This Week at the Farmers Market

10th June 2023

Hi there

Adam Ginger Fox Foods Pedal Power.jpg

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.

No.8 Distillery, Dolce Vita, Ettrick Gardens & Hazelnut Estate will be back NEXT weekend.  But Rodger is back, so Janefield’s will have plenty of salad greens this weekend.

For those of you who maybe isolating or homebound we have a few vendors that can deliver to your door during the weekBrightside Microgreens, Gilberts Fine Foods, Ettrick Gardens (vege boxes), Waewae Permaculture (vege boxes), Ronia & Pippi, Agreeable Nature Eggs, Blue Mountain Butchery, Tartan Sari, Dunford Grove, Evansdale Cheese, Oamaru Organics, Port Larder, Harbour Fish, Havoc Pork, Blueskin Bay Honey, Ginger Fox Foods Peanut Butter, Wild Dispensary, Judge Rock Wines, Hazelnut Estate, Matheson & Roberts, Bennies Honey, Whitestone Cheese, Waitaki Orchard, NZ Nuts, Breads & More, Dunedin Craft Distillery, Princes St Butchery & others.  You can find their details in the ORDER NOW button on our website or in the vendor profiles.

Bring CASH as some of our vendors are cash only.  And remember your containers, produce bags, jars, bottles, keep cup, etc look for the ReUse posters on vendors that accept packaging back.  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!

Please respect everyone’s space & feel free to wear your mask.

Thanks for your Market support, keep warm on these chilly winter mornings & we'll see you Saturday.  Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market!

Minus 6 overnight in Dunedin! Brrr. Winter is the perfect season for a warming curry. Our curry pastes are fantastic with meat, fish, veggies and pulses and add spice to soups and stews.
