January Seasonal Update

January Seasonal Update

Jan 02, 2024

Happy New Year!!! Somehow (perhaps through a time warp?đŸ€”) it's already 2024. Summer is well and truly here, plus it's been raining heaps here on the Sunshine Coast. Let's look at what's in season and available this January 😆 


Summer fruit is here!! 🎉

We have some beautiful stone fruit available. Peaches, plums, and nectarines are juicy and delicious. Cherries have already had their turn over Christmas and are on the way out for the year.

Some juicy mangoes are available, and local mangoes will be ready soon!!!

Watermelons and grapes are abundant and incredibly flavourful this year. Most of our watermelons are coming off of our Woombye farm and we're loving them!

Avocados are nice and steady coming from down south. They're often arriving to us quite firm still, so be sure to buy ahead of time in anticipation of them needing a few days of ripening before eating.
We have heaps of beautiful blueberries still available, with strawberries and blackberries on the way out with the heat.
Kitchen staples like apples, bananas, oranges, and lemons are here and super tasty! Plus we've been able to source extra juicy local spray free limes for you as well.
Please note that availability of papaya will likely be affected by the recent weather events and cyclone in FNQ, so it may be a bit more challenging to access them for the next while.


As we move into summer, we've got heaps of beautiful leafy greens coming from down south for you. This includes your favourites such as silverbeet, curly kale, black kale, choi, baby spinach, rocket, cos lettuce and mixed salad.

Unfortunately cauliflower is out for the time being until things cool down in the south, and other winter loving brassicas such as broccoli and cabbage are still a bit limited too.

Tomatoes are now mostly being sourced from cooler areas, but we have a consistent supply and they're looking beautiful.

Pumpkins and potatoes are looking great and we'll continue to have a good supply of them. Sweet potatoes may slow down later in the season, but for now we have a heap available.

Carrots, onions, and zucchini are plentiful and delicious.

Cucumber, beans, capsicum and eggplant are looking and tasting delicious. These are all true summer crops and they tend to be at their best in the hotter months!


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