This Week at the Farmers Market

18th December 2021

Hi there

market.jpg (1)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the last Market this Saturday before our Christmas Market on Friday 24th Dec – yikes!  Hope some of you have a relaxing holiday planned & have mapped out the Christmas shopping list & menu, I sort of half have, so far, but only just this week!  Christmas fruit mince tarts (Gilbert’s, Beano’s Bakery), Boxed Sets (Tartan Sari, Blueskin Bay Honey, No 8 Distillery, Port Larder, Dunford Grove & all), cherries, raspberries (Ettrick Gardens), fresh chillies (Kakanui Produce), gift wrapped olive oil panforte (Dunford Grove), peaches & nectarines (Rosedale Orchard), apricots (Earnscleugh Orchard), jersey benne potatoes, fresh farm peas in pod (Caithness Farm), Christmas baking, Otago Farmers Market Map tea towels, beeswax wraps & cards & Market gift vouchers (at the Market office at front gate) & plenty more are all popping up around the Market.  And of course cherries!  And how pretty are Dolce Vita’s Christmas cookies in the main banner photo above.

Also; it's your last chance to buy plants from the Market THIS weekend to plant out with all this rain or as gifts (as Youthgrow, Terracotta Plants & Waikouaiti Gardens have a few weeks break over Christmas).  

Our Christmas Market will be 8-11am FRIDAY 24th December this year (NOT on Saturday) & the following market is FRIDAY 31st Dec (8-11am)

Remember too, 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. 

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 please.  

Please bring your bags, cash, keep cup or mug, containers, return jars & mask up, scan in.  

Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market!  We look forward to seeing you all this weekend!  See you there.

Dunford Grove

Looking a bit like a light snow fall in the grove but it’s just spent flowers.  Job done for them now, we wait to see the fruit set next year.

Did you know?

Olives are wind pollinated and these flowers are very cleverly designed.  In light wind they create a vortex that draws the pollen into the flower’s centre.
