This Week at the Market

5th September 2020

Hi there

Jai he.jpg

I neglected to mention that The Porridge Bar returned to the market last week. We were delighted to have them back serving up nourishing bowls of goodness and selling the best dried fruit at the market. If you haven’t checked out their range of Central Otago dried fruits and condiments then you really really should!

Fathers Day happens this Sunday. Whether you are dusting off the barbie or planning a delicious brunch for Dad you will find everything you need to create a memorable feasting occasion at the market. There are lots of foodie gifts as well including wine and eco brewed beer.

September is Bee Aware month. Bees are the miniature powerhouses of the insect world and without them our food production is basically stuffed. We can all help with improving bee populations by planting bee friendly gardens. The plant and honey vendors at the market will be able to advise about which plants the bees love.

I recently went to visit Alan and Annie from Jia He Asian Food Manufacturer. They came from China 8 years ago and now own and operate this bustling, busy food factory producing a lot of the city’s tofu and bean sprouts. The factory is large and recently modernised.

The week is spent making tofu, dumplings and steamed buns and sprouting mung and soya beans. They also deliver to many specialty grocery shops, Chinese restaurants and Pak n Save. The soya beans they use to make the tofu are from Canada.

With just this industrious couple and one other staff member they play a very important part in Dunedin’s local, Asian food scene and work extremely hard.

Their dumplings, tofu and sprouts are  extremely popular at the market, be sure to check them out.

A reminder to every single one of you, please be super mindful of social distancing and keep 1 metre from other customers, staff and vendors. We need our market to be safe for everybody and the easiest and most effective way to achieve this is by physical distancing.

Stay warm.

Kind Regards

Kate

How's it all going?  What a magic end of winter!  Thought I'd put something in the Newsletter, my week doesn't feel quite complete without it.

Spring and time for renewal.  There's always been a few gaps in the grove planting so let's sort these out.  Plus, we've always fancied offering mixed table olives in a nice jar so there's a few interesting varietals in here to add to the Manzanillo.

Did you know?  We still have a few bottles of both EVOO and infused oil available as well as the hazel nuts.  We're still offering free courier on orders over $100 so hop onto www.dunfordgrove.com if you're missing our lovely products!

Locavore 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
