It’s going to be a big weekend at the Waterlea Race Course this Friday and Sunday, for 2 days of exciting gallops with kids entertainment and two Harness events each day: There’s heaps of free kids entertainment to keep the little ones busy and a whole lot of exciting harness racing action. The highlight on Sunday is the $25,000 Marlborough Cup for open class gallopers from 12pm till 5pm…. so get down to the Farmers’ Market early for a tasty breakfast, brunch or lunch before you head to the course or better still purchase some yummy locally grown produce, preserves, goats cheese, bread, nuts etc. and take a picnic to enjoy while you are at races!!! We have Eftpos available and plenty of parking!
When hunger strikes, come down to the Marlborough Farmers’ Market where stalls overflow with local products. Bite into a bacon-and-egg burger while listening to a musician strum a guitar, sample the goods at the Cooking Demo with D’Vine or the mouthwatering varieties of melon at Stephens Onions & Shallots. Bump into friends, have a coffee and stock up on the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat, flowers, delectable bakery, deli produce and more this Sunday! Eftpos is available, and plenty of parking…see you there!!!
When the air turns cool and the trees blaze with color, it’s time to fill up your basket and taste the autumn harvest. Autumn’s bumper crop of fruits and vegetables offers a range of intense flavors and substantial textures. The farmers’ market is full of apples, figs, pears, pumpkins, kale, potatoes, winter squash and quince; all fresh and local direct from the grower to you. We have plenty of parking, picnic tables, kids activities, live entertainment, a cooking demo plus Eftpos available and market bags for sale to put all your goodies in.
