This Week at the Market

25th July Market

Hi there

The sun has been shining and it feels as though we can see plants growing and smell a little bit of Spring in the air! Next will be the first of the daffs @ the market.

We have coKo lounge starting @ the market this week. They have ceremonial grade cocao for sale and are making hot cocao drinks. Many people are turning to cocao as a replacement for coffee. Give it a go, we believe this super food does have a similar effect without the caffeine. They will be down in the lower market next to Blue Mountain Butchery.

Just a sneaky heads-up that Merrall will be @ the market this week with a few flowers. Not many, so first in gets the pretty bouquets.

See you Saturday.

Stay Warm.

General Manager

Plastic Free July & Beyond...

Market Kit 2.jpeg

#plasticfreejuly continues & of course it's not only July!  You can find at the market our UYOC Cup Library, which if you haven’t brought your own clean keep cups or jars for coffees, juices, etc, is available for you to borrow a cup or mug from.  Or you can buy your own Otago Farmers Market Keep Cup from us.  We have our Bags for Good scheme at the market caravan for you to borrow a bag if you haven’t brought your own then return it clean to the market the next time you visit or alternatively we have good, strong hessian Otago Farmers Market bags for you to purchase at the caravan.  Bring your Wax Food Wraps to wrap purchased goodies in or we also have handcrafted ones available at the market caravan.  Likewise with Produce Bags which are made from recycled light weight fabrics for $2.  Otherwise bring your own market kit of containers, cutlery, etc.  Lots of options!

Helping make a difference to the world by recycling. 

Did you know Bay Road & their yummy peanut butter will swap their clean, empty jars back when you re-purchase?  Delicious Agreeable Eggs accept their empty, clean cartoons back.  The healthy, tasty Wild Dispensary range has a bottle return scheme where $1 per bottle is donated to Dunedin Wildlife Hospital.  Holy Cow of course has a jar return for their terrific dairy produce.  Likewise  Kapowai Brewery has a refilling station for their amazing kombucha specials of the day. Caitlins Kitchen & Truebrew will happily fill your containers, bottle swap, etc.

The freshest fish at Harbour Fish are in seal-proof, home compostable bags. Ettrick Gardens have various options of produce bags for their huge array of awesome vegies.  Henry at Whitestone Cheese will kindly use your own containers; Le Crepe will also do the same.  Port Larder with all their delicious chutney’s & jellies will accept your jars.  All our bakers use paper bags.  Ronia & Pippi accept bottles back from their great nut mylks & cold pressed juices.  Ben at Brightside Microgreens will take your container to stuff full of green goodness & there are so many other helpful vendors too numerous to name here at the market that are happy to accept BYO containers, don’t be afraid to ask them!

Hopefully the BYO habits will become second nature....  This is only the beginning.  Wherever you are always look for or ask for produce and food that isn’t pre-packaged , much like most of the deliciously, fresh food at the farmers market.  We know we still have room for improvement here though and our friendly vendors are strongly encouraged to use sustainable packaging whenever possible.  So go forth, shopping sustainably & healthily!

Locovore Boxes to your Door

locovores 2.jpg

If you can't make it to the Otago Farmers Market on a Saturday morning for whatever reason & you are still keen to support local growers and makers, and here’s a way you can do that: 

Locavore Boxes include produce from a number of Farmers Market growers and producers in their boxes: veg from Oamaru Organics, Janefield Hydroponics, Caithness Farm,  Wairuna Organics, bread from Gilbert’s, dairy produce from Holy Cow, Kombucha from Kapowai, eggs from Agreeable Nature, fruit and veg from Rosedale Orchard. They also source from other local producers not found at the market: BL Beekeeping (based on the Taieri), Roastery Door coffee from South Dunedin, Vern Paddock Produce from Mihiwaka.  That means you can still support your local growers, buying locally grown /produced food - with the added bonus of having it delivered to your door! Check their website - www.locavoreboxes.co.nz
