From all of the Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market family, we hope you had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed a day full of happiness and festive cheer. At Harvest, the show doesn’t stop and we are set to go for yet another market this Saturday!
Harvest is the perfect place to bring your visiting family and friends this holiday season, showcasing some of Tasmania’s best food and wine in one central location. Buy a smooth cup of coffee from Ritual or Provenance to kick off your day the right way, knowing your beans have been sustainably sourced and roasted to perfection. Followed by a bite to eat from one of our selection of Ready-to-Eat stalls – One on the Slide, Seoul Food, Meat Bread Cheese, Kabul Veggie Delights, and Small Grain – the hardest part will be knowing which to choose!
The cooler weather in Tasmania has seen a later start to the season for our stone fruit producers, but this week Penna Valley Farm are in house! Come down and grab yourself a bag full of their sweet, vitamin-C packed apricots and be sure to take home extras for your homemade jam….a sure way to keep the taste of Summer going long into the cooler months. And there are berries and cherries aplenty this weekend, with Jones River Co Pip’s Cherries, Bioberries, Ferniehurst Cherries, Sheffield Berry Gardens, Westerway Raspberry Farm, and All Things Cherry casting a rich red hue across the market.
At Harvest we love a good product collaboration between resident stallholders, with some of their best ideas born out of a relaxed Saturday morning conversation between serving customers. With beekeeper Tristan (Honey Tasmania) and brewer Willie (Seven Sheds) being long-time stallholder neighbours at Harvest, it was only a matter of time before they collaborated on a tasty honey-infused brew. Tristan helped stir the mash paddle and throw in a couple of buckets of his delicious Manuka honey at Seven Sheds brewery back in October, and this week Willie will be unveiling the final product – bottles of delicious Honey Bee*R. The brew is a full-bodied amber ale, laced with Manuka honey notes. Why not grab yourself a few and see the New Year in with style!
There are plenty of reasons to come to Harvest Market this weekend.
See you there!
