IGA WEEKLY SPECIALS — 2kg POTATOES WHITE AND HEALTHSTYLE 150gm SALAD RANGE.
IGA Weekly Specials : White Seedless Grapes, P/P Avocadoes, 750gm PP Nectarines & 500gm Gourmet & Roma Tomatoes
SJ Fresh Specials:- Strawberry Tomatoes (pictured below) @ $1.80
PP Nectarines for the weekly special will be both white & yellow flesh. Strawberries will be up in price, volumes are a little light at the moment. Seedless Water Melon will be down in price, we have a little flush at present. PP 500g Plums are now available, price will be around $4-$4.50. Fresh Figs are starting to come into the marketplace so we’ve activated them on the order form but arrivals have been a bit hit & miss so bear with us as you might not receive them until the next market.
Avocado update:- as requested by a few stores we have amended the order form slightly. You can now order green (which means they’ve been gassed & should start to colour in 2-3 days) OR half – 3/4 colour which means they’re approx 2-3 days to full ripeness. However avocado ripening is not an exact science, the greener option is pretty much always available as the market agents don’t like to have too much riper fruit on hand & the half-3/4 colour option may vary slightly depending on numbers.
Gift Pack ‘Chosen One’ Nectarines (pictured below) are available $24 per carton – these have been developed over the past few years to maximise taste & flavour (and believe us they are sensational).
Everything else is pretty much the same.
