As we say farewell to another beautiful weekend we are saying hello to some great news. YES at last the Queensland/NSW border opens on 10th July – mid-way through the school holidays restoring a very welcome and eagerly anticipated freedom of movement that those of us with family in Queensland have been missing. We look forward to seeing all our border friends returning to the market over the coming weeks.
Along with this though is a reminder that we must still be very aware of our responsibility to ensure physical distancing so we are adding new signage around the market his week as a reminder to us all.
What’s News at the Market this Week?
Look out for a new forty-foot bus this week as we welcome our new meat supplier – Ethical Sustainable Produce. Peter Bond (Bondy) is bringing his beef and Susie Godden’s pork from her farm If Pigs Could. Salami, bacon and ham made from their pork will be regularly available. All their farmed meat is certified up to the point of leaving the abattoir but as it is butchered at a non-certified facility it cannot be labelled certified. It is great to know though that the pork and beef is grown sustainably using regenerative farming methods. The chickens they bring are from Green Ag in Toowoomba.
Bondy is also bringing Fair Game Wild Venison – the product of local farmer Jonas Widjaja. Intermittently they will have frozen kangaroo meat wild caught by a local colleague plus bone broths.
Ethically harvested wild venison, relieves environmental stress through excess animals denuding the environment and is a premium quality, exceptionally healthy, red meat option. Fair Game Wild Venison is based in the Northern Rivers.
So pop in this week and meet Bondy. Have a chat and see what they have.
