March Seasonal Update

March Seasonal Update

Mar 01, 2024

Can you believe that March is (somehow) upon us?!Ā šŸ˜†

The summer weather is still here, but with cooler days and nights just around the corner, the seasonal shift is going to begin.

What does that mean when it comes to the fruit & veg you'll be bringing home?? Let's check it out!


šŸŽĀ FruitĀ šŸ

We have been enjoying beautiful southern oranges, and we expect our local season to start mid-april! There are lots of local spray free lemons and limes available too.

We are in the tail end of blueberries for the season, but while they're still around make sure to pick some up! It's been a great year for berries and they are lovely and sweet.

Stone fruit isĀ tapering offĀ and grapes will finish up soon as well, so make the most of them while they're around! Watermelon will be finished up within the next couple of weeks.

There are heaps of bananas, papaya, and pears around for you to enjoy.

Avocados are still around and have been extra flavourful and creamy these past few weeks! Plus as a bonus, our local supply should start soon.

We are loving the new season apples. They've been particularly sweet and crunchy this year, so be sure to give them a try!Ā Ā 


šŸ„¦Ā VeggiesĀ šŸ„•

There are SO many beautiful vegetables coming into season, so let's lay them out.

Baby broccoli is back!! It's coming from down south and we are so excited to be able to offer it to you again.

Broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are also making a strong comeback. These brassicas love the cooler weather, so should be getting more abundant and delicious from here on out.

As usual, we've got heaps of beautiful leafy greensĀ available. This includes favourites such asĀ silverbeet, choi, baby spinach, rocket, cos lettuceĀ andĀ mixedĀ salad.

Unfortunately the kale has been a bit hit and miss lately. A combination of being weather affected and bug affected has been a challenge, but it should improve as things cool down.

We are enjoying some green cucumber from our southern friends, and some local lebanese cucumber as well. Both are excellent and available in abundance at the moment.

There are lots of capsicums around, and we're planning on having a few varieties available soon. There's also a heap of beautiful eggplant, beans, sweet corn, beetroot, zucchini, and incredible tomatoes available too!

Celery is still a little limited, but the volume should improve and price should level out as the season progresses.

We've got a heap of beautiful potatoes, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins coming your way!

The carrots are getting better, and the coloured purple and yellow carrots seem to be extra sweet at the moment. If you haven't given them a try yet, we highly recommend you do!

Last but not least, the ginger we're harvesting off our farm is gorgeousĀ and fresh. Just remember that when you have new ginger (where the skin is lighter in colour and softer), it needs to beĀ stored covered in the fridge.


As always,Ā if you have any questions about seasonal availability simply shoot us a message or ask our team at marketĀ šŸ˜ƒ
