Nelson Farmers Market Now Has New Trading Hours
A belated Happy New Year from the Nelson Farmers Market. January is a bumper month at the Nelson Farmers Market as all the seasonal stallholders return. We are looking forward to welcoming back Little Shaggery Farm with their organic fruit; plums, apples and pears, Umukuri with peaches and Sweet Acres with garlic and corn. We are enjoying the last of the summer berries – although blueberries will continue while waiting for the melons to come on. Lots of plums and other stone fruit is currently available. If you haven’t tried the potatoes from Love Spuds then we highly recommend them. They have been getting rave reviews from our customers. What Gnocchi? has added tiramisu to his product range which makes a mighty fine dessert. Please pop on down and see what’s fresh this week. We have changed our operating hours and now close at 1pm. The Nelson Farmers Market is open every Wednesday at 23 Halifax Street from 8am to 1pm.
Welcome back to Little Shaggery Farm who will be rejoining the Market on 19 January. She will have early season apples, nashi, zwetschgen, plums, vinegars and cold juice! Little Shaggery Farm is certified organic and grows their produce using traditoinal permaculture methods.
Tomorrow (19 January) is the third Wednesday in the month which means Nutt Ranch will be at the Nelson Farmers Market with their fabulous range of hazelnut butter, flavoured and plain nuts, hazelnut oil and flour. If you haven’t tried their products we higly recommend them.
David has a wealth of experience in growing and selling. He has been a grower since 1968 and has also owned and operated a garden centre for 20 years, a vegetable shop for 3 years and a fruit tree nursery for 10 years. David started off growing strawberries and then tomatoes. He then had a wholesale cucumber operation for 10 years. In recent years David has returned to his roots and now sells direct to the public focusing on tomatoes, raspberries, caspicums and asparagus, although his produce range is expanding. David has been coming to the Nelson Farmers Market, off and on for four years.
David really enjoys coming to the Nelson Farmers Market and selling to people who care about quality. “It’s a taste thing”, he says, “you get paid for taste”. He really likes selling direct to his customers and being able to discuss his produce and share his growing philosophy.
