Due to a number of factors including the disruption with transport due to Good Friday & Easter Monday not to mention our Children like to spend time with us over the long weekend : ) that we will not offer deliveries week starting the 2nd of April.
All will be back to normal for deliveries 9th April - 12th April.


  • As many of you are already aware....we are not delivering at all week starting Easter Monday. Each year, for the last few, we have taken this week off due to the disruption to transport with good Friday and Easter Monday....not to mention we work some pretty heavy hours on the weekends organising produce.... and our children like to spend the time with us. We wish you all a lovely long weekend filled with friends and feasts. For anyone ordering up this week to take you through until our return to deliveries (week starting Monday the 9th April) please add some Peak Fresh Bags to your order....they really are fantastic. So obviously we are delivering this week (Monday 26th - Thursday the 29th)...then not at all week starting Monday the 2nd April...then we will be back updating our website on Wednesday the 4th of April for deliveries starting Monday the 9th.
  • It's hard to believe considering the extremely hot days we have experienced over the last week that Winter is just around the corner ! Or is it....with the rain now falling around us ? Change of season is here again! I am always very careful with our stonefruit over the last few weeks with fear that we will run things that week too long, especially considering the new season Gala Apples & Pears are so fantastic....We are hanging onto Peaches as they are still at their prime and will be for another week or are the Plums - delicious! As we approach end of season, our choice on size of peaches becomes very limited, so please embrace larger fruit as a last hoorar! Of course, we do take any preferences on size into consideration....but if all we have is large for example, all we can supply is large : ) 
  • ...thinking of Plums, please keep in mind that an extremely hot day can turn rock hard fruit to ready to eat at lightning speed.
  • Valencia Oranges have certainly seen better days...and being off the trees for so long, we are now seeing some fairly spongy to the touch fruit - but don't judge a book by it's cover - flavour is still quite good. The good news is that Bonita and Les Darrow will begin to pick their early Navelina within the next few weeks....Aussie Kiwifruit and Imperial Mandarins aren't far off either !  
  • Crimson and Sultana Grapes have been excellent. Please keep in mind that tightly clustered varieties like Crimson present some soft/wrinkly grapes each season. It is really unusual that you are able to eat every single grape on a bunch, also as we move to the end of the grape season you may notice a few more grapes on the bunch that have begun to deteriorate. Check your bunch on arrival and remove any damaged grapes before storing in the fridge. Could I suggest pulling the grapes off the bunch on arrival and then storing in a airtight container in the fridge...this way the kids (big and small) can just pour them into a bowl without actually having to check out which are good or not so good...
  • Avocado prices are still outrageous.....with Hass still MIA. A big hole for so many of us! The Reed have been fantastic...but are extremely small for the price....Can I suggest 2nd Quality Reed - they are much better value. Fuerte also available this week from Patch Bros at a slightly better price point.  Remember, Fuerte do not change colour when ripe - so keep a hand on your fruit so you don't miss your opportunity. 
  • Dragonfruit, Cavendish Bananas, Mangosteens, Passionfruit (although pretty wrinkly), Strawberries, Blueberries (although the end of season is approaching), Pears - all varieties, Lemons, Limes and Rockmelon (our Rockmelon are not affected by any bacteria problems) were great this week.
  • Considering the downpour our local growers have experienced over the last few days I would like to pre-warn everyone about the likelihood of our locally grown lettuce being a little dirtier than usual. Remember it is best to wash any soft greens just before use....but all should be inspected on arrival for any damaged leaves which should be removed before storing in the fridge. Joe's pick in the lettuce this week is Mini Cos.  
  • It is approaching that time again when the Allium Family are thinking about growing again....Don't let these signs of 'coming to life' put you off.... simply cut up shoot and all ! Russian Garlic bulbs are now also beginning to split which may result in us sending you Cloves rather than whole bulbs. 
  • Bunched Beetroot, Asparagus, Red Capsicum, Radishes, Shallots, Parsnip, Pumpkin - Both Jap and Butternut, Beans, Carrots, Lebanese Cucumber, Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes, Fennel, Asian Greens and Zucchini have been great.  Dutch Carrots finally back on the list from Tim Burrell - Yeehah!
  • The Summer Cauliflower we have available at the moment from K Produce are a little rough around the edges, an off white to yellowy colour, a little rubbery and generally not as densely developed as the Winter Cauli's we love...The good news is they have a good flavour if you can get past the uninviting appearance. Only for those who can't be without. 
  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits! These are of a considerable cost to our business and can be used over and over again if treated with care. We also welcome the return of all other packaging material that may find it's way into your order, egg cartons, bubble wrap, etc. I know many are sceptical about the recycling of goods through local councils....but please be assured we deliver all of the packaging material we use (when the end of their life is upon us) into Sydney Markets where recycling is a big business.....Please leave all these goodies in your returning boxes out for our drivers to collect on your next delivery. 
  • Did you know we have Recipe Packages, also simply known as Meal Inspiration for those of us preparing dinner for the fam each evening...Head to our Meal Inspiration Page to find this week's selection of Recipe inspirations. We know you all have things in your pantry like Olive Oil so with our packages you can simply add the package to your cart and then delete any goodies you don't require. So simple !  

We have updated our website with the most up to date and accurate information available to us at this time, but due to many factors including that most of the produce is yet to be picked there is of course some uncertainty with our expected supply. The good news is that we have quite a few supply options available to us and so we may list a Grower on our site that does not end up supplying us goodies this week. Rest assured we only deal in Certified Organic Fruit and Veges - so any replacements we may supply to you from other Aussie Growers will also be grown in line with the National Organic Standard. You don't have to take our word for it... Lettuce Deliver is also a Certified Organic Retailer (NASAA Retailer R9291) which means that we have to be able to prove any claims we make a products organic status at a moment's notice : )

MILK many cases the Milk we offer you needs to be pre-ordered at our end a week in advance. Most of the time our guess- timates are spot on...but we have been caught out on the odd occasion. We do have a number of Dairy options available to us and so if we run short  on some varieties, we may look to others to fill the gap. If you would like us to supply ONLY the milk you have ordered or nothing at all, please make a note with your order.


We pick up all boxes that we deliver in and ask that you keep them clean and dry for a week so that we can swap them with the empty boxes when making your next delivery....If our drivers are not picking up your empty boxes please lettuce know. The Gel pack Iceblocks that we are supplying you are also a considerable cost to our business if they are not returned as are the poly boxes. Please leave out for collection with your next order. We will also collect any packaging material we may supply you including egg cartons, plastic boxes, bubble wrap etc. - simply leave inside your returning boxes.


As you know, we charge your credit card for your delivery total on the day of or day after your delivery. Please ensure that we have your up to date credit card details and that there are sufficient funds available on the day of your delivery for us to process your payment.
