What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
What shouts spring more than the vibrant colours of the gerberas at Jumping Red Ant? Such a deep red and orange/red too as well as a lovely deep pink. And they will have their beautiful bunches of roses too but do be early as the roses were snapped up last week.
Jumping Red Ant also has their own farm grown avocados – mostly Hass with a few early season Reeves.
Pecan cracking fun with Kaye: Yes Kaye McNaught from Tweed River Pecans will be set up next to Spice Palace with her pecan cracker and lots of pecans for a spot of fun and great discussion.
