August 2012 market

This Saturday come down to the Wingham Showground between 8am and 12 noon and see what the Wingham Farmers Market has to offer.   Whether you are looking for fresh local produce, some soup to warm your tummy, catch up with friends, be entertained by Jessica Martin or talk to local producers there is always a great range to do, see and buy at the Wingham Farmers Market.

This month features Dawn Stone in the Producer Profile.  Dawn and her range of homemade cakes (including diabetic and gluten free), pickles, lemon butter, fruit butter and relishes are located in the undercover pavilion at the Wingham Farmers Market.  Not only is Dawn a long standing stallholder of 23 years, her family has lived in the area for seven generations.  Dawn is well known for her cakes, particularly sponges and Christmas cakes and puddings.  Talk with Dawn about placing your Christmas order.

 At 10am Bill Archinal will talk about his grass fed beef enterprise.  Bill and his wife Alison finish cattle for private kill and then package the meat through the butcher for direct sale.  Bill and Alison manage their property Holistically and breed Shorthorn with Angus cross for their beef enterprise.  Bill attends the markets throughout the year selling Archinal potatoes and pumpkins when in season.  Come along to the Community Stall at 10am to hear Bill and sample some Archinal sausages.

If you have home grown surplus produce, bring it to the market’s community stall to sell for you! Fresh produce less than 15 kg will be accepted, dropped off either at the market by 8 am or by prior arrangement through the Manning Landcare office.

New stallholders, with locally grown or made produce, are welcome.   Call Annette on 0416 247 456 for more information.
