The market is in good shape this week with only some slight issues:
QLD: Extreme cold snap is affecting a few lines. Good quality but slow growth and delay picking of beans, corn, peas, medium strawberries, rocket, rockmelons, bananas and raspberries. So stock is in short supply driving a price rise.
VIC: Experiencing lots of rain all over the state which in turn is affecting rocket, broccoli, iceberg lettuce and celery crops.
