Another great weekend to be had by all at the market

23rd August 2018

Hi there

Kate has run away on holiday but we can't get too jealous seeing as we have had a blissfully mild winter and this weekend is looking to be a stunner! With our plant vendors back at the market its time to start thinking about your own planting, don't forget to use not only their seedling but all the knowledge they are happy to impart. 

In other news, as you may have heard we are working away to get a new site office and kitchen system at the market so we are looking to sell the current trailers:

The OFMT are seeking expressions of interest for the market kitchen and the site office. As is where is these trailers have been great assets to the farmers market but we are now almost ready to bring our new trailer to the market. The market kitchen is a fully warranted and registered mobile kitchen . It has a gas fridge, oven, hobs and hot water system. The site office is being sold as is where is. Both trailers will be sold unbranded. Please register your interest by 5th September. Both vehicles will be at the market, in use, over the next few weeks so go and check them out.


Can't wait to see all of you at the market!

New Improved Lemon, Ginger & Turmeric Kombucha

This week we have a new, improved Lemon, Ginger & Turmeric kombucha on offer. We've changed the base tea to result in a rounder flavour. Come and try some and let us know what you think.

Farmers Market Special

Our Farmers Market Special kombucha is Cherimoya and Cardamom. Cherimoyas, also known as Custard Apples, are native to the Andes, and were once described by Mark Twain as "deliciousness itself". We've combined them with cardamom on a green tea base for a sweet, light kombucha with a hint of spice.

We're Turning 2!!!

Next week marks two years since we started at the Otago Farmers Market, and we'll be rolling out some awesome birthday promotions to celebrate... Check back in next week's newsletter or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for details.

This week is all about maintenance on the irrigation.  Evette (the sheep) can be a little rough on these sprinklers!

Plus:  Apologies to those of you looking for EVOO re-fills.  The Market lock-up where we keep our stock is a little chilly and the oil solidifies, just a bit tricky to get out of the fusti!  I'll have great free flowing new season oil available at the market on the 1st of September. 

Did you know?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Can you cook with it?  Contrary to popular opinion, you can!

During cooking , fatty acids can oxidize. That is, they react with oxygen and become damaged.  It is mostly the double bonds in the fatty acid molecules that are responsible for this.

For this reason, saturated fats (no double bonds) are resistant to high heat, while polyunsaturated fats (many double bonds) are sensitive and become damaged.   It turns out that olive oil, which contains mostly monounsaturated fatty acids (only one double bond), is actually fairly resistant to high heat. In one study, researchers heated extra virgin olive oil to 180 degrees Celsius for 36 hours, the oil was undamaged.
