What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
Two pop up stalls are joining us this week for one week only this month. The Herbal Gardener’s Lise Racine is both the grower of beautiful flowers used in her unique certified organic range of skin care products and the creator and producer of the products.
Devine and luxurious natural Rose Facial Moisturiser with
certified organic calendula oil, suitable for any skin type as a day or night cream is just one of the many products Lise makes. Not only does she grow the healthiest flowers for her products but she also producers the honey used. Happy bees and bountiful flowers work synergistically at Lise’s Tallebudgera based farm.
Homestead and Co are also popping up at the market this week with their waxed cloth food covers and body balms. Mother and daughter team, Carol and Sam, have been selling their plastic replacement organic food covers for a number of years now with increasing popularity as we realise that plastic use must cease. These wraps can be used in so many ways instead of plastic to cover and store food. What a wonderful safe and healthy way to reduce your environmental impact!
We also have new market bags available this week – the perfect Christmas gift.
Belles Kitchen – Belinda has a collection of her beautiful artisan products for you to give as a special gift or have on hand for your festive gatherings! She is taking orders now for The Entertainer hamper, her full range of RU Crackers flavours, Nana’s Tomato Relish, Tomato Chilli Jam and Tamari Roasted Almonds & Pepitas.
