poynter farmers’ market – duncraig

The Poynter Farmers’ Market opened today to a sell out success. By the time we arrived at 9.45am (the market opens at 9am), the baked goods were all but sold out, queues were trailing for produce and the coffee cart was doing its best, trying to keep up with the caffeine orders for adults and granitas for the kids.

Highlights include organic vegetables, homemade macaroons, Il Panino breads, Soldridge Lamb and Elmar’s hotdogs (go the cheese kransky with special sauce!).

With so much community support and all proceeds going to Poynter Primary P&C, these markets can only get bigger and better.

    Hi, I’m the owner of the stall pictured above with nothing left to sell. (our name is Brioche by the way!) My apologies to all those who missed out – we severely underestimated the demand for quality baked goods. We won’t make that mistake again in a fortnight!
    It was fantastic to see such a crowd there on Saturday supporting this long awaited market and we’re looking forward to getting to know the locals and hearing their feedback and suggestions for our bread and pastries

    Trish – Hi Trish! How apt – there is a brioche left on the table! The markets were ultra successful and I hope other vendors, will follow your example and stock up for the onslaught of eager customers. Next time I will surely grab a brioche from your stall. Best of luck to the Brioche stall and to the markets.

    It certainly was a great success and all of the hard work definitely paid off. I love that markets like this are making their way to the suburbs. Looking forward to heading back there tomorrow.

    bruisemouse – Markets moving out to the suburbs is definitely a good thing. I totally hated it when the first popular farmers’ markets were in Subi and Claremont! The prices and choices weren’t great – especially when the produce was organic or priced expensively for the surrounding demographic. The Poynter P&C have done a good job and hopefully their initiative will be replicated by other schools. Thanks for dropping in!
