Summertime and the livin is easy…

Fish are jumpin’ and the summer fruit bins are stacked high

Oh, the fields are rich in produce and your farmers market breakfast is good-lookin’

Marlborough’s summer streets are quiet. Everyone is walking at a relaxed pace wearing a holiday smile, while our stall holders are busy harvesting the bounty of produce at this time of the year.

Grab a coffee, shop and chat with friends, munch on a brunch. Make the most of our Marlborough Summer while chillaxing to the tunes of our visiting busker.

See you Sunday, 9 til noon, rain or shine

Some of our Market Highlights

Busking entertainment

We welcome back international busker Reinis Young to the market this and next Sunday. You may remember him performing at the market last year. Such an amazing gifted talented musician – not to be missed!

Reinis has come here all the way from Latvia, Riga. He is a passionate traveller and an even more passionate guitar player. For many years Reinis has travelled around Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Asia sharing his exceptional guitar skills and original songs using different kinds of guitar playing techniques – including tapping, percussions, and finger-picking.

With his guitar performances, inspired by his travels, Reinis brings energetic performance to audiences and in his creative work he has released already four solo albums.

Garden Bees

Try our new comb honey sections now for sale.

Comb Honey is just as the bees made it. It retains all the subtle flavours and aromas of honey straight from the hive.

Honey Comb has many uses. These include use as a spread on toast or bread, a snack on its own for instance, or crushed over breakfast fruits.

When used as a spread, you can eat the comb is eaten along with the bread.

Pedros Empanadas

Did you know Pedro has 9 flavours of Empanadas, not to mention his fresh gluten free pasta? The empanadas make a great snack. Get them hot from the pie warmer at the market, or chilled to prepare fresh at home.

Three Cats

We are back again this week with another batch of blackcurrant vegan meringues which were popular last weekend along with the vanilla and raspberry flavours and our different pickles

Isobel Olives

Come and try these beautiful olive oils and make this salad dressing shared by Chris to tantalize your taste buds.

Think salad with the barbie, olive oil drizzled bread from the Snailhouse bakery, followed by ice cream and olive oil combo (Yes, apparently it is amazing). Summer just got even better!!

Isobel Olives has three levels of flavours of extra virgin olive oil EVOO – delicate, medium and robust (the last 2 both have silver medals from the national Olives NZ competition). Try drizzling over fresh pineapple or Goats Amore ice cream for a new taste experience.

Here is the special salad dressing:

Dr Piper’s salad dressing

6 tbsp EVOO – Robust best
2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar or lemon juice
1 tsp roasted sesame oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard (this will emulsify the dressing
1 tsp honey

Shake well to emulsify and store in the fridge – shake before use
