What’s NEW this week?
TANZO Apple Stall has MOVED outside the pavilion. This week their popular and delicious black muscat grapes and Royal gala apples will be found in their new location under the camphorlaurel trees past Nimbin Valley Dairy and near Simply Divine Cupcakes.
Noel Baggaley from Brunswick Seed Oyster will be commencing at the market in 2-3 weeks. Noel is presently setting up his portable cold room so that he can bring FRESHLY harvested oysters and FRESHLY caught fish, spanner crabs and on occasions prawns. Of course like most fresh food it is seasonal so mid to late March we may be lucky to see some mackerel just before the season ends. Perhaps the fish will be snapper and flake! As we approach Noel’s first week at the market he will let me know in more detail exactly what he will have for us to enjoy.
For 2 weeks only from next week – fresh locally produced compost for your vegie patch.
- Picking has commenced so Ian from Nudgel Nuts has advised me that he should be ready to return to the market around mid March.
- Doug thinks that Narbey’s Best Avocados will return early April.
- 11th Hour Coffee is back on 2nd March
