What’s GREAT This Week?
Spring is in the air so this week we are shining the spotlight on OLIVE OIL and OLIVES. Why! Because they have been missing for a couple of weeks but are BACK. And how could we dress a spring salad without the BEST olive oil?? If you haven’t yet discovered his locally grown and produced olive oil – this is IT  Grumpy Grandmas extra virgin olive oil is simply the whole olive crushed and the fruit sediment is separated from the water and oil. The grower contracts this process to experts in the industry with the facilities to maximise oil production. The oil is simply fruit juice full of anti-oxidants! So very delicious! Pick up a bottle this week at Spice Palace.

Not only can you find the most amazingly fresh and varied spice mixes at Spice Palace but also

the most appetising dips, dukkahs, tapenades, satays and both green and red harissa. One of my spring favourites is their beetroot, almond and mint dip. Yummo!

Rob is looking after Tweed River Pecans and macadamia oil for Ian McRae while he is away so you can really stock up at Spice Palace this week.

 Seasonal, Fortnightly or Absent Stallholder Changes this Week: 

  • Belles Kitchen BACK NEXT week.
  • Coffee Australia is absent this week ONLY.
  • Murwillumbah Community Men’s Shed BACK NEXT week
  • Narbey’s Best Avocados returns in October with Lamb Hass.
  • Nudgel Nuts – Ian is AWAY for the next 3 weeks having a well earned holiday travelling to interesting places so Spice Palace will carry pec
    ans and maca oil and spread out a little
    for the next few weeks. Thanks Rob for helping out.
  • Tallogum Raspberries – sometime in November is their expected return date.
  • Tweed Palliative Support is back this week.
