There are still strong volumes of cherries arriving at the markets this week, predominately from Orange in the central west of NSW. The two varieties featured are Lappins and sweet Georgias - both are magnificent eating and value.
Still plenty of blueberries around this week, but the pick this week are the organic blueberries. The fruit is coming from Tumbarumba on the edge of the Riverina, where the weather conditions have been a lot kinder for blues than some other the other growing regions. This week our organic blues are just the way we like them- firm, crunchy, and wonderfully sweet.
In stone fruit both nectarines and peaches are eating well but if I had to choose it would be hard to go past yellow peaches this week.
In mangoes, Honey Golds are the standout again.
The markets are still presenting great opportunities this week.
The weather has been perfect for Asian veg and in particular green Shanghai with crops flushing in both Sydney basin and Victoria. On special this week at $1 a bunch in all stores.
Shallots, kale, silverbeet, imperfect eggplant, imperfect zucchini and broccoli all represent excellent value this week.
The supply of truss tomatoes in the wholesale markets hasn’t slowed down at all this week. Retailing for under $2kg, truss are where the value is in the tomatoes category this week.
In snacking tomatoes, we have an old favourite - Sweet Delights - on special in all stores at a great price.
