As mentioned elsewhere, berries and particularly premium berries, are very inexpensive and excellent eating. This is the week for berries. Blood oranges are still very good value and all citrus is eating fantastically. I am really enjoying my morning blood orange juice, mixed now with ruby grapefruit. Granny Smith apples are plentiful in this difficult apple year.
There are lots of very good vegetable options in store this week. Perhaps the most dramatic is the drastic reduction in the red capsicum price, actually below half last week’s price. We have a fantastic brushed potato special this week in all stores. Broccoli remains cheap and good as does celery, imperfect zucchini and iceberg lettuce. Cabbage and Chinese cabbage, spinach and English spinach and top-quality handpicked beans have also all eased in price. Soon, the spring flush of vegetables will commence, and food bills will fall - good news!
