What’s in season…
Stonefruit is in full swing now and locally grown apricots have joined nectarines and peaches from the Gingin and Beermullah areas at the Northern Valleys Locavore Store.
New season olives and oilve oil is now available, and you can taste the difference between the varieties at the store.
Moora Citrus Midknight oranges and Quin Brook lemons are in too.
Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are all being grown locally. If you havent tried the blackberries from Berry Sweet, I urge you to try some! They are amazing.
Silverbeet, spinach, squash and kale are in season and great in stir frys! We had some beautiful basil in the store from Temple of the Vegetable last week which i made into a fresh pesto – the tastes of summer are here!
We are looking forward to melons and grapes – can’t wait!
& What’s NOT
If you are seeing grapes in the shops beware – they are imported – most likely from the USA. Sadly sugar snap peas, snow peas, broccoli and cauliflower are also finishing up as the warm weather hits.
