Just two more Markets to go…

…and ten more sleeps til Christmas.  In the meantime check out our video below for great Christmas gift and feast ideas.  If your family have already descended bring them to the Market on Sunday – we’ll feed them brunch while you do your shopping.  We have a wonderful range of produce available this week and don’t miss out on your chance to buy a raffle ticket – the hampers will be superb.

See you this Sunday from nine til noon at the Marlborough Farmers’ Market!

Highlights

Traditional Country Preserves still have some gift baskets and bon-bons for those last minute gifts. They can also send baskets around New Zealand but this Sunday is your last chance to organise it – cut off for Christmas delivery is North Island Monday 18 Dececmber, South Island Wednesday 21 December, and you need to allow 2 extra days for rural delivery.  Get in now for your favourite condiments as stock is flying off the shelves at present.

Spudz n Greens will have the accoutrements to your Christmas meal with fresh locally grown Broccoli, Jersey Benne Potatoes & Highlander Potatoes, and Red Onions.

They are unsprayed and ready to eat without peeling, a convenient size for a meal so no lingering leftovers to clutter up the fridge and a steal at just 50c each! There is a good supply of basil this weekend too, in bunches or bags if you want to make your own pesto.
