Townsville's Largest Farmers Market - Fruit and Veg Shop Near You

It’s a great time to be shopping for fresh produce. With the cooler months setting in we’re seeing changing produce lines coming through the Brisbane Market and on the Lamberts Fresh Produce shelves. Find out what seasons are ending, exciting new lines starting, and what’s in full swing. 

We’re in the height of the Imperial Mandarin season, with sweet, juicy fruit coming in from regions throughout Queensland. Mandarins are easy to peel and a great source of vitamin C, making them a healthy snack. Victorian Pear season is now underway with juicy fruit readily available. Pears can be enjoyed on their own, with deserts, or for school..

Coming from the southern states, Victorian and New South Wales grown Navel Oranges are in season and good supply. As the weather turns cooler, this citrus fruit is a great source of vitamin C, fibre and potassium.

Lemons and Limes from North Queensland continue to be abundant in the markets, making for low prices in your local fruit and veg shop. These citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C and are great for adding a burst of freshness to both sweet and savoury recipes. Seedless Watermelon from North Queensland is currently abundant, featuring deep red, juicy flesh and a refreshing sweet taste.

Ashbern Strawberries from the Sunshine Coast are hitting the markets for the QLD season and will become more available in the next month

NQ Eggplant has finally begun to arrive and we are seeing stable prices on leafy greens like Bok Choy, grown throughout South East Queensland, and Baby Cos Lettuce grown in Stanthorpe is fresh and great eating.

The price of Broccoli has also come down with good quality local produce coming from Stanthorpe and Gatton.All apple varieties are now new season and are eating exceptionally well and perfect for snacks and lunch boxes. 

The old favourite Rhuburb is on the shelves and botanically speaking this is a vegetable. Did you know that? It is perfect in a crumble and also is good for general gut health.

Your local Lamberts Fresh Produce Market hand picks their produce from “Gunny” at the Brisbane Markets at Rocklea, which comes from thousands of Australian farms. He searches for the best quality, choice, freshness, and price available!
