Raspberries, plums, peaches and nectarines are ripe for the harvest.

We are pleased to say that your Farmers’ market is growing with the summer season. More produce coming on, and more vendors joining us also.

Last year, at the Brilliant Backyard Expo, we met many people who love and support the market weekly. The busy market is testimony to your unwavering patronage. However, we also learnt that the Covid Lockdown and consequent temporary market closure sadly caused changes to shopping habits for some people. While some made it their mission to shop local with the reopening of the market, a small number unfortunately was lost to new routines. We hope to win you back this year.

Come and join us in your brilliant Marlborough backyard, bring your friends and family and do your community and family good, by shopping for  locally produced products, directly from the producer. You can’t get fresher, and have more fun while you shop too.

We’ve got you covered with summer fruits, local fresh produce, dairy, honey, cured and fresh meats, breads and baking, and even chocolate! As the regulars know, the market offers much, much more.

Leave the dishes behind, and have Sunday brunch at the market, with fresh juice, and delectable from our gorgeous food trucks. The weather is looking good.

See you Sunday, rain or shine, from 9 til noon at A&P Showgrounds.

Isobel Olives

Following a profuse flowering in November and an abundant fruit set I am hoping for a good harvest in June.

The oil from the 2020 harvest is intensely flavoured, high in polyphenols which provide the many health benefits of extra virgin oil so come and taste it.

My trees are grown locally in Rarangi using organic and biodynamic principles to help increase the polyphenol levels. My oils are certified as extra virgin olive oils and all have silver medals so you can buy with confidence.




Burrata is a soft mozzarella shell, hand filled with a smooth mixture of cream and mozzarella strands that are hard to resist!

It’s beautiful with a seasonal salad and fresh baked bread.

Because we’ve had a lot of interest in this cheese, we are going to have quite a few Burrata at the market on Sunday which we very rarely have.

Three Cats will be back on deck Sun 17th with all the usual suspects we hope

Sharp AS Tool Tip

From time to time you have a favourite knife [ or tool ] where the handle breaks. In the picture is a good chef knife where the handle grips had broken. I made a simple handle out of a wine oak stave which gave it a more comfortable feel and ready for Christmas with many more years of use. Remember if it’s got an edge to sharpen come and see me at the Farmers Market.
