As we all rug up and do our best to keep warm and keep the lurgies at bay, warming, hearty comfort food and beverages are appreciated more than ever. This month is known for Bastille day, Christmas in July, Plastic Free July, Dry July and we’ve got you covered for all these at this July 6th market.
First things first though, you must get yourself one of our fresh July 2019 - June 2020 Market date cards. There’ll be no more confusion during those 5 weekend months! Available from our Info stall from 8am till midday.

The test keg sold out in record time a few weeks ago so come early.

Gammon is very popular at this time of year for Christmas in July. Like ham, gammon is cut from the hind leg of the pig. In fact "gammon" came from the French word for hind leg however unlike ham, it needs to be cooked. Although it has been cured and smoked, it is still raw. Trunkey Creek Bacon and Pork and David’s Larder specialise in Gammon.
As the world gets set to celebrate Bastille day, Gault & Millau have kindly given us copies of their 2019 Australian Restaurant guide book to give away to our Northside Produce Market customers worth $30. Pick up a copy for you, friends and family at the Info Stall from 8am till midday.
The French theme continues as our Travelling Foodman introduces The Bisaha. A French Moroccan inspired Bircher muesli of rolled oats & barley, sour cherries, orange blossom infused figs, burnt butter sesame tuiles, toasted pistachios, yoghurt & seasonal citrus – ooh la la!
Join millions of people around the globe in making a concerted effort to reduce their plastic waste this month by bringing your shopping bags, water bottles, keep cups and keep cartons to the market. This is something that we encourage on an ongoing basis and appreciate all efforts made. Don’t forget that if you ever do forget your shopping bags, you can always pick up a free one or two at the Bag Depot at our Info stall.
This Saturday, the free Tune In & Check Up for your bicycles will take place in the car park area of the market. Thanks to the support of North Sydney Council, Rolling Fix will be supplying the TLC that your bike just may need!
