It is back our much loved Market Basket.

This week’s market basket report is brought to you by Toms Superfruits:

Autumn is here, the leaves are starting to turn and so is what’s in season.

Fruit:

Apples are extremely rich in antioxidants, dietary fibre and not to mention they are versatile in recipes and absolutely delicious making them an Autumn favourite. Toms Superfruits are offering a great range of apples this season from sweet and crisp pink ladies to new season royal gala. The price of apples range from just $3.99 per kilo to $5.99 per kilo.

Plums are another favourite during the start of the cooler months as they’re only in season during Summer and Autumn. Plums are low in calories and high in fibre helping your bowel do its work. Selling for $7.99 per kilo you better get in quick before they finish up for the season.

Pears are packed full of vitamins and one of the most juicy, mouth-watering fruits on the Autumn market. Selling for an awesome price of only $2.99 per kilo. You’ll find a great Autumn fruit recipe at the bottom of the page.
