The Meyer lemon is a citrus fruit, native to China, thought to be a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin orange or sweet orange. If you like the tang of lemons, but not the pucker, Meyer lemons are for you. They are not nearly as tart as regular lemons, and their peel is slightly sweet. We’ve had them at our Eveleigh stall for a couple of weeks now, and try to keep them separate from regular lemons – make sure you check the sign to get the right variety!

Vegetables: Beetroot, Broccoli, Kale- Tuscan ‘Cavalo Nero’, Leeks, cup & button mushrooms by the kg, Pumpkin (usually Jap, Butternut and Queensland Blue), Rhubarb, Shelling peas (which are becoming more and more popular, so we’ll try to bring more), shallots – both red and white hopefully, and tomatoes – punnets of cherry toms, and round tomatoes by the kg.
