This Week at the Farmers Market

24th July 2021

Hi there

There will be a great variety of vegies & fruit back this weekend & it's looking to be a sunny morning.  I’m looking forward to trying Tunanopal’s new Mexican winter Market menu which sounds fantastic, swapping a jar back for one of Marie’s fabulously addictive medium spiced kimchi, getting Gilbert’s great rye sourdough, a bottle swap of Holy Cow milk, Agreeable Nature Eggs & whatever Petra & Anika from Ronia & Pippi have created this week along with their delicious fresh almond mylk.  Time to restock the pantry & fridge – all the basics are covered at the Market & they just taste way better than the supermarket, often at a better price (think Nigel's organic vegies at Oamaru Organic's) as it's a farm to table price without all the middling meddling people!

I highly recommend you check out Tartan Sari’s brand-new green chutney (if you like coconut cream & Janefield’s coriander). I had a taste of it while Danielle was experimenting with the recipe & then the Market board of trustees all tasted it this week at the monthly board meeting & it was declared delicious (the lime pickle is pretty amazing too).  Something for all.

Shop your way around Otago this weekend…. at the Market! 

Remember to scan in at the cones at any of the entrances, see you Saturday.

This Week in the kitchen

Chef Amy is still a week or two away repairing her fractured arm so instead we have gone Leek mad on the recipe archive front, with a bright and delicious potato soup that includes Rocket! Yeah.... (yes, I do sing Def Leopard to myself every time I use this tasty green). Which you could have with the leek & blue cheese pizza and/or the gratin... if I could add a GIF of Homer Simpson drooling here, I would... get these ingredients and much more, from the amazing vendors at the Market!  Kristina

Hello Picklelovers.

We have two new offerings at the market from this week. Lime pickle, which is similar to our Orange and Lemon but with more ZING, and another family favourite ‘Green Chutney’. Made from coriander and coconut, the unique flavour is unlike anything you have tasted. It adds a freshness to any meal and is perfect as a dip with cheese and crackers, drizzled over nachos or simply spread onto a slice of bread. Check out that beautiful bright green! 

Our products are plant-based, and we always have free tastings at our stall, so come and have a try. We put them in order of spice level so you can start at the bottom and work your way up…how far will you go?!

Remember to return your jars for 50c off your next purchase.

Danielle

This week, our pancake sandwich special is Pear & vanilla Gourmet low sugar jam, served with vegan custard (made with fresh almond mylk, coconut cream, chia seed and a bit of sugar) and roasted hazelnut. Every week, we have a different jam special, they are all delicious, and taste of fruit more than sugar.  Also, we welcome all your feedback, feel free to talk to us about your experience.
