The fragrant smell of fresh farm produce filled the air, mixed with the tantalising aroma of freshly made foods and the sound of laughter.
Grey Goose Game Lodge was a hive of activity as Newcastillians soaked up the warm August sun, enjoying the Newcastle Farmers Market and all it had to offer.
Rapidly becoming a popular fixture on the Newcastle social calendar, the Newcastle Farmers Market yet again proved to be a resounding success on Saturday, August 3.
From offering the freshest seasonal vegetables, meats, poultry, seafood, fresh milk, eggs and butter, to various home-baked goods, arts and crafts, and a cocktail bar, they had it all.
But the day wasn’t just about searching for the freshest foods and embracing the artistic flair of Newcastillians.
Live entertainment by the harmonious NHS Choir, as well as popular local musician Steven Couper, set the pace for a truly community-orientated event. An event where people, irrespective of their backgrounds, could socialise and enjoy what Newcastle has to offer.
During the day, St Martin’s Village hosted a Relay Fun Run, where funds were raised for the organisation. An initiative which saw participants run around Grey Goose’s dam in a relay, as shoppers cheered them on.
“We at St Martin’s Village would like to thank those who participated, as well as those who donated prizes, money and their time to the event,” says Robyn Pentz of St Martin’s Village.
Focusing on uniting the community, involving local charitable organisations, while allowing Newcastillians to experience a truly unique shopping experience, the Newcastle Farmers Market is one initiative you do not want to miss out on.
“I would like to thank all our returning and new guests, as well as all our guests who came through from out of town,” says organiser and founder of Zaya Africa, Zuliana Zaya.
The next Newcastle Farmers Market is set to take place on August 31, be sure to be part of this growing initiative.
See you all at the next Newcastle Farmers Market!
