The Great Sydney Lemon Crisis of 2019:

Sam Yilmaz, owner of Our Kebab and Pide on Oxford Street, said the lemon situation was “crazy”.

“Lemons are getting expensive, and people, I don’t know why, they know lemons are expensive, when they come they keep asking for lemons. They ask for lemon after lemon, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

But he said his shop was coping for now.

“We don’t use lemons that much. One box will last us maybe two weeks. It doesn’t really affect us. Maybe a fish shop is a different story. But some people, I don’t know why, but they keep asking for extra lemon, it drives me crazy.”
