Week one of Level 3 completed, the only things for certain is that things change continuously.

The good news is that a lot more of our stall holders can operate. They are now offering delivery, ranging from produce to Friday night dinners (no more dirty dishes at the end of the week!).

Mothers’ day is only a few days away and our stall holders can still help you out.

Gift baskets, dinners as well as fresh produce including bread, limes, honey, fruit, olive oil, salad baby leaves, microgreens, this season’s walnuts and goats milk are ready for contactless drop off and pickup.

We’ve included a banana and feijoa recipe, handy when you have a few extra to use u in backing.

Please check out the news and offers, from our bubble to yours.

Thanks for your continued support to shop local.
