This week at the market: Definitely more apricots and maybe cherries.

Lots of corn so the prices are very competitive.

Black Russian tomatoes at Cecil farm stall and Jumping Red Ant (photo is JRA’s). Rainbow Fruit Flats has heirloom tomatoes so pop along and taste a real tomato.1517413_1569501689950326_9154739268954200810_n

Entertainment – Rob Csokas

Christmas food gift ideas –

If you need some inspiration for those Christmas gifts why not think about consumables such as:

  • Macadamia oil, nut butter, choc coated macas and more at Nudgel Nuts.
  • Grumpy Grandma’s Smoked olive oil from Summerland Olives at Spice Palace – or an array of other flavoured oils such as lemon myrtle or chilli infused.
  • Amazing Christmas biscuits, a gingerbread house or gingerbread Christmas tree at Crumbs and Stuff
  • Packets of award winning sun dried Sicilian herbs and spice flavoured olives from Summerland Olives at Spice Palace.
  • Packets of Tweed River Pecans from Nudgel Nuts.
  • Salted Caramel or any number f artisan conserves from Crumbs and Stuff.
  • Raw honey from Tweed Caldera Honey or perhaps some lovely beeswax candles.
  • Rainbow Fruit Flats – roll them, fold them, shove them in your lunch pack and take them anywhere! from stall by the same name – great especially if your hamper involves a family – children love these.

Everyone loves hampers with any number of these items – simply add in fresh apricots and cherries on the day that you give it to the lucky recipient.
