We look forward to a busy food lovers’ weekend ahead with the Feast Marlborough Summer Events.

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food”

George Bernard Shaw

On Sunday it’s Valentine’s Day, so why not spoil yourself and your loved ones at the market with a yummy breakfast or brunch whether it be hot or cold, fresh or cooked. Try Pedros spiced apples and walnuts empanadas, made especially for this Sunday. There will be lots more to choose from to satisfy your taste buds.

We also have lots of tasty treats & gifts to purchase and fresh flowers for sale.

Our local producers put a lot of love into their weekly toil to bring you lovely local produce and it’s all so delicious – what’s not to love?

Valentine’s Day ideas from the market

  • Give your loved one a romantic homemade Valentines Day Dinner ( see our recipe idea below )
  • Indulge your loved ones to summer fruits, award winning cheese and nuts, or perhaps some pate?
  • Treat your love to award winning olive oils, preserves, and flowers.

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