Ever come to the Market for fresh produce and then look for something to create with it once you get back home? Wheat Berry is here to help with a range of delicious ready-to-use pastry – fresh and frozen.
Wheat Berry is a small business making true authentic pastry ready for you to embellish your own dishes. The ready-to-roll packs are great for making your own sausage rolls, quiches, pies, flans and tarts, or they can be frozen for future use. Both sweet and savoury puff and shortcrust pastry are on offer with types and flavours varying from week to week. Flavours on offer may include spelt and olive oil, mustard, butter puff, chocolate and vanilla bean. And packs are made for single dishes – so there’s no more wasted pastry!
Come and chat to Grace from Wheat Berry on your next Market day, she may just inspire your next meal.
We welcome to the Market newcomer Angela Noble with her very cool health business, Gift Of Our Earth – and these products are awesome! Healthy, probiotic-filled drinks and DIY kits so you can make your very own Kombucha, Jun Tea, Water Kefir or Milk Kefir.
After a lifetime of back problems and the heavy pharmaceuticals that came along with it, Angela wanted to heal herself naturally and began researching how to get her gut back in check without using more traditional medicines. Add to this a passion for educating people about being healthier and moving away from diets filled with sugar, caffeine and alcohol, and her business was born.
Angela focuses mainly on producing healthy probiotic-filled drinks including Kombucha – a fermented and lightly effervescent tea drink which can be flavoured with different fruits, Jun Tea – a similar fermented health tonic, Water Kefir – a drink made from symbiotic grains of bacteria and yeast that ferment in water, and Milk Kefir – which uses the same fermented grains to turn full organic milk into a yoghurt jam-packed with good bacteria. Choose from her DIY kits for Kombucha, Jun Tea, Water Kefir and Milk Kefir and find out more about how to get the most out of these drinks. You can even buy her Kombucha and Lemon Water Kefir on tap.

This month – meet Geoff from Bombolini. Geoff is a relative newcomer to the Market, and his artisan doughnuts have gone crackers with many people queueing up for these sweet delights each week.
Geoff makes the doughnuts with a unique dough with a real depth of flavour. All Bombolini doughnuts and the fillings – custards, jams, cheesecakes and creams – are made fresh and then garnished with different toppings. Popular varieties include the salted caramel custard and lemon curd cheesecake.
Meet Geoff and find out more in our new meet the stallholder’ video series here.
Did you know we have our own Market recipe book? Our recipe book shares the stories and recipes of the people and produce who have made our Market what it is today. The book is available from the Market each week from the Rotary Help Desk. Because figs are in season right now, this month’s recipe is for Figs and Prosciutto Wraps. It comes from John and Marion Cole from Lindfield Park Produce.
