Market Update for Tuesday 24 March 2020

By Brett,

In Vegetable and Salad lines;

  • Chinese Cabbage, Baby Broccoli, Yellow Squash and English Spinach are not available.
  • Prices for most vegetable and salad lines are volatile due to inconsistent supply and very high demand. Please check our online shop or excel order form for prices. Custom orders are preferred (or a priority list for a mixed box) so that we can focus on sourcing and supplying your needs. While we will endeavor to fill all orders, limits and substitutions may be applied and some items excluded if they are not available on the day.
