THE weather has improved distinctly and spring is definitely here – hurrah!
Spring brings an active time in the kitchen and the garden – time to consider your summer food garden in earnest and invest in some seedlings, perhaps?
Certainly, it’s a great time to visit the Prom Country Farmers’ Market, which is on this Saturday from 8am to 12 noon in the grounds of the Foster War Memorial Arts Centre.
After a break, Catherine and Lyndell have returned from travels. Catch up with their travel stories and top up supplies of their preserves.
Golden Creek Olives will have three varieties of new season olive oil available – pop in and try the fresh flavours and choose one for the start of salad season.
Amber Creek Farm will have fresh cuts of free range pork, bacon and smallgoods available. If you haven’t tried their range yet, you really should – the flavour is amazing: a great reward for buying ethically raised pastured pork.
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program from Foster Primary School will again have some delicious food ready to eat from their stall, including the bbq and soup.
The market welcomes Cannibal Creek Bakehouse, who will be bringing their sourdough bread to the market from this month. Be sure to try something from their range.
The baby boom continues at the Prom Country Farmers’ Market, with the third arrival for the year. Welcome to Emilia, and congratulations to Renata and Marius from Farm to You Eggs. At this rate the market will need to invest in a playpen for Klara, Clancy and Emilia to play in next year!
