What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
Black muscat grapes have arrived. These deliciously popular grapes only have a very short season so visit Andy at the Costanzo Apple Stall for your grapes this week. Grown on their family farm near Stanthorpe this popular medium sized dark grape is very sweet making it a wonderful complement on a cheese platters, in salads or simply as a delicious snack. They also have new season PEARS and Royal Gala apples – simply the best!

BACK THIS WEEK:
- Nudgel Nuts – Ian is back and we are thrilled that he has his new season macadamia nuts. As it is very early in the season he only has a small selection of his value added macadamia nut products but this means there is more to look forward to over the coming weeks as harvesting picks up. This really is what eating seasonally is all about.
- 11th Hour Coffee – Alistair is back after his short break.
- Belles Kitchen – yes Belinda is back with her delicious artisan muesli, crackers and ready to go for school brekkie’s and lunch boxes try her Choc-a-cino blend – so tasty and quick!.
And don’t forget to look for Bangalow Road’s delicious chilled almond milk under the camphors; Byron Cane Juice in the pavilion and Oakleigh Farm’s eggs at All Natural Meat Co.
Summit Organics – one of our newest farm stalls is now next to Byron Cane Juice so meet Tania and check out their great range.
