IN SEASON NOW

Mangoes are our produce of the week this week. They are the Kensington Pride variety, grown in Northern Territory. Mango is a low-calorie fruit that is high in fibre, and a great source of vitamins A and C. With mangoes, you can create many dishes, such as curried chicken and mango salad, mango pudding, mango and passionfruit meringue, mango, pear and ginger crumble, just for a few ideas!

WHATS NEW

This week we have introduced Victorian strawberries which are very juicy and sweet. Stone fruits are also back in store! We are stocking white and yellow peaches, as well as white and yellow nectarines, grown in sunny Queensland. In addition, we have organic mini capsicums, very nice, crunchy and sweet, the perfect addition to your salads. Black Russian tomatoes are back in stock this week as well.

WHAT'S HOT

Mango is on our hot list, only $3.99 each with a nice blush colour - you can smell the aroma! This week asparagus is also great value, as is organic asparagus. Other specials include pink lady apples lunch box size, celery bunches, organic cantaloupe, organic broccoli, organic green cabbage and organic beetroot prepacks.

There will be more specials at the end of the week so stay tuned to us! If you haven’t already done so, subscribe to our weekly email.

WHAT'S NOT SO HOT

This week’s shortages include wombok, organic zucchini, organic beans and organic corn.  This is due to unpredictable harsh weather for our growers, which makes it difficult for them to harvest their crops. The conditions have resulted in very limited stock and higher price at the market. In saying this, we are trying our best, so we have enough supply for the week.

The good news is we have a plentiful supply of oranges, mandarins, lettuce, kale, fennel, broccoli, baby broccoli, salads leaves and sweet potatoes.
