What’s NEW at the Market this Week?
Apple season has really arrived – first the Royal Galas and now Fuji apples are being picked at the Costanzo family farm. They arrive at the market this week. This medium-sized apple is slightly sweeter than other varieties and is great in salads, pies, sauces. It can also be frozen.
Black muscats are still being picked so enjoy them while they last (this may be their last week).
Also new this week at Three Sons Coffee Cartel is their NEW whole spiced freshly BREWED coconut chai. I can’t wait!
What’s GREAT this Week?
Who can resist the aroma of freshly picked and cut passion fruit? And when served with sliced bananas and cream on their own or on a pavlova – YUMMO! Everest Farm has both of these in abundance at the moment so it is the perfect time to enjoy them in your brekky bowl or for dessert or anytime throughout the day really

Have you ever tried substituting spiralized zucchini (spaghetti) for your usual type? When used with basil pesto – or any pesto really you can barely tell the difference. It is the perfect way to add more vegies to a reluctant vegie eaters meal Place it on a bed of lettuce with some olives and voila 😋
