Your Produce Box FAQs

We keep it local, so everything is grown in WA. The majority of fresh fruit and vegetables are grown on family farms in and around Manjimup (WA’s southern forests region), some comes from Bridgetown (mainly summer stone fruit), and some from our great southern region.

From farm gate to your home averages 3 to 4 days, supermarkets can take up to 12 days!

Fruits that cannot be grown in our south, like bananas, come from Canarvon. The Gascoyne also provides us with select items when they are out of season down south.

Simply add what you want/need to your basket and follow instructions on payment when you are ready. Please note there is a small credit card charge on each order placed.

Your credit card is only charged once your order has been picked, packed and delivered by us to you.

We don’t have access to your card as it’s encrypted by a secure Australian payment platform called Pin Pay

There is a small delivery fee of $8.80 for eligible Perth suburbs – check the list on the Produce Box page.

Delivery to Bicton, Attadale, Alfred Cove, Myaree, Melville, Palmyra and East Fremantle is FREE.

NOTE: If you live in one of these seven suburbs you need to create a secure account so you aren’t charged for delivery. On your first order you will see the delivery charge, but don’t worry Anthony will remove this before he processes your payment. Then next time you order, simply Log In, shop and with a couple of clicks your groceries are sorted!

Yes, Matters of Tastes Collective subscribers receive a 5% discount on their shopping trolley contents via an online code. If you cannot find your code, let us know and we’ll make sure it finds you!

No. Simply order what you need, when you need it.

We’ll text as we drop off your produce. Your purchase is your responsibility once delivered, so it’s ideal if someone is home to accept the fresh produce (especially during the summer months). We deliver in a refrigerated vehicle and perishables are packed in reusable thermal bags with ice blocks to maintain low temperatures for a while (time is dependent on weather).

You can purchase a wooden crate that will be for your use exclusively. Our wooden crates are built in Manjimup from locally sourced sustainable pine; they’re then sanded and marked with your name. A reusable thermal cover is part of the package, which assists in keeping the produce in pristine condition.

Ideally you should have two crates, especially if you chose the delivery option. This allows you to return the empty crate upon delivery and we’ll bring it back full of fresh produce. OR return your crate to Bicton before Friday so we can pack your next order. Remember, your crate and cover are for your use only. 

Or you can place a deposit and have the use of a shared crate. Return any time and the deposit will be refunded.

We don’t use plastic liners when we pack! This is obviously a huge win for the environment and, when it comes to the condition of your produce, it will still arrive in pristine order. Let us know for some reason if it doesn’t!

If there is any delicate produce that needs to be bagged within the box, it’s supplied in fully compostable or paper bags.

The perishables are safely secured in reusable thermal bags to keep them cool. Please return along with the ice bricks and their re-useable covers. Thanks in advance for caring for our environment!

Now to work on ridding ourselves of those pesky plastic strawberry punnets! It just has to happen, doesn’t it. Meanwhile, recycle them in your yellow lid bin.

Yes, we’re very passionate about recycling. We can re-use the cardboard boxes, so please return the empty box either to Bicton, on pick-up, or leave it out where your box is to be delivered so we can collect it. Compostable bags and brown paper bags are used for some produce and both are compostable in your home bins. Plastic punnets (we are continually searching for eco-friendly and cost-effective alternatives) can be recycled in your yellow lid council bins. 

Yes! Each week, Tracey emails out a recipe to all who have placed an order.

As a professional chef and cooking teacher, she designs them herself using fresh seasonal produce. They’re delish and very cook-able! 

No need to worry! You’ll receive an informative email on Mondays as the online shop opens for orders. You’ll be kept up to date with seasonal changes in produce as well as reading about what’s new or special each week.

If you don’t open this email, you’ll receive it again on Tuesday. Finally, if you still haven’t got round to placing your order, Anthony texts around 7pm to remind you the shop is closing at 8pm.

See, we’ve got your back!

We adhere to all government directed protocols. 

If you would like contactless delivery or click and collect, please specify when placing you order and this can be arranged.

If you chose Click and Collect, when arriving at our Bicton property please come up the driveway. If we are not in the packing shed, please ring the bell and someone (usually Tracey) will come out.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any other concerns.
