Have you heard some of our regular stallholders on the radio in recent months? The market has been advertising on Nova 91.9 with a series of commercials featuring three of our stallholders. Bob Heath from Najobe Beef, Tim Neilson from The Wild Apple and Rebekah McCaul of Alexandrina Cheese did a great job in sharing their perspective of the market. You can listen to their adverts here.
Apples and pears are in abundance at the market at the moment with our selection of stallholders representing some of the the best areas of the state for growing these seasonal fruit. With McCarthy's Orchards from McLaren Vale, Ashbourne Valley Orchards from the Fleurieu Penninsula, The Wild Apple and Otherwood Orchards from the Adelaide Hills and The Food Forest from Gawler we have a great regional selection.
