November 20 In Season at the Market

Buying and eating in season produce is good for your nutrition and helps the economy, our seasonal updates are here to lend a hand.

Let us inspire you with just a few of the fresh, locally grown produce now in season at the South Australia Produce Market that you will find at your local fruit and veg store.


If you’re a lover of mushrooms, then you will love that these versatile veg are available all year round! Right now, South Aussie mushrooms are tasting fantastic – Button, Large BBQ, Portabella, Swiss  – it doesn’t matter, they’re all ready and waiting to be eaten. The Australian Mushroom Growers Association have been campaigning their Blend recipes – try mixing your mince meat with mushrooms and add some extra vitamins and flavour to your dinners. Who knows, when they’re tasting this good you might convert some stubborn mushroom-haters. Check out some of these great recipe ideas:


For those that have been waiting for the stone fruit season, wait no more because Riverland Peaches have arrived at the markets and headed to local fruit and veg stores. Not only do peaches taste fantastic, but they are also rich in Vitamin A and their skin full of fibre. If your peach is not ripe enough for eating leave it out on the kitchen bench – but if it is ready for eating and you have too many – remember to store them in the fridge.  And if you are after some inspiration, try this delicious peach donut recipe you will thank us for it!


There’s a good reason why Popeye loved his Spinach! It is an extremely healthy and beneficial leafy vegetable to add to your diet as it is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach packs a punch with copious amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and calcium. If you needed more convincing, Spinach is also very high in fibre which aids in good digestion. Spinach can be added to just about any meal from soups and salads to frittatas and curries!


Aussie Cherries are in supply from November through to the end of February and are the quintessential summer fruit.  You know Christmas is near when you find these shiny red bursts of goodness in your local fruit and veg store.  Not only are Cherries great tasting but you can also enjoy the health benefits as they are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, and fibre to name a few. Be sure to enjoy delicious cherries while in season.
