Heads Up!

Avocados – Now into new season, so the supply, while still comparatively limited, will only build from now onwards. Price has eased somewhat and will continue to do so as volumes improve over the next couple of months.

Curious Cropper Tomatoes – Have now finished for the season. We will endeavour to maintain a similar range of product through Winter, but there will definitely be some lines which we’ll have to wait for the Croppers to start again in November.

Telegraph Cucumbers – Supply beginning to improve so we should see some price relief this week.

Capsicums – Price has jumped up as the local season is close to finishing and we will be shifting to imports soon. Please note through this period of approx. 1-2 months, where we are reliant on imports, there is a strong possibility there may be periods of no supply, particularly on yellow and green.

Rocket & Wild Rocket – Supply will be tight this week.
