This weekend we welcome a new stallholder to the Market, the Tasmanian Juice Press, with their selection of “junk-free, cold-pressed juices”. After developing a loyal following at markets in Southern Tassie, we can’t wait to taste them!
Tasmanian Natural Garlic and Tomatoes will be returning this weekend with a good selection of tomato seedlings, as well as chillies, capsicums, eggplants and other seedlings. They will also have globe artichokes and rhubarb.
We spoke to Annette from TNGT about the upcoming garlic season and here’s what she had to say:
“We are right into fresh, aromatic spring green garlic season. In my view, we are just entering the best time of year for garlic. Green garlic is light, sweet and juicy with no waste, as you eat the whole plant. The top of the plant is a mild garlic flavour, gaining strength as you move towards the forming bulb. Try it in a stir fry, just like you would use leeks or spring onions. Green garlic makes a wonderful refreshing soup and a brilliant pesto. Chop and sprinkle over pizzas. For a brief time, you can even use the roots. We like to crispy fry them.
Many people are asking for garlic bulbs. Please be patient. Harvest season is coming up and they’re now only weeks away. Meanwhile, garlic scapes are just around the corner. A great time all round for garlic!”
– Annette Reed, TNGT
