What’s NEW at the market?
Nudgel Nuts is back
Ian returns this week with new season macadamia nuts and they taste sublime! The quality of freshly picked macadamia nuts has to be experienced to be understood. They are sweet and so full of flavour. Could anything this delicious be good for you? YES! They are packed with many nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that all contribute to optimum health and wellness. And they provide us with excellent dietary fibre and carry no cholesterol. What a bonus to something that tastes so good!
Tweed River Pecans will be back at the Nudgel Nut stall too.
If you missed last week’s market – we have new stall – Love in Blossom French Patisserie
Did you try their very popular French toast made with their own brioche – a classic rich French bread that is slightly sweet? With its soft, golden crust and a yellow, buttery, silky crumb it already has a following.
Ben is making sweet or savoury crepes to order and this week he will have many more of their popular mini almond croissants too and popular eclairs so plan to enjoy their selection which includes award winning macarons (see details in last weeks post).
All Natural Meat Company – Lee and Peter have been busy making a yummy chilli beef sausage this week as well as their famous preservative free beef beetroot and ginger sausages. Check out their full range of meats and enjoy locally grown beef and pork – Lee and Peter are both the farmer and butcher.
Dragon Fruit at Rainbow Fruit Flats are at their peak now so try some this week. Divine in a dragon fruit smoothie or frozen with banana and mango for a very healthy after school treat.
Locally produced compost – final week of this compost made from the liquid yeast waste from Stone and Wood’s brewing process and sawdust from the forest industry.
Coming soon: Next week (tbc) – FRESHLY harvested oysters and FRESHLY caught fish, spanner crabs and on occasions prawns.

Weather Forecast is for: 60% chance of showers with a daily temperature range from 19 to 30 degrees. If it is anything like today (Monday) – with a similar forecast it will be delightfully sunny with the odd cloud passing over after an early shower.
The market celebrates 5 years on 13th April and we are planning to do this in style. We will have artisan stalls and we are embracing the Boots for Change national campaign. So begin preparing your favourite boots for the best fancy boot competition and find your oldest boots for the boot tossing competition and maybe a best recycled boot competition (they make great mini gardens).
More details next week about our upcoming birthday celebration activities.
