This week at the market...

February 21st, 2019

Hi there


I have had a very relaxing, camping holiday at Lake Hawea and am very much looking forward to being at the market on Saturday. I’m ready for a big hit of market ambience and to stock up my pantry. Word is that the boys from Vanuatu will be entertaining us for the first time this season. We are really looking forward to the particular brand of upbeat ness that they inspire.

We have a new vendor starting this week. The Catlins Kitchen will be bringing a range of delicious chips and dips – all lovingly made from scratch. Be sure to go and talk to Toby and Debs who will be situated up on the platform next to Bennies Honey. I personally am going to have a weekly, standing order for their amazing salsa – made from their own tomatoes and herbs. These good folks are the real deal with a strong sustainable and environmental ethos. Talk to them about filling your own container with their range of dips. Happy hour has never looked so appealing!

Sadly we have two vendors who have left the market. Botanical Kitchen have found themselves with a great problem – they’re just too busy since they opened up The Kind Grocer in Vogel St to manage the market as well. All of their wonderful vegan delights are available at their store so be sure to pop along there.

Banh Mi are also calling it a day. Their take on the famous Vietnamese sandwich was a fresh and interesting food offering to have at the market but life moves on and other pursuits beckon.

Good luck and best wishes to these two vendors.

See you Saturday



This Week in the kitchen

Summertime, and so many fresh combinations to try! Chef Kate Woodhouse is in our kitchen at the market again this Saturday, and we're excited to sample her recipes (I know I definitely want a taste of that tromboncino squash tart!). Come say 'hello' and pick up a recipe page.  If you are in need of some fresh culinary inspiration, you can always check out our recipe section on the website. Just visit and you won't want for choice!

Egremont Russet Apple Public Domain.jpg

We have picked our still small tree of Damson Plums for this week. They are the kind of fruit that you need to know about to know what to do with them because if you eat a fresh one, you will be instantly put off by the slightly bitter, astringent flavour. However, they make very special jam and Damson Gin is well known. Recipes will be available. Be in quick for these.

Our new apple this week is Egremont Russet. Russet apples are very popular in England where their sweet, sour flavour is appreciated. Come and taste them.

We also have the last of the Hetlina apples and a mixture of Akane and Freyberg apples which are small and sweet and that we are selling as “kids apples” at a reduced price.
