What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
Hip hip HOORAY! It’s our 7TH BIRTHDAY so this week we are bringing you a NEW farm stall plus additional pop up stalls and FREE children’s craft activities plus a big birthday cake to celebrate this milestone!
Also we are thrilled to have new season pecans returning.
This week Tweed River Pecans delivers possibly the freshest pecan nuts
in the world to the market! On the trees last week; picked, dried and cracked for you this Wednesday! Spice Palace will have these nuts for you at this great early season value at $17 kg for easy to peel nuts – because they have been cracked for you to peel at home.There are also packe
ts of whole nuts in their shell.
The full range of kernel packs will be available from 25th April.
We welcome NEW stall holders – Ashlee and Matthew from Barefoot F
arm. They are adding to our pecan range with their HACCP certified pecans grown on their farm at Eltham. Being friends of Kaye and David’s at Tweed River Pecans they are happy to complement
what TRPecans offer by bringing their value added range that includes chocolate coated pecans, maple roasted pecans, pecan dukkah, Texan BBQ pecans and gluten free treats such as pecan
pie and pecan brownies. They also have pecan based ORGANIC granola and muesli.
