Good supplies of most veg are available again this week. Kumera, broccoli, zucchini, and caulies lead the charge - all top quality and all very well priced. Sydney stores have a great special on snackable carrots this week and also on green Shanghai Buk Choy.
Tomatoes are starting to ease as our farmers in Western Australia rushed to catch the higher prices that were on offer in the Eastern states. By next week, we will see them back closer to regular prices. Other bargains are to be found are in telegraph cucumbers, and celery which have been cheap for weeks now.
The fruit situation is largely unchanged from last week. The biggest difference I am seeing is an increased supply of green kiwi fruit. Gold kiwi now dominates this fruit, people love the sweetness of the fruit. However, there are customers who prefer the sharper taste of green and this is the week for both quality and price to buy them.
Citrus are all really good. There are now excellent oranges on our premium stacks in store. Lemons and mandarins are still cheap though Queensland Imperials are slowly increasing in price. With apples, we have a fantastic line of lunch box Kanzis at a great price. There's also a bargain price on our imperfect Packham pears, the fruit has a couple of small blemishes but are fantastic to eat.
