2019

Spring Has Sprung

Goodbye Winter and hello Spring! It's time to enjoy the fresh, juicy and delicious fruit and vegetables that arrive in abundance at this time of year.


Cherries

Locally grown Cherry season has just started as we are seeing the first boxes arriving into the market this week grown from the Yarra Valley region. This beautiful dark fruit is a favourite around this time of year and will only improve in flavour and price as the season continues.

Apricots

South Australia is the first place where our Australian Apricots are grown and now are available to purchase. We are also expecting fruit from Swan Hill to arrive shortly which will lower pricing down just in time for Christmas.

Large Heirloom Tomatoes

Our local agent in the market, Kapris Bros have Tomato farms all over the country. Their South Australian farm is best known for growing some of the finest quality large heirloom Tomatoes. With vibrant colours and great size, they are a great addition to any dish. They can be purchased in 5kg trays.

Change over season

It’s that time of the growing season where we will start to source our product from different states to ensure the quality is at its greatest.

Red & Green Capsicums

Are still coming from Queensland, but we are seeing South Australian and even some Victoria capsicums in the market.

Zucchini

Queensland produce has now finished so we have made the move to purchasing out of the Mildura area. Shepparton produce should start within in a couple of weeks.

Lemons

With still some old season local Lemons around and some new season Queensland product coming into the market, we now have a choice of which is the best. Pricing for the Queensland Lemons might be a bit higher, but quality is considerably better and will have a longer shelf life.

Tomatoes

We are now seeing both South Australian and Queensland Tomatoes in the market this week. We will continue with the Queensland fruit for now as it remains better quality fruit. We are expecting our local Victorian grown Tomatoes to start in late December.
