We have topped up our ONYA products for Christmas

We have topped up our ONYA products for Christmas, and have these great Backpacks available as well. Hard to believe they squish down into those little bags! So handy for your market shopping!

Plenty of the 5 piece Produce bags now, still some of the 8 piece ones left too.
And these great completely compostable 36L bin liners.

So come and see John and Gill at the Membership and Information Stall on Saturday. Sorry, cash only.

VHFM Raises Funds for Important Projects

Victor Harbor Farmer's Market raises funds for important projects

Victor Harbor Farmer's Market raises funds for important projects

The Victor Harbor Farmer's Market is looking forward to a solid summer season. Winter can be bleak, but due to a loyal band of customers and stallholders they continue to keep a tradition going that has been going for 11 years in December.

Seven stallholders have been part of the Victor Harbor Farmer's Market (VHFM) since it inception.

The VHFM is a not-for-profit incorporated association and has donated $9900 in the 2018/19 financial year to groups who need assistance.

HELPED START IT: Brenton Tamblyn was the first manager of the Victor Harbor Farmer's Market in December 2008.

The inaugural manager of the VHFM Brenton Tamblyn remembers proudly the origins of the market and the amount of money it has donated to key groups.

"The market offers something different in produce and it is a community with an identity of its own. Initially it was established by the City of Victor Harbor and with this support we have created a special service to the community," Brenton said.

"Over the 11 years, the market has donated significantly to charities and the community, in particular to groups like the Salvation Army, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Bradley's House, the Community Garden and schools in the region."

Brenton has always been a constant at the market and runs a stall each Saturday morning from 8am to 12.30pm. Like all stallholders, Brenton is there rain, hail or shine.

"We put growers and producers directly in touch with customers and Grosvenor Gardens really does come alive each Saturday," he said.

"The place is full of character and we are a family. I would like to give credit to former chair of the VHFM Jane Williams. She is a passionate foodie, very generous and well liked. It is what the market is about."
