This Week at the Farmers Market

23rd April 2022

Hi there

Hopefully some of you are enjoying a change of scene with the school holidays, Uni & Polytech mid-terms or an extended Easter / Anzac week.  For everyone else, hopefully you are getting through ok. 

We have plenty of fruit & vegies back this weekend – the apples right now freshly picked are the best & such great prices & there should be plenty more options this weekend of everything.  Lots of brunch options to dine in again outside & some of our vendors have samples for you to try before you buy. 

We encourage mask use & respecting everyone’s space within the Market while we still have high cases in the region. 

For those of you who are stuck at home we have a few vendors that can deliver to your door during the weekGilberts Fine Foods, Ettrick Gardens, Waewae, Ronia & Pippi, Agreeable Nature Eggs, Blue Mountain Butchery, Tartan Sari, Dunford Grove, Evansdale Cheese, Oamaru Organics, Harbour Fish, Havoc Pork, Blueskin Bay Honey, Wild Dispensary, Judge Rock Wines, Hazelnut Estate, Matheson & Roberts, Whitestone Cheese, Breads & More, Dunedin Craft Distillery, Waitaki Orchard, Princes St Butchery & others.  All their contact details you can find on our website www.otagofarmersmarket.org.nz under vendors. 

Bring CASH as some of our vendors are cash only. 

Remember your keep cup, return jars & containers to keep the ReUse cycle loop working & bags for vegies & fruit.  All of our Ready-to-Eats are more than happy to fill your containers.

Vote for your favourite farmers market & vendor below if you haven’t already to go into the nationwide drawer to find the best in NZ!

Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market!  And please respect everyone’s space.   Take care of each other & thanks for supporting local where you can.  And I hope you are doing ok this week. 

Ngā mihi

Market Manager

 

This Week in the kitchen

I hope everyone had a great long weekend, and are looking forward to another! This week in the archives on our website I dug out two recipes that are sure to warm my flatmates and I up. Pumpkin soup is an unmatched meal during the Dunedin Autumn and I am looking forward to heading to Ettrick Garden's to pick up the ingredients. Bella - Assistant Manager

Stonehurst Gourmet Mushrooms & Herbs

Not sure where those weekends went when we were not at the OFM but we're back this Saturday with some 'warmth' for winter: 'Grandma Johnsons Hot Garlic Black Sauce' recipe originates - one is guessing - from around 1900 and from the taste they liked it hot back then! Made with Stonehurst home grown garlic.

Fresh (you can freeze) or pre-prepared horseradish - this is a limited supply!

Along with a range of living herbs and of course our dehydrated range of mushrooms which are great in casseroles and soups over the winter period. 

Kind regards, Kate
