This Week at the Market

7th February 2020

Hi there

Chris and Melissa 1.jpg

Well what a difference a week makes.  From a heaving, busy, buzzy market last Saturday to a incredibly wet week weather wise with all the devastating flooding down south & over Milford way & surrounds.  We are glad that Wairuna Organic's from Clinton will make it to the market this weekend after their property saw it semi underwater.  Thinking of all those affected this week, hopefully everything dries out soon so the cleanup can begin...

New vendors.  You will find the friendly faces of Melissa Donaldson & Chris Watkins up on the platform.  They are from 303 Apes Rd, Waikouaiti, land that has been in the family three generations.  The soil & land has been developed for 20 years under organic certification.  You will find a wide variety of spray free vegetables at their stall up on the platform.  Welcome!

Reminder to all & in case you weren't aware, we do have a No Dogs policy within market, even those teeny, tiny cute ones sorry!  I know when I come along to the market as a punter to shop, I just tie my scruffy little jack russell terrier up inside the main fence by the gate & market caravan & he's pretty happy with all the attention (& we try to keep a general eye out from the caravan on them).   We welcome you to tie your friendly pooches up there while you shop & keep everything clean.

Also,  if you ever get approached by a man at the market asking for $5 or $ for coffee or buses or whatever, could you please decline this as he can become a nuisance & abusive.  He has a trespass notice at the market.  Please let Kate or Ted or myself know at the market caravan so we can deal with it.  We like to keep a safe & friendly community at the market. Thanks!

See you at the market in the morning..... I'm looking forward to tasting my first figs of the season, that's worth getting up early for!

Kind regards

Michele 

Assistant Manager
