What’s NEW at the Market this Week?
This week we welcome Gunter’s Flammkuchen providing us with his unique woodfired flammkuchen’s. Gina and Jon welcome and highly recommend Gunter’s Flammkuchen to fill the gap in their absence. They look forward to being back with us next week.
Flammkuchen is the name given to a German style wood fired pizza – a variation on the traditional Italian pizzas and it has to be tried to be appreciated. This very popular variation received a 10/10 score by a very happy customer at another market.
Doug and Blanch are back with Narbey’s Best avocados this week. Hass are now in season so come and have an avocado splurge this week. Such a healthy fruit to enjoy.
Ian is back with Nudgel Nuts so if you have run out of macadamia nut butter, oil or simply his delicious nuts come and see Ian this week.
My Farm Kitchen returns with Susie who has been cooking up a storm using Weka Weka farm produce to make wonderful preserves and deliciously popular slices.

great health – every week. Everest Farm has one more week of young carrots with tops intact.
