A Better Choice For Freshness

It’s officially the last week before Christmas! As the year wraps up and the holidays are upon us, it’s a great time to support your local fruit and veg shop. With a wide variety of Summer produce on offer and festive feasting to prepare for, there’s inspiration everywhere this week. Be sure to pick up something special for you and the family this week and delight in the wonderful seasonal produce from Australian growers. The recent weather has impacted some growers over the last few weeks, so be mindful of ranging prices in the coming weeks as supply changes. 

Nectarines are our pick of the week. With both white-fleshed and yellow-fleshed varieties available, nectarines are a great option for a healthy snack, or for adding to salads or smoothies this summer! Our Pan-roasted Trout with Nectarine and Parsley Salsa is a great option for your summer entertaining that is tasty and refreshing. 

Melons are plentiful now with a wide variety available including Rockmelon, Watermelon and Honeydew melon. Melons are a wonderfully refreshing snack, and they can be used in a variety of creative ways. If you’ve got a special occasion like a birthday coming up, this Watermelon Cake is a lot of fun to put together, and just as fun to eat! 

Pick up some Limes this week and add some zing to your summer meals! Limes are great for adding a burst of flavour to anything from salads to sweets to drinks! These Ginger and Lime Coolers are a summer essential bound to quench your thirst on a hot summer’s day!

Berries are in good supply with a range available at your local fruit and veg shop. Look for Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries this week for some sweet little snacking sensations! Get in the festive spirit with these Santa Hat Brownies with seasonal Strawberries this week!

Summer is undoubtedly the best time for fresh Aussie-grown Tomatoes. The rich flavour of Tomatoes is a great addition to summer meals from a fresh homemade sandwich for lunch to a refreshing appetiser like this Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta!

What’s better than the unique crunch of Capsicum in your summer salads? Capsicum has a truly unique flavour that levels up your summer meals. Why not enjoy this Capsicum and Basil Frittata for an easy breakfast or lunch option to entertain this week. 

Mushrooms are a delicious option year-round, but are the perfect option for a summer BBQ! Mushrooms are great as a stand-alone option for a side-dish, but did you know you can add them to your mince for a boost of nutrients, too? These Beef and Mushroom Burgers are juicy and delicious, and are a great crowd-pleaser! 

Eggplant is a great option throughout summer. With a unique texture and delicious nutty flavour, Eggplant is a delicious addition to curries, stews, pies and dips. Pick up some Eggplant this week and make a delicious appetiser like these Stuffed Eggplant Fritters!

Remember to shop local this festive season, and enjoy seasonal produce from your local fruit and veg shop to support Aussie farmers. Shopping at your local fruit and veg shop gives you the best quality, freshness and service, it’s a better choice!
