2019 Winter Nethercote Produce Market
Mon 19 Aug 2019 01:31 pm to 01:31 pm
Known for its laid-back friendly country atmosphere and fresh local produce, the winter produce market at Nethercote Hall promises to be one for the whole family.
One too many pumpkins in your garden? Get creative and enter our Decorated Pumpkin competition. The Junior (under 12) winner and Open winner will each receive a $25 cash prize. Market-goers will vote for their favourite pumpkin before winners are announced at 12 noon. 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 decorated pumpkin or other produce off to Nethercote Hall between 3pm and 4pm on Friday afternoon the day before the market, or before 8am on market day.
New to this market are Breakfast Creek Vineyard from Coolagolite who sell a variety of Chambourcin wines.
Emily Stokes from Fermaculture Farm in Candelo will create a pumpkin soup and bone broth at the cooking demonstration in the kitchen at 10.30am.
In season for our winter market will be apples, broccoli, beetroot, cauliflowers, cabbages, garlic, jerusalem artichokes, kale, kiwifruit, lemons, limes, mandarins, mint, nuts, oranges, parsley, potatoes, pumpkins, spinach and sweet potatoes. There will be loads of eggs, cheese, honey, jams and pickles, fresh pastries and delicious cakes and pies, grass fed beef and lamb, sauces, chilli products, oysters, smoked seafood and bread, all produced on Nethercote’s doorstep.
The Nethercote Produce Market donates its profits to a worthy local cause, which you can support by buying your morning cuppa from our morning tea stall, fruit and veges from the Growers’ Stall or raffle tickets for the market hamper that contains samples of delicious goodies from our stallholders.
This market we are supporting the Tulgeen Riverside Nursery, run by Tulgeen Disability Services. They will be growing food for the Sapphire Community Pantry, so two worthy organisations will benefit.
The market is run by volunteers and we 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 Karen on 6495 7102 if you can lend a hand.
Invite a friend along and enjoy breakfast or morning tea while listening to live music from The Stage
The market opens at 8am for the early birds and closes at 12noon just after the hamper raffle draw.
