July is Plastic Free Month – ONYA

As you know July is Plastic Free Month. The Victor Harbor Farmers Market Committee is very keen to help towards the Market becoming as plastic free as possible, and to help you in your homes too.

We will be selling these brilliant ONYA products at the Membership Stall as soon as they arrive! Hopefully this Saturday, but unfortunately looking at the tracking of the parcel delivery it may not be until the following Saturday.

The Produce bags are made from recycled plastic drink bottles, and weigh so little you just put your produce straight into them, onto the scales, then home into the fridge. And because they “breathe” produce will last longer. In little pouches of green, red or purple, they come in 5 or 8 bag packs.

And finally, compostable bin liners! 36L bags, 25 on a roll.

Other sizes and products are available, John will have a catalogue that you can look through, and maybe place an order with him.

Members will receive a very generous initial discount of 20% on all products, non members pay full retail prices.

So fingers crossed we’ll have these products available on Saturday, if not, definitely the following Saturday, 19/7.

Exciting!

Childhood Cancer
Bradley’s Place

Did you know that since 2016 the Victor Harbor Farmers Market has been giving every family that stays at Bradley’s Place $50 in market vouchers, plus market membership for the day?

These families are staying at Bradley’s Place in Inman Valley on respite, whilst dealing with childhood cancer.

Before the Market took over donating the vouchers Neil from VICTORFISH had been donating his own for a number of years.

They get 10 $5 vouchers, so they can use them all at one stall, or spread them around. As well as the 10% discount the membership provides.

A lovely way of helping these families, and introducing them to one of Saturday’s must visits in Victor Harbor.
