WHAT'S NOT SO HOT

The intermittent cold weather snaps the past few weeks continues to impact some produce. Crops that have been particularly affected are leeks, snowpeas, sugarsnaps, peas, sweet corn, organic tomatoes and organic celery.

This week the supply of organic bananas has shortened up. This generates limited supply at the market and results in price increases. Our team is doing their best to supply enough stock during these hard growing conditions that growers are experiencing.

Unfortunately strawberries and blueberries are limited this week, and price are higher than normal. Our Victorian Strawberries season is nearly ending and Queensland Strawberries are currently very limited in supply as they have just started to pick them.

The good news is there are lines that we have plentiful are excellent quality and of course good value, such as; bananas, kiwi, mandarins, broccoli, lettuce, kale, limes, fennel, Brussel sprouts, spinach and potatoes. Furthermore, conventional tomatoes are easing up and cheaper this week.
