Market Update for Tuesday 29 May 2018

Posted on: May 29th, 2018 by Brett

In Vegetable and Salad lines;

  • We have added pre-packed Corn to our product list which comes in a pack of 4 and is better value than loose corn.
  • We have also added a 1kg Vegetable Soup Pack to our list which contains carrot, parsnip, swede, onion, celery and sweet potato.
  • Most vegetable and salad lines are good but the cold snap has slowed supply and prices are generally stronger.

The best value vegetable and salad items are;

  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet Potato
  • Brushed Potatoes
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Green Capsicum
  • Avocadoes
  • Celery
  • Leeks
  • Fennel
  • Baby Bok Choy
  • Silverbeet Spinach
  • Salad Mixes and Hydro Lettuces

In Fruit;

  • Rockmelons, Honeydew and Watermelons are good but prices are firm.
  • Pineapples are nice and good value. Papaya is also nice.
  • Australian Navel Oranges have started. They are a bit tangy but nice fruit. Valencia (seconds) are still available in 3kg bags.
  • Ruby Grapefruit are in season and very good
  • Lemons and Limes are good. Lemons are cheaper.
  • Pink Lady, Gala, Red Delicious, Fuji and Granny Smith apples are all in season. Store apples covered in the fridge to keep them crisp.
  • Bananas are good and cheap at the moment.
  • Packham, Beurre Bosc and Nashi Pears are in season and nice.
  • Imperial Mandarins are in full swing and excellent.
  • Green Grapes have finished but Red Grapes are still available and nice.

  • Passionfruit are available again.
  • Quinces are in season and will be available for a few weeks.

Other Items,

  • Our local Hornsby Heights Honey supplier has run out for now so we have returned to sourcing Honey through the Markets.
