18th April 2019

Hi there

We are celebrating in a truly eggs-travagant manner as we won the Outstanding Farmers Market Award 2019! Thank you for everyone who voted for us.

The market will be eggstraspecial this week and I know that most of you reading this will hippity hoppity along first thing to make sure you get your weekly supplies. Easter is such a wonderful holiday and the market has all your foodie needs covered.

The planning for the 4th annual Harvest Celebration is cracking along and we are eggscited to be taking some time to celebrate the season and the hard working vendors who make our market so eggsceptional. See below for some added information. Be sure to get your little ones geared up to make wonderful creatures from fruit and vegetables. You may wish to talk to your favourite vendors to see if they happen to have any really “ugly” specimens tucked away that you can use. This would kick start a superb creation!

Scramble your own creative eggergies and see what foams to the surface in our marrow makeovers. We are so looking forward to some eggscellent entries.

Now that I’ve eggspoilted my very limited Easter vocab to the max and fried your brains with silliness read on to get a sense of the market this week.

See you Saturday

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!

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.
