Pezzano Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Market Report : 15 – 21 October 2018

CAUTION: PRODUCT ALERT

Royal Blue Potatoes, The supply situation on Blue potatoes has become critical with grower still trying to recover from the very wet winter, large potatoes are almost nonexistence with most growers supplying only med to small into merchants. Prices have increased considerably in the last three weeks with no real relief expected until mid to late December. Please keep this in mind when setting your spring menus

Asparagus, The supply on the local season has improved considerably over the last week with Torbay Asparagus now in good supply. The texture and flavour of this Asparagus is some of the best in Australia, and with prices decreasing as more and more Asparagus hits the market, now is the time to include this on your spring menu. Remember this Asparagus is WA grown and is great raw, in a salad, grilled on the BBQ, steamed, or even lightly pan fried with garlic and olive oil.

Artichokes, Local Artichokes are in good supply and well-priced so for those of you who have tried these you will know nothing beats the locally grown Artichokes.

Beets, Nothing beats the vibrant colours of our grower direct spring baby Beetroots with Golden, Bullseye and Bulls blood now in good supply. You may order these with confidence, again another great line to add into your spring menu.

Tomatoes, With our Carnarvon fruit now coming to the end of the season, supply has tightened up considerably this week. Quality will also drop off as growers pick the last of their crops, we don’t see any relief on price until the Geraldton season picks up in supply. Expect to pay more for all types of Tomatoes over the next two to three weeks.

Limes, Supply of Limes continues to be a problem with the Queensland Lime season now coming out of winter fruit, the summer Lime season starts again in January and we expect Lime prices to remain high until late November.

Mushrooms, Demand for Mushrooms Australia wide has seen prices continue to remain high over the last few months. We are hoping that once growers get warmer conditions supply will pick up and prices will decrease. We will keep you all updated on this situation, as we do understand this line makes up a large proportion of your food costings on fruit & veg spend.
