Wild Winter

Brrr! It feels as though Winter has us well and truly in its grip...and yet signs that Spring is just around the corner are everywhere! Trees are in bloom, bulbs are coming through all over Victoria Square in Cambridge, Jonquils are popping up in gardens all over and the weather in the last few weeks has a hint of Spring warmth in it! Although it's probably it little early to throw off those Winter layers just yet, and the Markets are in their lowest occupancy period, we still have plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to keep you going. You can still get Pears, Apples, Kiwifruit and Lemons. There is Kale, crisp Silverbeet, baby Carrots, baby Beetroot, Rocket and lovely winter Lettuces. In Hamilton we have lovely Oyster Mushrooms, Choko (or Chayote) and Mircrogreens. Milk is in plentiful supply, so if you have a bit of a Sunday sleep in you might still be in time to get some! Of course at both markets you can still get all your Weekly Staples, Artisan Breads and baked goods, Meat, Fish, Salmon, Free Range Eggs, Preserves, Award winning Cheese and Honey. Plus fruit trees and potted colour for your garden. You can get a killer coffee and breakfast for the whole family while you shop. See you there!
