IN SEASON NOW
This week we are doing organic Yellow Squash as our pick of the week. Squash is from the same family as pumpkin and zucchini. This small, sweet squash has a slightly flattened top and scalloped edge. Squash is an excellent source of vitamin C and B2 as well as containing dietary fibre. Select firm squash that are heavy for its size and has smooth, glossy skin. Store in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge for up to three days. Simply wash and cook whole, sliced or cut into wedges. They can be baked, sautéed and made into stews.

WHAT'S NOT SO HOT
The heat we had in January continues to affect some of our produce. Crops affected have been strawberries, beans, peas, snowpeas, sugarsnaps, as well as our delicate herbs which are very sensitive to hot weather. This generates very limited supply at the market and causes price increases. Our team is doing the best to supply enough stock during this hard growing condition for our growers.
The good news is there are lines that we have plentiful are excellent quality and of course good value, such as; plums, grapes, oranges, limes, cucumbers, lettuce, and potatoes.
