MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

Strawberries and blueberries are starting to kick in from Sunny Queensland, great taste and quality. We are stocking organic strawberries and organic blueberries as well. However, raspberries are in hibernation mode this week, and they are little tight at the market, hopefully next week supply will increase.

New season blood oranges from NSW are cutting excellent, are red and juicy and full of vitamin C to boost your immune system. Cantaloupe are cheaper this week, sweet and refreshing flavour, can help you stay hydrated throughout the day, which is important for your heart health.

Imperial mandarins are finishing soon, grab them while they are still available. We have great specials on brussels sprouts, high in fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet.

Celeriac is a bargain too this weekend, give it a try if you have not tried them before. They are pretty special, as they have fantastic crunch and a super nutty, celery-like flavour that make them perfect for salads and slaws. Cooked, it takes on a slight sweetness that works well mashed, baked, roasted or boiled. New comer in store we have chard green, they are a cross between silverbeet and English spinach. They are leafy green vegetable packed with nutrients and a mild enough flavour that pairs nicely with a variety of dishes.

Organic bananas are once again on special this weekend, they are as cheap as conventional bananas. Other organic specials in store are organic lemons, organic car acara oranges, organic mandarins, organic broccoli, organic small carrots, organic leeks, organic beetroot, organic mini cauliflowers and organic petite tomatoes punnet, check them out.

WHAT'S NOT SO HOT

Unfortunately, a few lines are still affected by the growing conditions, and they are still in high demand with low supply, this generates higher prices than normal. Produce such as cucumbers, limes, organic tomatoes, organic cucumbers, organic capsicums, organic corn, organic celery and organic beans are still more expensive than normal.

Produce not available or in limited supply this week include organic curly kale, organic red kale, organic iceberg, organic radish and organic mint.
