Sprightly Spring

Is there any better sight after a cold winter than bulbs up everywhere, the sweet smells of Magnolia and Jasmine, beautiful pink Cherry Blossoms and majestic Oaks covered in new leaves? We've had some really beautiful warm days so far this spring, and some wild weather too! Another lovely spring happening is our seasonal stall holders coming back into the market! So far Avocados have come back to Hamilton, Asparagus and Macadamias to both markets, and even some Strawberries (though only a little bit - you have to be an early bird to get some!). Fresh Blueberries will be available about the end of October (although you can still buy frozen and yummy preserves).

In other market happenings Wholly Cow has returned to Hamilton and Jersey Girl has started in Cambridge. Our Creative Market will become a monthly market from the first of November, and will be held on the first Sunday of every month from then on. You might have been lucky enough to score some of our Grab One vouchers in September (they sold out really fast) remember you only have until November 10th to use them! Like us on Facebook and we'll keep you updated on all the market news as our lovely Waikato produce comes back into season!
