It's definitely now hot soup weather isn't it, but the sun is forecast for the weekend & we will have lots of musicians playing over the morning with Philip Fleming on sax, The Maplewood Band, Daniel, Mike Smith and Jock & Mitch.
Congrat’s to Judge Rock Wines from Alexandra, winning a few more medals in the 2023 Aotearoa Organic Wine Awards last week. Two Golds for Judge Rock ‘The Verdict’ Port 2021 + Judge Rock Blanc De Noir “The Alibi” 2022. And three Silvers for Judge Rock Pet Nat “Guilty ”2021 + Judge Rock “Innocent” Rose 2022 & the Judge Rock Pinot Noir 2019. All of which I have enjoyed, they are top notch, and are really very, very good! You will find their supplies in the lower Market beside the ever popular La Crepe.

And borrow a keep cup from our cup library or coffee / chai vendors. If you want to BORROW A PLATE or CUTLERY for ready to eats just swing by the caravan for a clean one (& return back there for washing & steralizing), we also have bags you can borrow for produce or shopping too if you forget. We also are gearing up to have the Again Again Keep Cup system at the Market, more on that soon!
