What’s NEWS at the Market?
This is the perfect time of year to enjoy a farm tour – not too hot and usually not too cold! Fingers crossed it will be sunny too. There is so much produce in the ground that is flourishing at this time of year making it the perfect season for farm tours. We are thrilled that two of our farming families are offering farm tours this month.
Sylva and Ian from Sylva Lining Organics invite you to their Farm Tour and Brunch THIS Sunday 11th July at 10.00am. Located at Eungella they are only a short pleasant drive from Murwillumbah. They enjoy showing you how they grow their mineral dense organic produce at their organic permaculture farm.
Backyard Chef will be set up under the trees amongst the vegetable beds. Following your walk you can enjoy “the creative delights from local culinary maestros, Jonathon and Mel from Ju Ju’s. Their brunch menu is showcasing produce directly from the farm. And of course they are offering other refreshments too.
What’s NEWS at the Market cont?
Tania, Rod and Ryan Bruin from Summit Organics invite you to their Farm Tour and Lunch on Saturday 24th July. Their farm is based at the foothills of the border rangers and the McPherson Ranges. A superb position and a beautiful drive. Their passion is seasonal food and sharing the providence of their food with their customers. This is what gives them the energy and joy to keep producing their 50 to 60 different varieties of fruit and vegies (including herbs) throughout a year. Tania said her customers are like their second family. Rod and Tania’s focus has been on soil improvement – now they have an amazingly rich productive soil. As Rod says we know the trends from listening to our customers.
Tania creates a deliciously simple lunch to showcase their own produce and its flavours.
They only have 10 more spots left on this tour so book with Ryan at the market this week so that you don’t miss out. They will have another tour in September.
The Cupboard Above the Kettle Update:
Al, who gives amazing seated massages has injured his hand, sliced it in fact while chopping down a large banana bunch. Unfortunately he won’t be at the market this week. We wish him a speedy recovery. The good news is that Jenny WILL be at the market offering all her very helpful advice and herbal teas.
What’s GREAT at the Market?
Lots of beautiful flowers at Jumping Red Ant (farm stall). They have their amazing Leucospermum’s in a vibrant red bling with a range of other floral bunches for you to enjoy. At Platypus Point (inside the pavilion) Cathryn has a combination of amazing preserves and beautiful farm grown proteas with lots of interesting floral greens.
Unfortunately we have cancelled the entertainment we had planned for the school holidays due to the tightening of Covid Safe restrictions. We look forward to having Jester J back for the next school holidays.
