This Week at the Farmers Market

12th February 2022

Hi there

1491BECA-E2E0-4CE5-9F08-130E2608DAB3.jpeg

Hope you have all kept warm & dry this week.  Valentines’ day is on Monday.  If you would like to sort something nice, you can find some wonderful ingredients to make a delicious meal or  purchase fresh free range eggs from Agreeable Nature to bake up a treat, or order or collect flowers from our fabulous flower growers. There’s always port or Rosé from Judge Rock (I had this with Christmas lunch & it was very nice!), or strawberries, or fantastic fresh olive oil from Dunford Grove (once tried you will realize the difference), Central Otago honey from Blueskin Bay Honey or Bennies HoneyCoko Lounge hot chocolate elixir packs, & I’m sure Dolce Vita, Gilbert's & Beano's will have something LOVEly & sweet to select for loved ones - be they family, friends or significant others!

Plenty of plums appearing this week including greengages & lots of fresh, fresh vegies.  And Simon at Rosedale Orchard has just informed me he has the first of the sweetcorn, yay, my summer feels complete now!

And a reminder that food & beverages are to be taken OUT of the Market to be consumed, as masks should be kept ON at all times.  Do your shop & then grab a coffee & brunch on the way out to takeaway (there's always the garden outside the Railway Building for a picnic).  Shop & go will also avoid any queuing & keep distancing safer in our outdoor Market so everyone can shop.

Remember, that only all our authenticated, verified Otago Farmers Market vendors are all within our gates, who have our tick of approval.  Make sure you support them inside the Market carpark & platform & you will get a quality product while you all respect 1mt distancing between each other & Market stalls. 

Remember your keep cup, return jars & containers.  Most of our vendors accept return jars & empty containers, etc from their products. Bring CASH as some of our vendors are cash only.

Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market!  Take care of each other & see you Saturday & as always, thanks for supporting local.
