What’s fresh in June!

Did you know that you can buy produce grown, farmed and cooked by over 200 locals at Western Growers Fresh! When it’s local it’s fresher and has more nutrients and lasts longer.

LEEKS are plentiful this June and we are singing their praises!  As well as being delicious they have some excellent health benefits. Low in kilojoules, high in fibre and containing folate, iron, vitamin A, C, K & B6, copper and manganese. At just $1.99 each for lovely large leeks, see our recipe here for Leek, Potato and Bacon bake 

Leeks are often forgotten as an excellent side vegetable: simply slice and saute in olive oil and butter for about 10 mins, season with cracked pepper and WA Lake salt. Or cut in half and top with olive oil and a sprinkle of grated cheese and roast for 25 mins.  If you don’t feel like cooking, our Busselton chefs make a tasty Potato and Leek soup, which you can buy fresh in the shop.

There are several varieties of Apples in great supply at Western Growers Fresh. This week try a new variety, from a selection of Fuji, Kanzi, Pink Lady, Bravo, Royal Gala, Missiles Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and many more!

See our friendly team in the shop if you have any questions about our delicious local food. Don’t forget there are some super meal boxes to choose from online too!
