New colours and flavours are hitting the shelves of your local fruit and veg shop this week. As school goes back this week, there are plenty of options to help fill your lunchbox and make eating your daily servings of fruit and veg easy!
Our pick of the week this week is Mushrooms. Available all year round, Mushrooms are a great option for you and your family. With such a wide variety of Mushrooms available at your local fruit and veg shop, you’re sure to find one you love! Mushrooms are versatile and can be eaten at any meal of the day.

Rockmelon is great value this week. The sweet flesh is great as a refreshing snack, and can be added to salads or charcuterie boards. Add Rockmelon to your breakfast with these Sweet Quinoa & Rockmelon Bowls.
Mangoes are bringing the smell of summer to your local fruit and veg shop. Mangoes are best enjoyed fresh as a snack, or make a delicious smoothie when blended together with your favourite fruits.
Spring is a wonderful time to enjoy fresh Rhubarb. Rhubarb is quite versatile and can be added to sweet or savoury meals. Pick up some Rhubarb this week and try this Springtime Ham with Rhubarb Sauce.
Pineapples are great quality now, and are a delicious tropical treat. While they are a controversial pizza topping, Pineapple does add sweetness to your savoury dishes like stir-fry or chicken parmigiana. If you’re after a refreshing drink, try this Mango & Pineapple Lemonade.
As the weather warms up, Tomatoes are of great quality. With several varieties available, there’s a tomato to suit everyone! Either tossed into a salad, or roasted into a tomato sauce for pasta or pizza. For a simple dish that highlights tomatoes and is easy to prep, try out this Cherry Tomato and Basil Tart this week, it’s a dish the whole family will love!
Broad Beans are in abundance this week, and are a great spring option. They are a great source of protein and are a lovely accompaniment to fish or added to pasta. Simply remove the beans from the pod and blanch to prepare!
Great quality Cucumber is available at your local fruit and veg shop this week. The refreshing flavour and crunchy texture of Cucumber make it a wonderful addition to salads or sandwiches, and they are the perfect vegetable to slice up and take on the go for lunch. Impress your guests this weekend with these Rockmelon, Cucumber & Prawn Cocktails!
Potatoes are a staple in every household, and no wonder why with endless ways to prepare and serve them. Typically a cold-weather food, we can’t go past a classic potato salad on a warm day to keep the family happy!
Your local Fruit and Veg shop hand select their produce from local Growers and Wholesalers to bring you the best quality available! Pick up some of this produce and more from your local Fruit and Veg shop this week!
