It’s back to school for the kids next week, and for many big kids (adults) also back to work. Time to get healthy snacks in to the lunch boxes all round, and to get back into a daily routine.

How about some tree ripened fruit and freshly shelled nuts?

Our pick would be the many stone fruit on offer: organic plums, peaches and nectarines, and for nuts locally grown hazelnuts, almonds or pine nuts. Add to that some bite sized salametti from the Swiss Butcher or Biltong from Nayama, and voila, the healthy lunch treats are taken care of.

While at the market, check out the abundance of fresh veggies, listen to the busking tunes over a coffee and a bite to eat from our Food trucks.

See you Sunday, 9 til noon, rain or shine

Breakfast and brunch

Select from the many delectable offerings prepared by our food trucks.

Long Acre Farm is back with their farm kitchen after a wee break. Feast Merchants and the Gourmet deli always provide delectable treats with a seasonal menu, and for a hearty gourmet European sausage from the BBQ visit the Swiss Butcher.

Luisa plum lovers will be happy this weekend as the season begins on Windsong orchard stall. These sweet nectarine-like plums were the star of last summer’s country calendar programme.
