This Week at the Farmers Market

20th August 2022

Hi there

Will be great to see Merrall back under the tree with his first hit of flowers – be in quick for these as only in limited supplies till spring. Rosedale Orchard have finished last week till the cherry season. Janefield’s will be back on the 27th August & Ettrick Gardens are back this week.  Good to see frost sweetened yams at Oamaru Organic's & Ettrick's.

Our Blue Mountain Butchery Masterclass as part of Dine Dunedin last weekend was a hit, thanks to those that stopped by, some for the whole morning.  Vaughn & Chef Amy had a great old time! 

For those of you who maybe isolating or homebound we have a few vendors that can deliver to your door during the weekBrightside Microgreens, Gilberts Fine Foods, Ettrick Gardens, Waewae, Ronia & Pippi, Agreeable Nature Eggs, Blue Mountain Butchery, Tartan Sari, Dunford Grove, Evansdale Cheese, Oamaru Organics, Port Larder, Harbour Fish, Havoc Pork, Blueskin Bay Honey, Wild Dispensary, Judge Rock Wines, Hazelnut Estate, Matheson & Roberts, Bennies Honey, Whitestone Cheese, NZ Nuts, Breads & More, Dunedin Craft Distillery, Princes St Butchery & others.  You can find their details in our ORDER NOW button on our website

Bring CASH as some of our vendors are cash only. Remember your keep cup / mug (if you forget, check with your beverage vendor if they have some spares to save on a single use throw out cups – which are just not cool!), containers, produce bag & your good selves.  Thanks to Cobb & Co for allowing us to use their steriliser, making it possible for us to provide safe, clean cups.

We encourage MASK USE at the Market.  Please respect everyone’s space.

Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market!  See you there.

This Week in the kitchen

This week I looked through the archives for a couple recipes that would make the most of the squash at the market. These recipes both look great, and I am excited to make them for dinner next week!

Our industry body, Olives New Zealand, is a mine of information and support.  This weeks on-line course was focused on flavoured oils.  Tasting oils are couriered out before the event and the Australian based head judge takes us through the program.

The opening introductions from the participants showed lots of new people coming into the local industry.  These events have a great “family” feel to them, all united in producing superb Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Did you know?

The little blue cups we use for tasting are to disguise the colour of the oil so we can just focus on our taste and smell senses.

See you this weekend on the platform.  Sandy
