new season blueberries in plant-based packaging

"Moondarra Blueberries are going to have new season, 125g fresh punnets this weekend at Gasworks, Boroondara (Saturday) and Kingston twilight (Sunday). We are launching 125g punnets in our new packaging which is 100% certified home compostable. Our aim is to have all our blueberry products in fully sustainable packaging made from plant-based, renewable resources by 2021."

direct from your farmers this week:
salad onions, valencia oranges, free-range hams

Punchy red onions: Day’s Walk Farm are harvesting their new season onions at the moment with their fresh green tops still attached!  Choose from magenta-coloured salad onions, shallots or pale “brown” onions at Coburg.

Summer oranges:  The summer-ready Valencia oranges from Kingfisher are full of juice now that the weather’s warming up.  Pick up a bag full at Coburg, Gasworks, Mt Eliza, Alphington or Eltham

Last minute ham: Jo Stritch from Happy Valley Free Range Pork will be at Coburg on Saturday.  Her free range ham on the bone is delicious and she may still have a few available for drop-in customers – it’s worth asking!
