Wheat, malts, beer & bread – this week 8th August 2020

posted in: This Week

Ferment for thought. Fermentation is the delicious alchemy that transforms our foods, making them more delicious and more nutritious.This week at the Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market we will be celebrating grains such as wheat and malt and the magic fermentation works on the raw ingredients to bring bread and beer to our tables.

Karina from FermenTasmania will be hosting a show and tell session with brewer extraordinaire, Willie from Seven Sheds Brewery.

If bread is more your thing,  and we all know just how good the sourdough bakers in Launceston are, then Karina has sourced jars of sourdough starter to give away together with the right and wrongs of caring for your sourdough mother.

We welcome back Thistle Hut cut flowers who will be alternating weeks with Lily Farm. Josh at Sandy’s Sourdough has been hard at fermenting wheat and this week will have a delicious array of bread and pastries. Josh has been collaborating with The Tassie Hemp Shop . The result is a hemp loaf.

This week we also have the return of duck from Strelleyfield Farm and lamb from Hazelbrae Hazelnuts as well as our delicious cuts from our regular meat producers Mount Gnomon Farm, Oldway Farm and Real Beef.

Snow  transformed out city earlier this week into a wonderland but it is not forecast this Saturday and the weather looks like it will be partly cloudy with a minimum of 0º and maximum of 13º.

Please remember to keep our community safe:

Harvest operates to strict crowd density limits and we carefully track the number of people inside the market.

To keep our community safe please:

  • Limit the time you spend at the market.
  • Take away your food purchases for consumption.
  • Pay by a contactless method where possible.
  • Bring your own bags.
  • Keep social distancing especially in queues.
  • Volunteers will count all patrons entering and exiting the market.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at all entrances and at the Harvest stall for public use.

See you on Saturday!
