Triple B Biodynamic Beef

Triple B Biodynamic Beef is back at Victor Harbor Farmers Market every fortnight from this Saturday 5th August.

Liam & Madeleine of Triple B Biodynamic Beef, are back at the market fortnightly. Their beef & lamb is from their certified biodynamic farm (certified since 2003). All their animals are humanely treated, sustainably farmed, grassfed, finished on grass and packed in their butcher’s shop on the farm. Madeleine is an ardent cook and is happy to share recipes and information to help you make the most of your purchases.

Only beef available at the moment – BUT ONLY THE BEST CERTIFIED BIODYNAMIC, GRASSFED, HUMANELY TREATED AND SUSTAINABLY FARMED BEEF you’ll get your hands on! Their magnificent lamb will be available again in a couple of months – ready for Spring because it is a seasonal product.

Bree May on 25th February

So excited to announce that we will have Bree May doing a cooking demonstration at our ‘I Choose SA’ farmers market day on Saturday February 25th.

After winning My Kitchen Rules in 2014 Bree has been unstoppable and currently has a residency at the Adelaide Central Market with her wicked sauce line.

She is a blogger, public speaker, writer, ambassador and most importantly a food lover! My favourite words from Bree are “life’s too short for fake butter, cheese and people.”

We will have Bree kicking off at 10am using local market produce and cooking up of course, something delicious!

Francesco Virgara Interview – October 2016

Q: How long have you been at the Victor Harbor Farmers Market?

A: With the Victor Harbor Farmers Market? Since the 1st day, nearly eight years. We have been with Willunga for about 13 years and Adelaide Farmers Market since their first days.

Q: Where are you from? And how long have you been in Australia?

A: South Calabria Italy. I have been here since 2000. I came for a holiday to visit family 25 years ago and now I live here.

Q: Where do you live on the Fleurieu Peninsula?

A: Aldinga.

Q: What is your favourite thing to grow?

A: That is hard to answer. Cauliflower, there are lots of different ones, white, Romanesco, purple. People don’t believe but everyone can grow it but only very few people can grow it well.

Q: I have to ask even though I think the answer will be obvious but what is your favourite season?

A: Spring! Of course! I’m busy planting in the garden. Spring is like being a teenager.

Q: What is your favourite food and your favourite place to eat in South Australia?

A: Fish, shellfish! And Salvatore Pepe is my favourite chef. His restaurant is Pepe Cucina. The best.

Q: What are you most proud of in your garden?

A: I’m proud of everything when they’re coming good. When you grow something you do the best you can and put everything into it so when it comes good, I am very proud. When something doesn’t work in my garden, do not come near me! It makes me so cross!

Q:  Lastly Francesco, what is your favourite thing about the Victor Harbor Farmers Market?

A: It has the most friendly environment. What I like is the relationship between stall holders and our customers. Everyone likes everyone.

 
 
You can find Francesco at his stall ‘Virgara’s Garden’ selling beautiful seasonal vegetables every Saturday morning rain, hail or shine.
Try and get in early though as Francesco has a reputation for selling out!
