MARKET GOSS WITH TONY: July – August 2014

Well, hello strawberries! Now is the time to tackle the winter fruit blues and splash out on some beautiful, ruby red strawberries and other sweet berries, coming to us courtesy of sunny Queensland. Corella pears are pretty sweet too and their hard crunch make them the perfect rocket salad addition. Apple lovers have a plethora of varieties to choose from, but sadly, we must farewell the amazing Jazz apple. The Aussie season is over and we will not be stocking the nowhere near as nice New Zealand Jazz. Good old Aussie grown garlic is back in-store and that is always cause for celebration. It makes a big difference to your cooking. The cooler weather does tend to mean more expensive vegies, but at least we can enjoy Aussie grown garlic and berries while we wait out the winter!
