Spring abundance coming up for Nethercote Markets

Nethercote Produce Market is expected to wrap up its final market for 2019 in true laid back spring fashion. With plenty of abundance promising to be a Bega Valley highlight not to be missed.

In season for spring will be avocados, hazelnuts, herbs, lettuce, lemons, mandarins, onions, oranges, parsley, potatoes, rhubarb, rocket, silverbeet, snow peas and spring onions. There will be loads of eggs, cheese, honey, jams and pickles, fresh pastries, wine and delicious cakes and pies, grass fed beef and lamb, sauces, chilli products, oysters, smoked seafood and bread, all produced on Nethercote's doorstep.

Why not invite a friend along and enjoy breakfast or morning tea while listening to live music from Red Heart Blue.

Noel and Trish Butler will be giving a talk on bush foods with samples at 10.30am.

If you have some fresh home produce to sell, but not enough for a stall of your own, you can sell it through our Growers' Stall.

Drop your produce off to Nethercote Hall between 3pm and 4pm on Friday afternoon the day before the market, or before 8am on market day.

The Nethercote Produce Market donates a large portion of its profits to a worthy local cause, which you can support by buying your morning cuppa from the morning tea stall, fruit and veggies from the Growers' Stall or raffle tickets for the market hamper that contains samples of delicious goodies from each of the stallholders.

This market will be supporting the local food growing projects gardening guru Costa Georgiadis is set to visit on his upcoming tour of the Far South Coast region in November. Costa will be visiting schools, preschools, urban agriculture projects and quiet achievers who deserve a little credit for all they give to our community.

The market is run by volunteers and are always happy to hear from people who'd like to give a hand setting up, washing dishes, serving morning tea or packing up. Contact Michelle on 0400 341 282 if you can lend a hand.

The spring produce market to be held at on Saturday 26 October at Nethercote Hall, starting from 8am for the early birds and closing at 12 noon, just after the hamper raffle draw.
