Mick Auddino from Auddino’s Produce, a long time stallholder, is the subject of a short online documentary, Orange Tree Blues. This doco shares the powerful story about farming and Mick’s devastation at the loss of productive fruit trees due to a downturn in exports. Thankfully, Markets like ours are a good thing for farmers like Mick, and have assisted with sales. Mick says “buying direct from the farmers market is a fresher line of product…people are starting to wake up to it”. Mick is a true fair food pioneer and you can check out the film here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyVS6qbdjBI Better still, come and visit Mick and Auddino’s with their quality home grown vegetables.

Yep indeed the weather might be colder, but you can make it that more bearable by stocking up your fruit bowls with some of our producers’ fresh seasonal offerings. This month sees the return of a few favourites with delicious fruits on offer. Burnbar Fruit are back on 22 June with ripe custard apples and lovely avocados. And mandarin season is finally here! The season started late due to the unseasonably warm weather, as the frost is needed to bring out the sweetness of these little orange delights, but Auddino’s Produce are now on board with mandarins at the market each week. Grab some for the best vitamin c hit ever!
