Spring Produce: What’s In Season

The sun’s out and spring is in the air. As the weather warms up, you may be wondering what fresh produce is available this season. 

Spring is a time of plenty in Queensland, with many tropical fruits and vegetables coming into season. When you buy seasonal produce, you are supporting local farmers and the community. 

Buying in season produce can bring you many benefits. Seasonal produce is:

  • Fresher
  • More flavoursome
  • Healthier and more nutritious
