A little rain to freshen up our gardens was welcome this Sunday and maybe a drop or two today! I hope you had some moments during your weekend to experience the peace and joy of the natural world around you – wherever you are. We are so fortunate in the Tweed to have the mountains and the sea both nearby.
If you can’t get out into nature bring some into your home with our beautiful market flowers.
What’s News at the Market this Week?
Mateo Van Pacheteau and his Caribbean Sorbet stall has returned weekly now the weather is warming up and what a joy it is to have an authentic fruit based sorbet that is not too sweet. It is extra refreshing😋
Matéo brings his 5 years of experience at markets in Reunion Island in the Caribbean using seasonally available fruit as a basis for his traditional sorbet or sometimes fruit out of season that has been frozen – but always locally grown. Mateo uses a traditional wooden Caribbean machine to make his sorbet so say hello to Mateo this week and see how the sorbet is made. Last week it was a delicious raspberry sorbet made using Tallogum Berries’ raspberries – such a beautiful colour from the authentic fruit. This week it will be mango and his popular coconut sorbet that is just perfect to use on his caramelised banana brekky bowl.
CWA stall – this week we are supporting the Country Womens’ Association in their fund-raising efforts so that they can continue their wonderful work helping others. They are bringing their very popular home baked cakes and cookies.
Did you know that the CWA was formed in 1922 when country women were fighting isolation and a lack of health facilities? Within the first year, the Association was a unified, resourceful group that was going from strength to strength.
The members worked tirelessly to set up baby health care centres, fund bush nurses, build and staff maternity wards, hospitals, schools, rest homes, seaside and mountain holiday cottages – just to name a few.
The women of the CWA have been initiators, fighters and lobbyists. And this hasn’t changed. They have made localities into communities by providing social activities and much more.
The Murwillumbah Community Men’s Shed will return for their monthly stall on the first Wednesday of next month with popular breadboards and more …..
