Mark your calendars for our Harvest Celebration!

11th April 2019

Hi there

Cobb and Co logo.png

I want to give a huge shout out to Cobb and Co. Not only do they allow us to access their kitchen every Saturday to wash and sterilise the used cups from our coffee cup library (and believe me we make multiple trips to do this such is the popularity of this initiative!) but just recently they have willingly stepped into the breach to help us out with a pickle we found ourselves in. This again will be an ongoing help-out and is enabling us to keep maintaining our very high standards of waste minimisation and limit what goes into landfill. They ask for nothing in return and they make our lives at the market so much better so THANK YOU COBB AND CO!!!!!!!!

Harvest Celebration 2019 update below!

See you Saturday

Harvest Celebration 2019

Harvest Celebration Events Poster.png

We are super excited to be hosting our 4th annual Harvest Celebration!!

When - May 11th

Where - Northern Car park at the Farmers Market

What -

  • Juicing Apples - bring your own apples or buy some from a vendor and watch our european, hand made apple press turn them into sweet nectar to take home. Bring clean jars and bottles with lids.
  • Vendor costume party - have a giggle at the creations that our vendors come to light with!
  • Marvelous Marrows - get creative with the time honoured marrow and bring your creation along to the market on the day to be judged. Carve 'em, decorate 'em, make furniture out of them - we don't care but we will judge'em at 11am and the prizes will be worth your effort!
  • For the kids - animal, vegetable creations - enjoy creating a tableau or a one off favourite animal out of vegetables and /or fruit. Toothpicks are useful and you and your kids will have lots of fun playing around with the concept. Bring your masterpieces to the market to be showcased, both on the day and later in our newsletter and social media pages.
  • Community groups galore, from screen printing reusable bags, to heirloom fruit trees to what happens to all the coffee cups and compostables we collect at the market. Loads of information sharing about our local food scene and waste minimization here in Dunedin.
  • Music! - Melissa and the Dr ( are performing from 10am with Terry Ebeling creating a mellow sound from 8am.
  • Market Kitchen burgeoning with autumnal, harvest type food offerings. Ever had hot, spiced apple juice straight from the apple press? or pumpkin bread with apple butter? well you are in for some healthy, delicious, warming taste treats.

Put the date in your diary and be sure to get involved! Spread the word and show off our award winning market to some new comers!

See You there or be Square .. hey that's a thought, line dancing ....

Dunford Grove

april 11 olive branch.jpg

Dunford Grove:
Its been a bit crisp these past few mornings and we've woken to the whirring of the frost fans on the neighbouring vineyards. Traveling the district, every block seems to have large numbers of itinerant pickers and stacks of grey grape bins. Walking the grove this morning we found the first blush of colour on our Leccino, still many more sunshine hours needed before harvest.

Did you know?
All olives start green and mature to purple. When olives are harvested and made into oil when they are on the greener side, they tend to yield a smaller amount of intensely bitter and pungent oils, which is preferred by some oil aficionados. If we wait for the fruit to turn purple, we may get more mild and buttery oil, which some of us prefer, too.
