Apples are in their Autumn glory at this Northside Produce Market. Produce from Orange is loaded up with Gravensteins, Fujis, Galas, Mutzus, Granny Smiths and Pink Ladies. We are sorry to hear from Yuri that they won’t have their Chestnuts, having rotted with the recent rain in the region.
Brassica vegetables are in their element at this time of year. They’re part of the genus Brassicaceae, or mustard family and categorized as cruciferous vegetables (Cruciferae), or members of the cabbage family such as bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kohl rabi, kale and turnips.
It's wonderful to be welcoming back Owl Farm Braidwood. The farm like many of recent, has suffered with La Niña. David and Sarah’s perseverance and determination sees their regeneratively farmed and organically grown heirloom pumpkins, potatoes and garlic at this market.
Pepe Saya returns with the latest addition from their buttery – Smoked Butter. Smoked with native Australian hardwoods, the butter has a subtle and sweet, smoky flavour that’s perfect on a corn cob, rested on a steak or stirred through a risotto. You’ll find Pepe next to Paddy the Baker.
