This Week at the Market

12th September 2019

Hi there

This weather just cries out for gardening and what better place to buy your seedlings and get great advice than the farmers market. All of our plant vendors have interesting varieties that are grown for local conditions. I heard a wee rumour that Kakanui Produce will be back this weekend so you really will be spoilt for choice.

Last weekend we welcomed Abdal Catering to the market. Some of you may already be aware of Abdal and his impressive Syrian food, but for those of you yet to try it now is your opportunity. He does food to eat at the market and also to take home - read below for more information. His Syrian saj bread wraps are both delicious to eat and entertaining to watch being prepared.

Waewae Permaculture started last week at the market as well. They are a small scale market garden growing in Purakaunui using permaculture principles. They are spray free and grow a diverse range of salad and leafy vegetables. Check them out up on the platform next to Bennies Honey.

Afife from Lebanese Cuisine is taking a well-deserved break from the market and having a visit home to Lebanon. She will be back on 26th October.

Wild Smokehouse are also going through some significant changes and whilst that is all in process they will be absent from the market. Watch this space for future updates.

See you Saturday

Best Regards

Abdal Catering: 

Some of you may have already noticed some new & exciting dishes & products at the market last weekend.  We welcome Abdal Moneem-Kyassah who moved to Dunedin with his family two years ago as part of the United Nations refugee resettlement program. Originally a chef from Syria after working in Saudi Arabia & Malaysia. Abdal will bring his personality & delectable Syrian flatbreads (Saj), shatta, za'atar, cheeses & other wonderful delights to introduce to the market goers. He will be cooking at the market on a gas fired saj dome to make his flat breads fresh in the morning. He has his own catering business here in Dunedin. All his dry goods are purchased in Dunedin & his za'atar features a special ingredient which he was happy to discover in Otago. Realizing that Central Otago thyme was just like the thyme that grew in his homeland was a happy shock, now he regularly heads to Central in summer to forage for thyme. Abdal Catering shares chef Abdal’s love of Syrian food with the people of his new home, Dunedin. Enjoy the flavours of his delicious range of gourmet products including Abdal’s Za’atar and Abdal’s Shatta, you will find him between the good folk at GUD Coffee & Le Crepe.


Waewae Permaculture


Up on the platform you will now find the lovely Lian Redding & Fiona Collings who have a small scale market garden in Purakaunui which is spray free. They grow to permaculture principals with a diverse range of colourful vegetables including heirloom varieties.  Great to get a bit more produce variety for our market goers, their purple kale looked gorgeous!
