Nethercote Produce Market
Saturday 27th January, 2018
Go along to the Nethercote Produce Market – All fruit and vegetables are produced by local growers whose gardens range from single beds to flourishing orchards and whose supply can be half a bucket of lemons and three sprigs of mint or 300 avocados.
Gardeners pick their produce the night before or early that morning, bring their wares to market and sell to the communal stall.
Our aim is simply to get fresh local food onto local tables.
Fabulous fresh produce & local home baked goods, cooking demo’s, live music and excellent coffee.
