This Week at the Market

20th February 2020

Hi there

I’m back from a wonderful two weeks camping in Central Otago where the sun shone hot and all was right with the world. My garden was a riot of silver beet, kale and herbs on my return but nevertheless I am mad keen to do a big shop at the market this weekend to stock up on stone fruit (of course), spuds, possibly jalapenos and other chillis if they’re in abundance and all those other seasonal vegetables like tomatoes, red onions, aubergine, capsicum oh the list goes on!!

Town is pumping and I love seeing the (very young looking) fresh faces of all the new students as they step out into their next big adventure.  With the arrival of the students the market is now entering into the busiest three months of the year. We love their energy and their environmental sense of responsibility. We are completely over single use cup (suc) usage at the market, single use anything really. How hard is it to assemble a small kit that covers all the bases before leaving the house. We here at the market are getting increasingly embarrassed by the number of suc(s) that are used each week at the market. Young people are showing us up and demanding that our throw away culture of entitlement is seen for what it is – selfish, short lived and ultimately letting our children down.

Farmers markets around the country are in an ideal space to model behaviours that protect the environment. At the moment there are some markets that are doing better than us on this front. We need your help to shine on this front. Be a conscious customer and be part of the change. 

We are now 5 years into our waste minimisation strategy at the market and have made significant progress on many fronts but like most things in life we need all the stakeholders to work together on this.

See you Saturday

Fresh Organic Fruit this Week at Otago Organics

Stripey Gravenstein.jpg

We still  have a great range of new Season’s Apples this week and also Damson Plums.

Peas Good Nonsuch - This very large apple is always in high demand. It is a classic cooking apple that cooks down into a fluffy puree, great for apple sauce or baking.

Akane – A classic cherry red apple. A smaller crisp juicy apple which is also good for drying.

Stripey Gravenstein – Another very old favourite, very juicy with a distinctive flavour ( looks ordinary but tastes great).

Damsons are a small fruit with vibrant dark blue skin and a strong, sour flavour, damsons  similar to plums and a member of the rose family. They have a large stone and are often juicy, but tend not be eaten raw due to the tartness of the flesh. They make very flavoursome jams and deserts and famously Damson Gin.  

Come and taste!
