What’s NEW at the Market this Week?
Avocado trees from Summertime Nursery are arriving this week for one week only. So here is a thought- why not get someone special – the gift that keeps on giving year after year – a never ending supply of avocados.
Tammy Peterson from Summertime Nursery is bringing single and double grafted potted avocado trees. Varieties of the double combinations include Wurtz, Shepard, Hass, Pinkerton, Sharwill and Fuerte. As Tammy said “there are 2 trees in 1 – 2 avocado varieties grafted to 1 tree for multiple fruiting and many flavours.
# Dwarf – 2 trees in 1 – that can be kept in a pot OR
# Medium – 2 trees in 1 – for a medium backyard.
Lots of choice
In addition to our regulars over the past couple of weeks we have MORE Artisan Pop-Ups this week including:
Bon Bon Ceramics – Brony brings her clay earrings, pendants and little bowls all made using clay and collage. She is inspired by natural elements of colour, line, texture and design. She achieves through listening to her inner voice to create a visual experience that allows the viewer to connect to their own inner space of being igniting in them the creative flame that nourishes their soul. She said that “One of my favourite things is printing with my hand carved wooden printing blocks I’ve been collecting for years. Great to stamp into clay to create a beautiful surface for the glaze to sit in. Along with the blocks I also am a little obsessed with doilies and vintage lace, which also create a fantastic imprint. White clay mixed with beautiful colours makes for a brighter world”.
- Tracy Litherland of Healthy 4 life is bringing beautiful handmade body products using organic ingredients where possible. These include cold pressed soaps, body and shampoo bars, herbal and therapeutic balms and creams, bath balls and crystals – all those things that we love to spoil our friends and family with during gift giving occasions and just occasionally ourselves too.
- Thready Set Go is joining us tomorrow too. Bec makes reusable handmade products using repurposed vintage remnant and vintage fabrics. The concept and values are similar to Gravity Accessories but what Bec makes is different and include cutlery wraps, cooling bands, washable reusable makeup removers and wash cloths.
SO VERY EXCITING THIS WEEK IS OUR KIDDIES PATCH.
Paula La Belle, Amanda and some other volunteers from The Family Centre are bringing FUN activities for the littlies. They will be making Magic Reindeer Food Packs with the children and also bringing an assortment of twigs & raffia for making little Xmas tree decorations.
