The past couple of weeks have been terrible, and at this stage there is no sign of improvement. Prices are very high, quality is average and supply is very short.
All varieties are up in price – there are simply not enough to go around at the moment.
Have begun to rise in price this week. It’s too early to say how high price will go, but it is important to be aware.
All types are excellent at the moment. Have not seen Cardoons as of yet, and there is no word on when they might appear.
Expensive this week as supply is quite short. Hopefully this will improve.
Watermelon, Rockmelon and Honeydew have all come down in price this week.
Very expensive and short in supply. This should not be for long.
Still not completely in season.
Supply is very spasmodic due to some growing problems encountered by farmers. This will improve, but not straight away.
All are on track except for Basil which is now mainly from QLD and more expensive; and Shallots which are likely to be back to normal in a week or so.
Not many around.

Available without too many problems.
Nettles, Rappa, Kale, Broad Beans, Tuscan Cabbage & Rainbow Chard
