What’s Good at the Market this Week?
New season crunchy sweet Pink Lady apples are back – a very popular apple at Tanzo Apples.
Gary Miller will have a small supply of gourmet mushrooms –Lions Mane, some Shiitakes (not many) and white oysters.
Also great at the moment is Kale as well as supper new season silver beet. Autumn brings back stronger than ever beautiful nourishing varieties of kale and a whole range of silver beets. Last week Cecil Farm had a huge number of bunches of both that disappeared very quickly (photo below).
If you love kipflers and red foo potatoes then Jumping Red Ant is the vegies stall to visit.
Every week Spice Palace carries award winning olives, olive oils and dried olives from Grumpy Grandma – formerly Summerland Olive. Denyse and Alan Hodgson have set up their own company and have gathered a suite of well deserved awards from the National Table Olive Association and the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show and many more. So if you enjoy a fine olive visit Spice Palace this week.
