Marlborough Farmers Market joins the fete

The Marlborough Farmers Market joins the hustle and bustle of the fete at Pollard Park

For the first time in the history of the Marlborough Farmers Market, the market will be represented at the Garden Marlborough Fête.

Traditionally the market does not operate at its usual A&P Park location coinciding with the fête because the A&P show, after which the park is aptly named, is taking over the location for the weekend.

A small subset of stall holders is joining the collective Marlborough Farmers Market gazebos at the Stihl Shop Garden Fête on Churchill Glade, Pollard Park, this Sunday.

Neville White, Chairperson of the Marlborough Farmers’ Market says “this is an opportunity to fly the flag for the market. A number of stall holders have joined the fête on an individual basis in previous years, and with the move to Churchill Glade this year there is space to accommodate more Farmers’ Market stall holders collectively, under one roof.”

Joining the Marlborough Farmers’ Market at the fête are new stallholders Lisa’s Peonies and Mabel's English Pork Pies along with Koromiko Free Range eggs, Lowes Orchard Frut4U, Pinoli Premium Pine Nuts, Three Cats preserves, River Gold Honey and our range of locally handcrafted and handmade gift items available from the community stall.

“We suspect our sturdy Farmers’ Market branded Jute Shopping Bags will come in handy for the many fête visitors on the day, as will our wide brimmed Farmers’ Market hats”, says White.

The Marlborough Farmers Market gazebo is located at the northern end of Churchill Glade, near the stage.

Other Farmers’ Market stall holders scattered around the fête are: Cranky Goat Ltd - goats milk cheeses, Kaikoura Cheese, Hedgerows - hydroponic strawberries, Isobel Olives, Nutt Ranch, Peter The Swiss Butcher, Koffie, Ritual, Feast Merchants, Gourmet Deli, Wakame Grow and Stephens Shallots and Onions.

“Even though there is no Marlborough Farmers' Market at the A&P Park this Sunday, farmers market fans can still do most of their weekly grocery shop with us,” says White. We are encouraging all Farmers’ Market fans to come to the fête on Sunday.

Gordon Campbell: On The Erebus Memorial In Parnell

Social media can be a wonderful tool for bringing people together in a common cause. It can also be a seedbed and spreader of mis-information on a community-wide scale. To which category do the protests against the siting of an Erebus memorial (to the 257 New Zealanders who died in that tragedy) in a secluded corner of a Parnell park happen to belong?
