Christmas Market Update

Only 4 days until Christmas! Can you believe how quickly this year has flown?

Yes the market is on this Wednesday and next week too. Our farm stalls will have a bountiful supply of beautiful fresh fruit and vegies for you to enjoy.

If you haven’t had time to make your pudding yet don’t worry – Jan, Janice and Katrina (at the CWA stall) still have Christmas puddings and all sorts of Christmas treats for you. Come along pick up some last minute treats for your Christmas table.

 Stock up on Nimbin Valley Dairy cheeses for your Christmas and New Year cheese platters as Carlu is taking a well earned break next week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And if you are still looking for lovely gifts – a hamper or cellophane wrapped conserves (The Gourmet Salad Hut and RFF’s), infused oils, olives and special spices and dips from Spice Palace will delight.
