This week saw both blueberries and strawberries drop in price in the markets. Blueberries are available in increasing numbers this week. They're mostly coming down from Coffs Harbour in Northern NSW. The region has had it fair share of challenges with mother nature this year, hence the slower than usual start to the season, but it's rallying now.
This week blueberries have dropped in price, but more importantly fruit quality is great. The fruit is sweet, but firm and crisp - just the way we like them. Also this week, Queensland strawberries are the cheapest they have been so far this season. Fruit is still eating amazing.
The market continue to be well supplied with great quality vegetables. The excellent growing conditions have seen Sydney basin crops flourish and the quantities of leafy vegetables we're seeing are increasing weekly. This week we have coriander and shallots on a fantastic special in all HFM stores. The price of coriander price has fallen by over 75% and shallots have dropped more than 60% - both in a short period of time.
Thankfully no more bad news stories about lettuce as prices continue to drop and quality holds. Broccoli, broccolini, kale, eggplant, silverbeet, leeks, beans, kumera and imperfect zucchini are all in good supply at great eating quality.
Finally, the corn promotion we ran a couple of weeks ago was so well received we have decided to run it again – only at a cheaper price point!
