I’ve been avoiding changing the banner head to Spring, because, let’s face it, where is Spring? But as we are nearly half way through October I thought it was perhaps time!
Tomorrow we’ll have a big stall from Encounter Bay Right Whale Study (EBRWS) and sister group from Great Australian Bight Right Whale Study in celebration of National Science Week. Plenty of information, merchandise available, no questions too hard.
That amazing looking slice is Zesty lemon & Coconut, from Olivia and Kate at Health by Flora.
Our other stallholders tomorrow will be H Kouzina Mas, Chocolique, Jelly. Port Elliot including Fleurieu Milk Company products, VICTORFISH, Virgara’s Garden, Hey Bagels, Gina’s Kitchen & Field Berries, Studio Goolwa and the Basket Range Baker.
No baking this week at Gina’s Kitchen, apples, lemons, veg etc, and all the condiments.
And no Anna’s Homestyle Baking this week.
Our musician will be Garry Searle, always popular.
8.00 till 12.30pm, it’s going to be a good morning.
So things are back to normal on Saturday as far as eating and drinking are concerned. You can sit down or stand up, whichever you prefer!
For the foreseeable future we’ll have our COVID-19 QR sign up at every stall. It would be really good if you would register your presence at the market. You only need to so once at one of these QR code signs.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can register your presence in writing at the log sheet at the Membership/Information Stall.
Our Covid Marshals are Gill and John Muller, though Gill may be a bit busy on Saturday, it’s the last day of trading for Southern Fleurieu Flora.
More updates about Saturday’s stallholders up soon.
VHFM September Newsletter
Welcome to the resumption of the VHFM Newsletter. It’s been a while. Good things take time to bubble away and develop their character though, just like those delicious White Goat camembert style cheeses that form from the soft goat curd over five to six weeks. By the time Gerard has them for sale at Lilyarra Artisan Cheeses at the market they have matured to perfection. Hopefully the big gap in Newsletter production has the same effect!

The South Australian Country Women’s Association Inc (SACWA) Victor Harbor Evening Branch will be here at the Victor Harbor Farmers Market Saturday 12th September 8am-12pm. They are all about friendship, learning new skills & helping our local community and meet 2nd Wednesday each month @ 7.30pm, CWA Hall.
The SACWA has been serving the community since 1929. They are not for profit, non party political and non sectarian. The organisation is made up of volunteers who work to promote the welfare and conditions of life for women and children, of all ages, whether in the city or country.
Their slogan is ‘Sharing And Caring With Action’. Sharing involves service and the giving of time, talents, efforts and finance. What is given in service is the road to what is gained personally. Caring involves friendship, tolerance and understanding of others.
The provision of welfare is important to SACWA, and they feel that social issues need constant monitoring and lobbying at local, state and federal levels. They also believe that education is continuous, heritage skills and history are worth preserving and leisure activities enhance the quality of life.
Fleurieu FM thanks the Victor Harbor Farmers Market for allowing us to broadcast from the market today 9am to noon.
As you can see, we had to compete with the alpacas for attention but had a good time and successfully used our new outside broadcasting equipment for the first time.
Great to meet up with the stallholders, especially station sponsor Neil at VICTORFISH.
Watch out for more outside broadcasts as part of our connection with the Fleurieu community.
It looks empty now, everyone’s madly doing last minute setup.
And Fleurieu FM are setting up in the Rotunda.
It will fill up soon as you all start arriving to do your weekly shopping, get your free range eggs from Feather & Peck, your fresh, fresh fruit and veg from Virgara’s Garden, Con and Harry Gina’s Kitchen & Field Berries or The Coffee Stall! What choices!
Savoury pies, pasties and Greek meals from the Coffee Stall, H Kouzina Mas, Gina’s Kitchen again!
Amazing goats cheeses at Lilyarra Artisan Cheeses, great seafood from VICTORFISH and delicious almonds from Strout Farm.
Breads of all sorts, hand made pastas, pizza bases at @From the Grain, Coffee and Fleurieu Milk And Yoghurt Company products from the Coffee stall.
8.00am till 12.30pm
We have so many stalls coming tomorrow it was easier to do this with a photo than do lots of separate ones!
And don’t forget Fleurieu FM will be broadcasting live from the Rotunda in the morning!
Southern Fleurieu Flora is back for their monthly stall, Gill has some really nice stock. H Kouzina Mas will be there, hot donuts, yum! Strout Farm are there, stock up on your favourite almond products, and Lilyarra Artisan Cheeses will be there.
