THE cost of veg­eta­bles is still a bit high be­cause of the wet and cold weather a few weeks ago. But peo­ple should see prices start to ease up in the next week or so.

How­ever, we don’t yet know what the ef­fect will be on the sup­ply from South Aus­tralia be­cause of re­cent flood­ing and rain.

For most fruit and veg­eta­bles, avail­abil­ity and price is de­pen­dent on weather con­di­tions.

Bananas re­main a sta­ple for many fam­i­lies as snacks and con­tinue to be a good buy. The bananas we get here have come down from North Queens­land.

The fruit may be green when its picked but this does not im­pact on the qual­ity of what you’re putting in your mouth.

While some peo­ple like to buy bananas ready to eat straight away, I pre­fer to get them green and let them ripen in a bowl on the kitchen bench.

BANANAS Cost: $2.50-$2.90 per kg
