Brisbane Produce Report – 10 May 2024

Spoil Mum this weekend with delicious home cooking made from fresh produce from your local fruit and veg shop. We’re seeing great quality winter fruit and vegetables making their way through the Brisbane Markets, perfect for a family feast this Mother’s Day.

Both Lebanese and Continental Cucumbers are in ample supply thanks to an overlap of growing seasons in the Lockyer Valley, Bundaberg, South Australia, and New South Wales. Quality is good, with crisp texture and bright green skin.

The Lockyer Valley is in full winter veg season now, which means there’s plenty of Cauliflower, Kent Pumpkin, Celery and Iceberg Lettuce all coming through the Markets at affordable prices. Impress Mum with this simple No Knead Roast Pumpkin and Rosemary Bread recipe.

You’ll start to see Hass Avocados replacing Shepards as the season has switched over. There are good quality Avos coming from Mareeba with North Queensland starting soon.

If you’d like a little heat as the weather gets cooler, Chilli from Bundaberg is plentiful, adding a spicy kick and flavour to your favourite dishes. Why not try this Roast Pork with Pineapple Chilli Salsa recipe?

Speaking of Pineapples, this summer fruit is still coming in from Yeppoon and Maryborough and is incredibly sweet. With a juicy texture and golden colour, it’s ideal for snacking, desserts or roast pork.

The Imperial Mandarin season is now in full swing, with this sweet citrus fruit coming into the Markets from Mundubbera and Gayndah. Mandarins are easy to peel and have a sweet, juicy flavour, perfect for lunchbox snacks.

Also in season are Victorian grown Apples and Pears. There are plenty of varieties available, all crisp and sweet, perfect for eating fresh or incorporating into desserts.
