What’s NEW at the Market this Week?Lychees are in this week at Jumping Red Ant. They are the perfect accompaniment to a prawn and avocado salad for your Christmas Day gathering.
We also have cherries and apricots for one more week ONLY at Costanzo Apples so grab some this week to tide you over the Christmas period.
What’s GREAT this Week? Our new season garlic is so fresh with crisp juicy cloves encased in their papery casing. There really is nothing to compare with such wonderful locally grown new season garlic. It is perfect for baking to bring out its sweetness or crushing across hot buttery sourdough toast or adding flavour to pesto. Several bulbs of garlic make a great addition to a Christmas hamper.
We are thrilled to have the following artisans this week.
Emu Beads will definitely be at the market Michele has assured me.
