The Summer Of Stone fruit
Christmas and summer in Townsville is also about stone fruit, and Lambert's range of Summer fruit is ripe, sweet and flavoursome. In-season produce like plums, peaches, nectarines, lychees and of course the go to in-season treat (and everyone's favourite) cherries.
Direct from the grower in Young NSW, Lamberts has a ten-year relationship with their cherry grower who delivers big, bold, sweet cherries (nothing smaller than 30mm) with some up to 34mm + in diameter. While we all await the food splendour that is the festive season, the thought of rummaging through shopping centres for hours on end and fighting off hoards of people while looking for the very best for the hungry brood can dampen one's festive cheer just slightly.
We provide a casual shopping experience where staff will help with your groceries with a smile and you will know that you have the best in fresh to put on the table for your family feast.
We have a wide customer base comprising of: Restaurants, Cafe’s, Clubs, Business, Hotels, Schools and Daycare Centers, Offices.
It is our intention to continue providing a wide range of produce to our growing customer-base, whilst maintaining a strong reputation for quality produce.
They're in peak season from November through April, which means now is the time to embrace these beauties for all their flavour and goodness as they are and in both sweet and savoury dishes.
Summer stone fruits are rich source of vitamins A, C and E and a good source of dietary fibre and potassium.
