This report was updated on Wednesday 8th of July for deliveries 13th - 16th July 2020

Orders for delivery Monday - Thursday need to be placed no later than 11am Sunday.
For priority supply order by 6am Saturday.

Thank you all so much for bearing with us over the last few months as we chopped and changed the way we have been delivering to you as we worked around the Corona Virus and the strangeness that it brought for all of us.

We are now back to picking up all boxes (including cardboard) as well as all packaging material on a weekly basis. If the situation with COVID 19 changes we will re-look at this and make quick changes for the safety of all.

We will continue to follow all of the guidelines provided to us by the World Health Organisation aswell as our Government.

  • Returned boxes and packaging material are being cleaned, stored and re-used in due course. Please let me assure everyone that we are taking the cleaning and storing process very seriously at our end to protect our own family (including staff) and yours (our extended Lettuce family).

We are all still well....none of our family (including staff) have come into direct contact with any person carrying the virus and we are following strict procedures at our end to limit the chance that our team are exposed to the virus.

Our warehouse is still not open to the public at all and Couriers delivering stock to us are not coming inside our warehouse. We are following all of the guidelines provided to us by the World Health Organisation aswell as our Government to reduce any potential exposure to COVID-19.

Take care everyone,

Emma for Ben Slade and Cheryl & Bob Stuart

GROCERY SPECIAL:  Undivided Food - Broths - Beef, Chicken & Vegetable - 15% off all of July

Undivided Food Co. are taking Australia by storm with their affordable, attractive and damn tasty range of certified organic bone broths. Co-founders Tony and Janine, along with their chef Briar Macky, produce the range in their purpose built kitchen located in Lane Cove West, Sydney.


  • Generally speaking the fruit & veges we have on offer have been brilliant. Winter does usually produce some of the best produce of the year. Stand outs in fruit - Apples (Jonathon Apples still on grower special - $8.00 per kilo), Strawberries, Blueberries, Kiwifruit, Imperial Mandarins, Navel Oranges and Avocadoes. In the Veg - Carrots, Brussels Sprouts, Dutch Cream Potatoes, Jap Pumpkin, Celery, Zucchini, Cabbage - all varieties, Bok Choy, Corn, Sugar Snap Peas, Snowpeas, Sweet Potato, Rainbow Chard and Silverbeet.
  • Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower have all been brilliant and are in very good supply - hence amazing pricing! Make sure these are on your menu for the week.
  • Baby Spinach and Rocket punnets coming from Coolibah Herbs are now containing a little Winter grass...this really can't be helped in the cooler months. Know what to expect.
  • Winter is definitely upon us ....the cool weather resulting in produce across the country growing at a snail's pace..! Thankfully we have been co-operatively trading with our growers and suppliers for a period extending over 20 years and so we should not be without stock...but in saying that there can always be some gaps in supply. We have done our best to display the most up to date and accurate information about what will be available for next week deliveries...but it is Wednesday and there are quite a few days before produce will be picked and cut. End of June and July is notoriously problematic with supply....Please excuse us over the next few weeks if indications we have on size of produce is off the mark....or we supply you from a Grower that we do not have listed as supplying us on a particular week. Rest assured we only deal in CERTIFIED ORGANIC fresh produce....that is, produce that has been independently audited to ensure that it is grown in line with the National Standard for Organic Production. Lettuce Deliver is also independently audited to ensure we are only selling Certified Organic Produce. We are Certified with NASAA...and can produce an audit trail on all our produce at a moment's notice...in fact, we were audited this week - passed with flying colours of course : )  
  • Due to the cooler weather we are experiencing an egg and milk shortage. We will have enough of both in total numbers to supply all orders...but we may sub to a brand you have not ordered. If you are wanting the brand of eggs or milk you have ordered or nothing at all please advise. 
  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! These can be used over and over again if treated with care. We also welcome the return of all other packaging material that may find it's way into your order, egg cartons, bubble wrap, lettuce, strawberry and cherry tomato punnets aswell as spinach boxes, etc. I know many are sceptical about the recycling of goods through local councils....but please be assured we deliver all of the packaging material we use (when the end of their life is upon us) into Sydney Markets where recycling is a big business.....Please leave all these goodies in your returning boxes out for our drivers to collect on your next delivery. If our drivers are not picking up your boxes please lettuce know.
     
  • Did you know we have Recipe Packages, also simply known as Meal Inspiration for those of us preparing dinner for the fam each evening...Head to our Meal Inspiration Page to find this week's selection of Recipe inspirations. We know you all have things in your pantry like Olive Oil so with our packages you can simply add the package to your cart and then delete any goodies you don't require. So simple !  

We have updated our website with the most up to date and accurate information available to us at this time, but due to many factors including that most of the produce is yet to be picked there is of course some uncertainty with our expected supply. The good news is that we have quite a few supply options available to us and so we may list a Grower on our site that does not end up supplying us goodies this week. Rest assured we only deal in Certified Organic, Australian Grown Fruit and Veges - so any replacements we may supply to you from other Aussie Growers will also be grown in line with the National Organic Standard. You don't have to take our word for it... Lettuce Deliver is also a Certified Organic Retailer (NASAA Retailer R9291) which means that we have to be able to prove any claims we make about a products organic status at a moment's notice : )

PLEASE RETURN OUR BOXES 

Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! These can be used over and over again if treated with care. We also welcome the return of all other packaging material that may find it's way into your order, egg cartons, bubble wrap, lettuce and spinach boxes, etc. I know many are sceptical about the recycling of goods through local councils....but please be assured we deliver all of the packaging material we use (when the end of their life is upon us) into Sydney Markets where recycling is a big business.....Please leave all these goodies in your returning boxes out for our drivers to collect on your next delivery.  

MILK

...in many cases the Milk we offer you needs to be pre-ordered at our end a week in advance. Most of the time our guess- timates are spot on...but we have been caught out on the odd occasion. We do have a number of Dairy options available to us and so if we run short  on some varieties, we may look to others to fill the gap. If you would like us to supply ONLY the milk you have ordered or nothing at all, please make a note with your order.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

As you know, we charge your credit card for your delivery total on the day of or day after your delivery. Please ensure that we have your up to date credit card details and that there are sufficient funds available on the day of your delivery for us to process your payment.
