With so much mouthwatering produce in season right now, it really is a great time to be cooking at home and enjoying healthy, fresh snacks full of goodness.
Winter is the best time for Citrus Fruits, loaded with vitamin C, flavonoids and fibre - all available in good supply. Best sellers are Navel Oranges and Imperial Mandarins, which are now coming from the Southern States and taste amazing. Soft, juicy and sweet tasting Red Imperials as well as the sought-after Red Cara Cara (Blood) Oranges and zingy Finger Limes have also arrived to the shop and online store. Local Lemons and Limes, and delicious Ruby Grapefruits from southern states are all at their best right now.
Winter berries are here! Local Strawberry season has started and the cold, sunny weather will make them super-sweet! Packed with vitamins, fibre and antioxidants, they really make a great snack. Blueberries and Raspberries are firm, sweet little nutrient bombs not to be missed either. If the weather stays good, the berries will continue to get better in both taste and price.
Apples and Pears are in-season and now super crispy and crunchy. Prices are slightly on the higher side post drought and bushfires but let’s support our farmers, eat an apple a day and keep the doctor away, too!
Bananas are impacted by the cold weather and tend to have more green to grey (dull) coloured skin at the moment. Still eating beautifully as no taste was lost in the process!
This seasons Vegetables are fantastic value and taste so no better time to spend a little extra time in kitchen and enjoy healthy wholesome meals at home. We love Queensland vegies Cauliflower, Broccoli and Cabbages from Toowoomba - Darling Downs, and Waugh’s handpicked Gympie Beans and Snow Peas.
Excellent time for Cudgen Organics Fresh Peas from Northern NSW, as well as high-quality Capsicum and Sweet Corn from Northern QLD. Best value on all the essentials like Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Pumpkin, Spinach and Sweet Potatoes.
Stir-fries, vegie roasts, hearty vegetable soups, and winter salads are some of the best ways to consume what’s in season right now.
