Featuring Fresh Local Produce
The Boat Shed Market aims to deliver a diverse range of high quality produce for locals and visitors alike. The recent introduction of a Regional Table to the Market provides a way for producers who are unable to open a stand-alone stall to make their produce available to customers. This week the Regional Table will include:
Salad greens, potatoes, broccolini and more from Bathgate Farms;
Certified organic tomatoes, pumpkin, cucumbers and watermelon from Gledhow Organics;
Large garlic bulbs from Mt Barker Fresh Garlic;
and new season Feijoa’s from Rainbow Coast Produce
On the waterfront – every Sunday Morning
10am to 1 pm – Come on down.
