Townsville's one stop fresh shop

Perfect for the warmer weather, our pick of the week is Watermelon grown here in North Queensland. There is a great supply and fantastic prices on this sweet, juicy fruit. They’re great to just cut up and enjoy as is, but perfect in a smoothie in the morning.

Tis’ the season for juicy stone fruit and we’re certainly seeing that come through the Markets. White Nectarines from Swan Hill and Stanthorpe are great eating at the moment.

The Plums coming out of Stanthorpe are considerably sweeter than what you’d expect at this time of year. They’re tasty and so juicy they almost explode when you bite into them.

ApricotsWhite and Yellow Peaches from Victoria are fantastic eating and packed with vitamins A, C and K. When selecting stone fruit, choose fruit that are firm but have some ‘give’ when you gently squeeze them. 

Cavendish Bananas from North Queensland are back in season, with the supply increasing over the coming weeks which will bring prices down. Among other nutritional benefits, Bananas are known for being high in vitamins C, B6 and Potassium. We all know they’re great as a snack on the go, but have you ever tried Banana in a savoury dish.



You’ll find Iceberg Lettuce from Stanthorpe and Darling Downs in great supply, quality and price this week. Just in time for summer salads, look for round, firm heads when selecting lettuce.

Lo Bok, also known as White or Daikon Radish, adds a peppery kick to summer salads. This crunchy veg from South Australia is great eating and good value at the moment. The humble White Radish will surely add an extra element to your salads.

Coming in from Bundaberg, Continental Cucumbers are in abundance and priced to match, along with Lebanese Cucumber from Coffs Harbour and our local farmers.

There are currently overlapping growing regions producing Zucchini, with the North Queensland season just coming to an end and the Stanthorpe and Victorian seasons just starting, keeping this versatile vegetable affordable and in good supply. 

Victorian grown Asparagus is in season, great tasting and well-priced. Did you know that amongst vitamins A, C and iron, Asparagus is also a great source of chromium, a mineral that enhances blood sugar regulation? For something delicious and nutritious, try this Asparagus Cheese Bruschetta.

The fruit coming through now is very exciting this week as we’re seeing stone fruits in abundance and fantastic eating. Keep an eye out  for Yellow Peaches and White Nectarines from Victoria, and juicy Plums from Stanthorpe and Victoria. 

More and more Victorian and New South Wales grown Cherries are also coming through the market and they are plump, sweet and juicy this year. While they may be a traditional treat for your family at Christmas, Cherries can be eaten all summer long. 

Although the Sunshine Coast Strawberry season is slowing down, Stanthorpe, South Australian and Victorian growing regions are now picking. So you can add this healthy, tasty snack back to your shopping list.

Just in time for summer, there are plenty of Melons from our local farmers and they are particularly good eating at the moment.  They are super sweet and flavoursome. 

The seasons are changing, and as Spring turns to Summer we’re seeing new seasonal fruits coming through, as well as shifts in the growing regions of staple household vegetables. Find out what’s in season by following our local social media pages where you will find all the inspiration you need.
