Market Update for Tuesday 28 June 2022

By Brett,

In Vegetable and Salad lines:

  • Iceberg Lettuce, Oak Lettuces and Rocket are unavailable due to supply and quality issues. Baby Cos Lettuce are available again.
  • Baby Spinach supply has improved.
  • Most other Vegetable and Salad lines are good but supply is tight. Green vegetables, salad lines and herbs are very expensive.

The best seasonal vegetable and salad items are:

  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet Potato
  • Brushed (Dirty) Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Avocados
  • Baby Spinach

In Fruit,

  • Pineapples, Rockmelons, Honeydew melons and Papaya are all nice.
  • Seedless Watermelon is good too. Due to food safety regulations, we can only supply whole watermelons (sorry, no cut watermelon).
  • Navel Oranges are in season. Lemons, Limes and Ruby Grapefruit are good too.
  • Gala, Jazz, Pink Lady and Granny Smith Apples are all very good. Kanzi Apples are nice and have been added to our list. Store apples covered in the fridge to keep them crisp.
  • Bananas are good.
  • Nashi Pears have started. Packham and Beurre Bosc Pears are in season too.
  • Imperial Mandarins are nice. Fruit from the southern states has started.
  • New Zealand Kiwifruit and Kiwi Gold have started.
