The Fresh Local Produce Market Report Delivered by Jaeger 14.3.17
Buying in season isn’t a month to month thing, it is driven by growing conditions every day. Each week I chat with our growers, view the weather forecast and scour the markets to find Sydney’s best produce; driven by quality, taste and value for the upcoming week.
These tips should help you in your weekly shop regardless if you buy from Delish Deliveries or not. Fresh produce should be purchased based on what’s growing the best in the local conditions. Generally, these items are also the best value for money as good conditions mean high yielding crops! We suggest using these tips to guide you through your weekly grocery shop. Sticking to a weekly shopping budget can be difficult with the temptation in your local supermarket, but buying seasonal produce will ensure better quality and more bang for your buck. Saving you time and money!
