Eating seasonally – Autumn
Rain and flooding in major growing regions and the unfortunate events in Ukraine affecting oil prices are leading to price increases and limited availability on some items says Maddison Pitt our Fruit & Veg Coordinator.
- Local growers have been struggling with rain damage but local produce should become more abundantly available in store come the end of April early May. Please support our Mountains growers when you see their produce in store or buy direct from their farm gates.
- As days are getting shorter and nights cooler, warming foods are becoming available. Think slow cooked root vegetables! Parsnips, turnips, swede, interesting variety of potato including midnight purple (delicious and completely purple), Kipfler and of course Dutch creams.
- There’s plenty of local garlic available from Rylstone and Megalong Valley to add flavour to dishes. You can also keep some to plant as it’s the perfect time to try some locally acclimatised garlic varieties.
- Fruit – pears and pomegranates are in store now. Custard apples and NT grown date varieties (super yummy and sell out fast!) will be available shortly.
- Broccoli and cabbages will be in short supply for a few months. And cauliflowers/greens are getting more expensive.
