Just like a farmers’ market, Minifarms is all about supporting local farmers. This means we only serve you what’s local and what’s in season.
Now that spring has sprung, we welcome a new and exciting season of Aussie fruit and vegetables.
After the veggie-dominated winter months, this time of year is particularly fantastic for fruit.
We can finally say goodbye to oranges and mandarins, and welcome berries, melons, and – toward the end of spring – the beloved stone-fruit family returns!
It’s also time for leafy vegetables to shine, as kale, silver beet, and many Asian veggies thrive in the mild, spring weather.
Plus, the biggest spring veggie hero of them all, asparagus, makes a highly anticipated comeback.
You’ll also start to see great herbs re-emerging on the market, many of which had died off during the colder months.
There’s no better way to kickstart your digestive system after winter, than to turn this fresh, spring produce into healthy and delicious smoothies and juices.
Or, if you’re pressed for time, add a pre-made bottle to your cart – they’re perfect for on the go or to add to school lunchboxes.
Above all, it’s always important to resist the temptation to buy imported fruit and veg, when local farmers are working to grow delicious, fresh, seasonal produce on home soil.
While we can buy cherries, for example, in supermarkets all year round, if you eat locally and make sure that your dollar stays in the circular, Australian economy, that’s the best thing for our farmers – and for you.
When buying seasonal produce, you get a lot more bang for your buck. Not only is it the freshest and tastiest produce on the market, it’s the best value.
Keep an eye out for the Fire Icon in your Minifarms app to see what’s hot each week, and don’t forget to check the weekly specials in your WhatsApp chat to snag a bargain.
Help Minifarms to support local farmers by buying Australian seasonal produce this spring!
