One Week Till Party Time!

22nd February 2018

Hi there


Summer is technically coming to an end and the weather has been letting us know that the last week. But I have faith that the NZ rule of "March is basically a part of Summer" holds true as I'm not quite ready to give it up! Not to mention I feel like I'm already running behind on my preserve making and I haven't even gotten to the crab apples yet.  

In the mean time though I hope everyone is getting excited for our birthday party planned for the 3rd of March, I know the vendors are, if you want to join in the fun why not share a story from your time at the market over the years or dress up on party day I promise you won't be alone! 

This Saturday will be the first week at the market for local Dunedin company Botanical Kitchen. Inspired by bringing herbal medicine and plant based foods to the every day kitchen, various seasonal tonics, elixirs, teas and plant based staples will be on offer each week. Find them up on the platform next to Tart Tin or check them out

Catch ya at the market!

Well, what a difference some rain makes!  Grass from brown to green in half a week.  Not so keen on the snow well down Mt Pisa behind us!


Did you know?

Round the bottom edge or under bottles and jars there's a bunch of numbers, one of these indicates how far below the cap the level should be for the bottle/jar to contain its specified volume.

This week has been cold (and wet!) in Central Otago.  The Black Krim Tomato have sulked with snow on the Pisa range and only 1.5kg of ripe tomatoes I simply don't have sufficient to justify a trip to Dunedin.  Apologies to all customers.
