Brisbane Produce Report – 5 April 2024

Make the most of fresh, in-season produce these school holidays to prepare healthy holiday treats with the kids. There’s fresh produce coming through the Brisbane Markets from local and interstate growers to ensure a wide selection is available at your local fruit and veg shop.

Our pick of the week is Pineapple, with an abundant supply coming from North, Central and Southeast Queensland, bringing prices down on this juicy tropical fruit.

Apples are in season, and you’ll find Gala, Pink Lady and Granny Smith Apples to be great eating from Stanthorpe and Victoria this week.

North Queensland grown citrus, such as Limes, Lemons and Grapefruit are also available at affordable prices. For a refreshing pick-me-up, keep a jug of fresh Lemon Iced Tea in the fridge.

The Mandarin season is starting and we’re seeing this fruit coming from Stanthorpe and Victoria. These easy-to-peel citrus are perfect for snacking on the go or adding to fruit salads for a burst of juicy goodness.

Dragonfruit from Bundaberg is a visually stunning fruit with a subtly sweet flavour. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, Dragonfruit is a healthy addition to any diet and can be enjoyed on its own or added to smoothies and desserts for a unique twist.

Pears from Victoria are in season, offering a sweet and slightly grainy texture. These fruits can be enjoyed fresh, poached, or baked into delicious desserts.

Shepard Avocado from North Queensland is in plentiful supply and well-priced. Creamy and buttery, Avocados are perfect for adding to salads, sandwiches, or even recipes like this Chocolate Avocado Mousse.

You’ll find great prices on Lockyer Valley grown Cucumber this week, perfect for salads, sandwiches, and snacking. With its high water content and crunchy texture, cucumber is a hydrating and nutritious choice.

Bundaberg is sending plenty of Zucchini through the Markets, making this healthy veg an affordable addition in grilling, sautéing, or baking. If you have an air fryer, you can even make these tasty Parmesan Thyme Zucchini Fries.
