How is the waste reduction going at your house? This Week at the Market....

11th July 2019

Hi there

BYO Kit Prize.jpg

Do you have a market kit? Produce bags, shopping bags, your own cup, containers for cheese, micro greens  and other products, your own plate and cutlery should you decide on a ready to eat item? Egg cartons to return, peanut butter jars to swap out, craft beer, olive oil and kombucha bottles to get refilled, glass jars with lids to give to The Port Larder to recycle.  The list goes on but the point I am making is that as a customer at the market you have a responsibility to use your own “everything”. So very many of you do this very well but it is a learnt behaviour which means that we can all learn to programme ourselves to remember our kit! Just sayin’

Check out the kit in the photo, now that is one well organised customer!

I’ve been back visiting vendors at their place of production recently. It really is a very satisfying part of my job to get out in the community and get to know the stories of our vendors more fully. I will be featuring them in newsletters to come so you can share in it all as well!

See you Saturday

Warmly Kate


This Week in the kitchen

 'Sweet Treats' – fruit, vegetables or eggs make great dessert base, from indulgent to raw/plant base, using fresh local ingredients gives great results & flavour.  We hope you enjoy these delights....

Barbara Phillipps

Barbara Phillipps, a champion of community and an early Chair of the Otago Farmers Market Trust, died in Dunedin on 2 July leaving her adopted city a wonderful legacy.  Today our Market, arguably New Zealand’s best, is secure but at the start it was just a fragile idea - to bring fresh local produce into town for direct sale to customers.  There was even a chorus of opposition. In those very early days it was Barbara’s quiet determination, her energy, and tireless hard work in bringing together a small team of other enthusiasts that made that vision a reality.  And it was Barbara who found for us today’s iconic Railway Station site.

A testament to the strength of that originating concept is that, despite changes in scale and personnel over the years, direct sale of fresh and local produce and food products remains a cornerstone of both the Trust’s Community Deed and the vendors Terms and Conditions to Trade.  

Even after illness took her from that lead role, Barbara Phillipps remained active at the Otago Farmers Market managing the volunteer roster for many years. 

Otago Farmers Market vendors and shoppers owe a lot to Barbara Phillipps for her efforts. But one thing is for sure, she loved every minute of it and like all of us, she really enjoyed the success of the market and its ongoing vitality and bright future.
