Thank you all so much for bearing with us as we chop and change the way we are delivering to you as we work around the Corona Virus and the strangeness that it has brought for all of us. 

We are now back to picking up all boxes (including cardboard) as well as all packaging material on a weekly basis

We will continue to follow all of the guidelines provided to us by the World Health Organisation aswell as our Government. 

Returned boxes and packaging material are being cleaned, stored and re-used in due course. Please let me assure everyone that we are taking the cleaning and storing process very seriously at our end to protect our own family (including staff) and yours (our extended Lettuce family). 

Take care everyone, 

Emma for Ben Slade and Cheryl & Bob Stuart

  • You know Winter is just around the corner when the Imperial Mandarins start. Don’t stock up – first pick is always so good for those of us who love mandi’s...but they will sweeten with each passing week and become easier to peel.... The first of the Navels and new season Ruby Grapefruit also starting this week from Mount Gayndah Eco Fruit. 

  • ...we will also start Aussie Kiwifruit this week. This is the third week they have been available and are no longer arriving like rocks. They are however a variety called Dexter which are really small and shrivel a little on ripening....so not the prettiest looking fruit. 

  • So here we are everyone, change of season is upon us yet again. We will run Grapes for the last time this week. 

  • Returning to the list this week is locally grown lettuce and Black Kale from Paul and Joe Cremona. 
  • Cos will take another week to size up so we will continue to look to Coolibah Herbs for supply until that time. 

  • Chinese Cabbage deserves a special mention coming from Allambee Organic Farm in Greenmount. Heads are a great size and quality fantastic. Not only is Chinese Cabbage a very versatile vegetable, it is low in calories, contains folic acid, vitamin B, C & K. Not sure what to do with a Chinese Cabbage.....Shred and add to your favourite salad, or make a salad with the Chinese Cabbage as the hero (shred cabbage very thin with julienned carrots, shallots and chillies then top with soy sauce, sesame oil and seasoning to taste - remember to put the dressing on when serving or the salad will become soggy). Shred and lightly cook in your stir fry. Shred and long cook in your stew. Shred and pan fry with ginger, veg stock and seasoning for a delicious side dish ....or simply google Chinese Cabbage Recipes...the possibilities are endless.

  • Stand outs in fruit this week include – Apples – all varieties from Forest Orchards, Persimmons from Fat Goose Fruits, Red Dragonfruit from Rosa Brunner, Cavendish Bananas and Limes from Boruca Farm. 

  • Valencia Oranges will remain on the list as they are still delicious – but they are approaching end of season and are starting to feel a little spongy. Refrigerate on arrival. 

  • ...Strawberries are still not lasting long coming from Victoria....Only for those who can't be without and even then make a 'use first item' at your end. 

  • Broccoli now available from Mount Whitestone in QLD. Keep in mind the first few weeks of QLD Broccoli are what we consider ‘fluffy’ due to the weather still be warm. Don’t let this put you off as the flavour is superb. Gary and Kathy always cut their broc with quite a lot of stem. Do not discard, potato peel the outer woody skin and then cut into pieces and cook as you would the flowerettes. Delicious. Mount Whitestone Cauli is not far off either. Woohoo! 

  • Stand outs in Veg this week include: Dutch Cream Potatoes, Broccolini – both Green and Purple, Tomatoes – although climbing in price, Leeks, Red Capsicum (still on grower special), Snowpeas, Cucumber – Lebanese and English, Jap  Pumpkin, Shallots, Carrots, Cherry Tomatoes – Petite in particular, Fennel, Radish, Herbs, Corn & Zucchini.

  • A quick note about the Second Quality offerings we have available on our site....from one week to another we have no idea how many will be available as the seconds are rejected from 1st quality produce.....so, please make a note with your order if you would like us to replace your order of Seconds with the first quality equivalent should the Seconds not be available.

  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! These 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, lettuce, strawberry and cherry tomato punnets aswell as spinach boxes, 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.....

  • 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, Australian Grown 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 about a products organic status at a moment's notice : )

PLEASE RETURN OUR BOXES 

Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! These 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, lettuce and spinach boxes, 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.  

MILK

...in 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.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

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.
