We are super excited to be hosting our 4th annual Harvest Celebration!!

When - May 11th

Where - Northern Car park at the Farmers Market

What -

  • Juicing Apples - bring your own apples or buy some from a vendor and watch our european, hand made apple press turn them into sweet nectar to take home. Bring clean jars and bottles with lids.
  • Vendor costume party - have a giggle at the creations that our vendors come to light with!
  • Marvelous Marrows - get creative with the time honoured marrow and bring your creation along to the market on the day to be judged. Carve 'em, decorate 'em, make furniture out of them - we don't care but we will judge'em at 11am and the prizes will be worth your effort!
  • For the kids - animal, vegetable creations - enjoy creating a tableau or a one off favourite animal out of vegetables and /or fruit. Toothpicks are useful and you and your kids will have lots of fun playing around with the concept. Bring your masterpieces to the market to be showcased, both on the day and later in our newsletter and social media pages.
  • Community groups galore, from screen printing reusable bags, to heirloom fruit trees to what happens to all the coffee cups and compostables we collect at the market. Loads of information sharing about our local food scene and waste minimization here in Dunedin.
  • Music! - Melissa and the Dr (https://www.facebook.com/MelAndTheDr/) are performing from 10am with Terry Ebeling creating a mellow sound from 8am.
  • Market Kitchen burgeoning with autumnal, harvest type food offerings. Ever had hot, spiced apple juice straight from the apple press? or pumpkin bread with apple butter? well you are in for some healthy, delicious, warming taste treats.

Put the date in your diary and be sure to get involved! Spread the word and show off our award winning market to some new comers!
