The Gourmet Salad Hut has had a range of fresh greens on special over the past few weeks. This week it will be bunches of watercress and coriander for only $2.
Coriander is alsoavailable from the two organic farm stalls.
With two coffee stallholders at the market you can take your pick. Richard from Zeta’s Coffee at Carool in the Tweed offers artisan coffee at the back end of the pavilion. Alistair with his 11th Hour coffee van has Zetveld’s Coffee (from Newrybar in the Byron Shire) as well as teas. This offers more choice for our valued customers as coffee tastes can be very varied.
Coming soon: Next week we welcome Jodie and Mike from Hayters Hill Grill who commence with a menu that includes a whole lot of rolls including pulled pork, egg and bacon, burger and egg, bratwurst sausage on a hot dog roll and more.
