Market Report 4-11-2010

Grapes

USA Grapes are very short in supply. There are minimal quantities of Australian Grapes available.

Stonefruit

The quantities of stonefruit are slowly increasing. By the month’s end we should have good eating fruit.

Citrus

Orange supply is light. Pricing will stay high.

Avocados

New Zealand fruit will increase but prices will stay firm

Salad Vegies

Continental cucumbers will be good value. Lettuce quality will be a bit hit & miss due to the weather.

Tomatoes

Melons

Supply and quality of Rockmelon & Honeydew is still quite erratic out of NQ. We are starting to see some fruit from Chinchilla. Seedless Watermelon out of NT is starting to ease in quantity.

Cooking Veggies

We are starting to use Victorian Broccoli & Cauliflower. Brussels Sprouts & Leeks are very expensive & look like remaining that way in the near future.

Brushed Potatoes


Recent rain has upset South Qld production. North Qld (Atherton) supply has reduced as lower tableland growers have finished.

Washed Potatoes

Quite expensive at the moment out of Gatton (rain). South Australia is out of season at the moment.

Pumpkin

Has risen in price. Butternut to remain dear for a while.

Onions

Local Onions are starting in Browns. Salad Onions will stay with USA for the time being.
