SUMMER IN THE MARKET

We are well into summer now in the Waikato, and it's certainly been a changeable one! One minute cold and the next minute hot! This has had an effect on produce in the market, Strawberries have been slowed, the Corn is late (arriving in the market the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of January), and the stone fruit will be in the market a few weeks longer than usual (yaay!!). However there is still an abundance of beautiful Blueberries, Tomatoes, Capsicum, Beans and Potatoes and Garlic. Avocados in Hamilton (although not available in Cambridge this year). There is still plenty of Carrots, Beetroot, Radishes, Cucumber, Zucchini, Cabbage, baby Turnips, summer Lettuces, Basil and Spinach.

You can get some wonderful Pickles to have with your summer salads, Eggs, Organic Milk, Meat and Fish, Salmon, and many varieties of beautiful Breads.

Bring the family and spend some time enjoying a coffee or an ice cream under the trees, listening to our talented buskers and enjoying the best of a heavenly Waikato Summer.
