Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle all the Way

21st December 2017

Hi there


Woohoo Christmas is finally upon us. The market promises to have everything your heart desires for Christmas dinner and last minute gift ideas for the foodies in your life.

Market vouchers are a popular gift as are the 3 pack beeswax wraps. These are available from the site office. Vendors have created gift packs of olive oils, jams and relishes, Christmas mince pies, local chocolate … the list goes on.

Fresh produce will be abundant. Raspberries, strawberries, tay berries, export quality cherries, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, broad beans, zucchinis, new season garlic, new potatoes, salad greens and herbs including basil, snow peas, spring carrots and oodles more.

Fresh flowers will also be abundant, wonderful to festoon your Christmas table with.

We will be opening a little earlier on Saturday. Vendors will be in place by 6.30am with the public gaining access from then.

Cadburys carpark will not be available to us on 23rd December. They are having a big staff party the night before and the carpark will be used for packing out kit on Saturday. Fortunately we aren’t short of car parking around the market. The St Andrews St carpark over the railway lines is a huge space if you haven’t checked it out all ready.

We hope you like the new format newsletter. We have a new website as well. Please check it out. We love it.

Markets continue right throughout the holiday season. Produce will be abundant so be sure to come on down and stock up on the good things.

Here is a link to an interview I did on Otago Access Radio this morning with Jeff. It was lots of fun!

Finally from all of us here at the market we wish you all the best for the holiday season and good times with family and friends.


See you Saturday





This Week in the kitchen

We may not have a kitchen this week with all that joyful Christmas madness that will be upon us on Saturday, but I do have one classic recipe from the archives that might come in handy for those of you that like to partake in a Christmas or New Years ham.

Produce Bags

Remember to pick up your recycled net curtain produce bags from the site office. At this time of year with so many tasty fruit at the market there are too many reasons not to have some. We are asking for $2  for these so that we can continue to make more.

Also please remember to drop off your clean, undamaged super market bags to the site office. We re-cycle these throughout the market.


Otago Organics


As we have done every year, from now until 23 December we will be offering freshly cut Christmas Trees harvested from our property . Come and see what we have this week or tell us what you want and place an order for next week. All sizes can be catered for from big Atrium size to little petite ones. The smell of fresh cut pine will definitely get you in the Christmas mood.

See you on Saturday,

We hope that the Christmas build up is not bringing too much angst! 

If it is why not put a little oil on things to calm the waters?
Consider this tree, it had been producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil for about a thousand years before the Christmas celebrations even had reason to exist.
Maybe we should all just keep calm and carry on, as this magnificent old girl is!
