What’s NEW at the Market this Week?
Rob Costanzo has high hopes that they will have their black muscat grapes for another 3 weeks so enjoy these while they last. Grown on their family farm near Stanthorpe this popular medium sized dark grape is very sweet making it a wonderful complement to cheese on a cheese platter, in salads or simply as a delicious snack.
Fabulous food choices with everything from Banh Mi and spring rolls – super smoothies and smoothie bowls, Japanese style – fried chicken, Katsu burgers- a Japanese style Panko chicken burger and Yaki soba – Japanese stir fry noodles; the good old Aussie pies, samosas, French and Danish style pastries PLUS iced lattes and more.
Hot and cold, sweet or savoury we really do have something for everyone.
