Warm up from the wintry weather with some quality produce!

24th May 2018

Hi there


Some of you may have noticed last week that a new vendor had started up on the platform. Urbn Vino is the new kid on the block selling wine made in Dunedin from Central Otago pinot noir grapes. This is the brain child of Brendan Seal, an experienced Central Otago winemaker who has established a permanent urban winery in the historic Terminus building opposite Queens’ Gardens. Apart from offering bottles of delicious pinot noir, Urbn Vino are selling 500ml screw cap, refillable glass bottles with hand-crafted pinots of Brendan’s making. Return the bottle and replace with a fresh one. Brendan will be at the market every week to talk you through the intricacies of wine making and pinot enjoyment. Find him next to Steamer Basin Brewing.

There has been a changing of the guard on the OFM Trust. Long term chair Rodger Whitson has stood down as has long term Trustee Pat Johnston. Both of these amazing people have given thousands of hours of voluntary work to the farmers market over the past 10 years or so. Rodger has been an awesome chair offering tons of practical advice and know how. He has been my go to man whenever something has broken or I need a second opinion around managing the market site. We are very thankful that, as a vendor, he will still be at the market every week because really we need him!! Pat has brought all her conference and event management skills to the party. She knows everybody, is never afraid of hard work and has spear headed the produce bag project that has been such a hit at the market. She actually made the first several hundred bags that we had and now sources all the recycled fabric for others to sew. I’m not sure what I will do without her either. She has offered me so much great advice and ongoing support.

Sharyn Crawford has stepped into the chair role with Jeremy Anderson as her Deputy. Both have been trustees for quite some time, particularly Sharyn who has rolled over at least 6 years in the role. Both are fired up to be in the roles and will ensure that the market moves into the next stage under great leadership and direction. Watch this space!

On a personal note I would like to thank all the trustees, past and present, that volunteer to make our market what it is today. Often an invisible, thankless role I’ve seen the dedication, passion, time and integrity that they bring to the role to make sure that the market stays true to its principles and continues to deliver to all our wonderful customers and vendors.


See you Saturday



This Week in the kitchen

The temperatures this week have really dropped and are trying to chill us to the bone. To gallantly combat such a fate Jack is in the kitchen with the most delightful winter warming dishes. Especially the English Onion Soup which looks to make the Kitchen a number one stop at the market this weekend!
