What’s NEW This Week?

We welcome Doug and Blanche Narbey back this week with new season Shepard avocados – always so popular. Doug said that this season’s Shepards will only last until early May so Narbey’s will be absent until June so come and enjoy these while you can. They also have some amazingly large mangoes.

Kaye and David at Tweed River Pecans have harvested new season pecans. They are available in their shells now with processing underway. In May we will see supplies of their new season shelled pecans. Come and taste these at the Nudgel Nuts Stall this week.

AND Crabbes Creek Woodfired PIZZAS are back for the school holidays – come and enjoy your choice – Gunters Flammkuchen and/or Crabbes Creek – two very different styles of pizza!

Most of our stalls will be back with us this week at the soccer club car park again while the showgrounds continue to be cleaned up and dry out ready for our return on 19th.

This month we celebrate our 6th birthday and NEXT Week we will be letting our hair down with all sorts of extras. Follow us on Facebook to see daily posts of artisans coming and what they will bring, kiddies activities and more.
