    Not sure how they can sell at that price considering broccoli was 100$ a box last week at Sydney markets

    It might be old stock from the refrigeration? We get Chinese broccoli too. They are cheap, sold by the head, one dollar each. I usually get Australian even though they are about double to triple the price.

    Tomatoes $10 a whole box in some places. $100 a box for broccoli is nuts, even $10 a cauliflower is out there. These are dirt cheap in season usually.

    Yes $100 a box is nuts (16kg per box plus the ice so maybe 13-14kg of product) but that’s supply and demand. Broccoli and cauliflower just got wiped out with the last rain, prior to that we had zero water so only very experienced farmers got a crop in the ground. Let’s say that 20% of growers planted. 75% of the 20% got wiped brocs and cauli grow side by side. BTW cabbage is the same family, paying retail $10 ea :eek:
