This time of year is very busy for your local fruit and veg shop, and it’s an important time to be thankful for all the hard work that goes into providing the best quality fruit and veg to you and your community.
Our pick of the week this week is Mangoes! As growing regions overlap and the season continues, Mangoes are in excellent supply and are in great quality at your local fruit and veg shop. There’s nothing that quite compares to a fresh Mango on a hot summer day, eaten fresh or frozen and blended into a smoothie or ice cream. With Mangoes in such great supply, it’s a great time to stock up for all your sweet and savoury mango needs. For a simple and refreshing snack this weekend, try these Mango & Mint Rice Paper Rolls!
Strawberries are a great option this week, with the season continuing in southern regions. The fruit is sweet and good quality, perfect for an afternoon snack. Try our Labna with Roasted Strawberry, Honeycomb & Thyme for a light dessert this weekend that will impress the whole family!

Lychees are a delicious summer fruit, perfectly juicy and sweet with a boost of vitamin C and potassium! The lychee is ripe when the inedible outer skin turns from green to red or pink-red in colour. Want to save your lychees for future use? Once peeled, lychees can be frozen to use later!
