Biggest news of the week by far…

Queensland stone fruit has started!

Peaches & nectarines are now instore signaling the approach of summer!

Berries and mangoes continue to my pick for your fruit baskets.

Raspberries were last weeks pick of the week, just beating out blueberries.

They both continue to be excellent eating.

As I mentioned a few weeks back, local strawbs are not too far away.

Lebanese cucumbers are even better priced than last week and all other spring veggies are very good quality too.
