Market Update for Tuesday 19 June 2018

Posted on: June 19th, 2018 by Brett

In Vegetable and Salad lines;

  • Corn is expensive due to light supply. We have included pre-packed Corn in our product list which comes in packs of 3 (large) or 4 (smaller) corn cobs and is better value than loose corn.
  • We will continue our 1kg Vegetable Soup Pack throughout the winter. The pack contains carrot, parsnip, swede, onion, celery and sweet potato.
  • Telegraph Cucumbers are unavailable due to quality concerns. Lebanese Cucumbers are nice but pricey.
  • Most other vegetable and salad lines are good and prices are reasonable.

The best value vegetable and salad items are;

  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet Potato
  • Brushed or Chats (small white) Potatoes
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Green Capsicum
  • Avocadoes
  • Celery
  • Leeks
  • Regular Tomatoes
  • Fennel
  • Baby Bok Choy
