Hi there

delicious dunedin.jpg

This dratted weather has meant that there will be no more asparagus at the market this season. Rod and Nic got flooded out and in order to protect the crowns for further years they made the difficult decision to call it a day.

On a bright note though Earnscleugh  Co-Op will be back with the first of the season’s cherries. These glowing little jewels never fail to enchant.

If we get a few days of hot weather there will be an abundance of everything we love, hang in their folks it’s bound to happen soon!

Take a run by the merchandise available at the market for Christmas presents and stocking stuffers. Delicious Dunedin, a truly local, funny, engaging read with excellent recipes is for sale at the very competitive price of $45, plus we have other items to help you and yours reduce single usage of anything! Market gift vouchers are also a really popular gift idea. We can do these up in a nice little folder for you.

There will be NO extra market this Christmas. You will be able to buy all your Christmas produce at the market on 22nd December. More details on this market as we get closer. Our market runs 52 weeks a year so there will be a fresh supply of fruit and veg arriving for 29th Dec and 5th January – stone fruit season is almost upon us!

See you Saturday

Otago Organics Christmas Orders


I am sure your Christmas planning is underway and, all being well, we will be at every market between now and then. Every year we have brought natural organic pine Christmas trees to sell. If you would like one for this year please place an order with us and tell us when you would like it. All sizes are available to order, ranging in price from $5.00 - $20.00. Otherwise we will be bringing two or three of the smaller size each week, beginning on Saturday 8th December.

You can also place orders for other produce that you might need for Christmas to be picked up at the Christmas market. We can supply a wide range of culinary herbs. Our mixed herb bunches and sage bunches are particularly suitable for Christmas stuffings and you could also place orders for broad beans, if these are a must for Christmas meals . We should have plenty available by then. 
See you on Saturday.
