Father’s day

Hey all you Dads out there – why not start your Sunday morning indulging in the great selection of food and produce at the Market?

This Sunday is Father’s Day and what better excuse to start the celebration than to spend some quality time at the market with Dad. Whatever you like to do together, the market can help, be it a tasty brunch, getting stuck in the veggie patch prepping for the season or getting supplies to cook up a legendary feast for Dad this weekend.

 

See you this Sunday from 9am – 12pm at the Marlborough Farmers’ Market!

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to join us on FaceBook.

Highlights

To all cheese lovers: The Harnett is back.

Kaikoura Cheese will have the first batch of the Harnett for the season available this Sunday. The Harnett is a washed rind Jersey cow cheese. It tastes incredible.

Over at Spudz N Greens celeriac is coming into season. It’s in plentiful supply and selling for $3 each. You can still get your hands on a little salsify too. For recipe inspirations check out this newsletter edition, it could be a father’s day hit. Salsify is getting getting close to the end of the season, so try it while you still can.

Log Acre Farm is back with their delicious free range pork from the Onamalutu Valley.

Honey, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, hummus, tempeh, premium olive oils, cured meats, small goods, fresh fish and a delicious range of preserves are just some of the many products available at the Marlborough Farmers Market.

Best Food truck at the Marlborough Farmers’ Market

A huge congratulations goes to Feast Merchants for taking out the best food truck in the Wild Tomato Nelson Tasman & Marlborough Dine Out Awards. So well deserved and and a priviledge to have them join us at the market each Sunday – another great reason to come to the Marlborough Farmers’ Market this Sunday.

Could this be another Father’s Day treat?

Do you want a plastic bag?

Get singing and thinking everyone, the latest release from Kiwi Musician’s Kath Bee and Levity Beet is here.

Their lyrics are full of fun. “Cloth bags, baskets, sandwich wrapped cotton boxes made of cardboard, now what have I forgotten?”

Even though plastic free July might have ended we are hoping your BYO plastic free ethos remains in full swing.

Did you know we have lots of plastic free options at the market?

At the community stall we have sturdy and roomy Farmers’ Market branded hessian bags for all your goodies. At Frut4U you can bag your own fruit, and they also have re-usable nylon bags available. Over at Isobel Olives you can get your very own beeswax cloths which are brilliant for wrapping sandwiches, snacks and wraps. They will also keep your veggies fresh longer.
