What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
Blueberry Fields so badly affected by the hail storm in the first week of November is BACK this week. We are thrilled to welcome Susan and the Blueberry Fields blueberries. Whilst they did sustain HUGE damage to their hail nets the nets also protected enough of their crop that they are picking blueberries again – enough to be at the market for the next few weeks at least. So bring back your BUCKETS and enjoy.
CWA Christmas Stall commences this week with the creative cooking duo – Jan and Janet who have cooked up a storm of Christmas goodies for you to enjoy or give as gifts. They
will be at the market each week up to and including 20th December.
Belles Kitchen – if you missed out last week then pop over to Belles Kitchen this week and check out her artisan foods created especially for the discerning foodie. AND next week she will have on display The Entertainer Hamper containing her full range of RU Crackers flavours, Nana’s Tomato Relish, Tomato Chilli Jam and Tamari Roasted Almonds & Pepitas.
