October 4 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.
South Australian grown white zucchinis are now coming into supply and on the floor at the South Australian Produce Market. Half the size of a green zucchini, the flavour is very similar however the skin is where the difference is found being much thinner. Great for stuffing – try them in your basket this week.
Grown in the northern Adelaide plains, this vegetable does not have to travel far before landing on the plates of metro Adelaide families. We grow some amazing cauliflower in South Australia and now is a great time to add it to the menu. If you have never tried cauliflower mash – you will be surprised how great a substitute or change this is from the standard potato staple. Mash up the cauliflower and add some olive oil, salt and pepper and let your tastebuds enjoy!
If you’re into natural immunity boosters, you’ll be pleased to hear Navel Oranges are still in season. This citrus variety are packed with vitamin C, which helps the body produce white blood cells and improves their ability to fight off infections.
This week at the markets we are still seeing great coloured, flavour-packed lemons. We all know that freshly squeezed lemon in our drinking water has great health benefits – but we always forget to do it! Here is a friendly reminder to grab some fresh lemons this week and give yourself a boost with a glass or two of lemon water. And what better time to do it than when they are being freshly picked from the tree!
