December Seasonal Update

December Seasonal Update

Dec 01, 2023

December means school holidays, Christmas and of course summer is officially here!! Plus some of our favourite fruit will be more available over the next few weeks, just in time for the holidays. 😆


On Our Farms

These last few weeks our farm team has been busy prepping for summer! ☀️

This includes harvesting potatoes and ginger, plus some of the last soft leafy greens of the year. It's simply too hot in Queensland to grow them in the summer!

We're getting ready to rest some of the beds for a few months, and the cover crops will be planted soon.

Plus, our watermelons are coming along well and the first crop should be ready just in time for the holidays! 🍉 



Summer fruit is starting to arrive! 🎉🎉🎉

Early season peaches, nectarines and mangoes are starting to trickle through, and as the month progresses supply should be up.

Melons and grapes will be available near the end of the month or early in the new year. 

Avocados are in a transition to our southern supplier. There may be a slight interruption in availability but we will do our best to keep this to a minimum.
We have a limited supply of beautiful strawberries as well as blueberries and blackberries. They are juicy and sweet, absolutely perfect for adults and kids alike!
New season apples are due soon, so stay tuned! We're working with southern growers to keep our orange and lemon supply consistent. Limes should be back before Christmas.
Both papaya and bananas are happy and abundant with the summer weather and will be available for a long while yet. 



As the month progresses, celery from down south will start to be available.

As always, we've got a heap of leafy greens available. We're working with southern producers to keep this consistent over the summer! Some of the staples you can expect to see include silverbeet, curly kale, black kale, choi, baby spinach, rocket, cos lettuce and mixed salad.

Carrots, onions and zucchini are plentiful and delicious.

Tomatoes are still going strong and are extra sweet this time of year! They may finish up soon locally as it becomes too hot but we’re lucky to have some amazing growers further south where it’s a bit cooler.

Cucumber, beans, capsicum and eggplant are looking and tasting delicious, and these will continue to increase in supply as the summer heat rolls in.

Supply of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage will be limited for a few weeks. These are primarily winter veg so it's expected that availability is slightly down this time of year. Baby broccoli is finishing up until February or so.

There are of course still lots of yummy potatoes on offer! We've still one or two harvests of our Dutch Creams and Sebagos coming from our farm in Woombye, plus more coming from our other suppliers. 

Pumpkin and sweet potato are also in stable supply and ready for the Christmas table roast.


As always, if you have any questions about seasonal availability simply shoot us a message or ask our team at market 😃
