16 Jan HOT, WILD & WINDY!
The weather continues to play havoc with the harvests along the east coast but we have worked our magic to bring you some fabulous specials this week. The corn (3 for $3.50) is so sweet and juicy and just begging for the BBQ. Throw the Zucchini (3 for $5) on and add some cumin spiced Eggplant (3 for $5) to boot. Gourmet Tomatoes (4 for $5), and Lebanese Cucumbers (10 for $5) with fresh Basil and Mini Cos (2 for $3.50) complete the picture.
The Summer fruits are spectacular. Our pick this week are Paradise Pears (also know as Sicilia Pears). These little nuggets of flavour are sold by the 500g bag and make the perfect lunchtime snack. We also have Tassie Red Cherries, 1/2 Seedless Watermelon, Blueberries, Bananas, Raspberries and Green Grapes all priced below.
- White Grapes (2 bags $15)
- Bananas (10 for $5)
- Red Cherries (500g for $9)
- Paradise Pears (new & seasonal) 500gms $7
- Watermelon 1/2 $9
