Fleurieu Community Foundation – National Homelessness week 1-7 Aug

Yesterday at the market Mark and Leonie Cox representing the Fleurieu Community Foundation were there drawing attention to National Homelessness week, 1-7 August.

The Fleurieu Community Foundation, in collaboration with local agencies, are holding a free homelessness awareness forum on Wednesday 4 August 6.00pm at Chiton Rocks Surf Club.

See the poster or their page for more information. In early April this year the VHFM Committee donated $5,000 to the Foundation in recognition of the amazing work it does in our community.

John and Gill at the Membership and Information stall will sign you up today!

Perfect day for joining the market if you aren’t a member already. 10% discount at all stalls, and you are contributing to a wonderful community asset.

John and Gill at the Membership and Information stall will sign you up, and answer any of your questions.

It’s also the Covid sign in point, QR codes are repeated at each stall, and they are Covid Marshals.
It’s a beautiful morning, come and buy great fresh produce out in the open.

Remember, you have to be seated if eating or drinking anything purchased from our great range of hot food providers.

8.00am till 12.30pm

Twilight market day, and what a perfect day it is too!

From 4.00pm till 7.00pm this evening you’ll be able to get all your Christmas food shopping sorted. Plus those pesky last minute, hard to buy for presents in a relaxing, friendly environment, some nice classical guitar playing, coffee in hand.

You can have take away dinner from Atomic Food, or one of the amazing range of pies Brent & Courtney have been cooking up at Jelly: Pt Elliot. Brent will also have the usual Fleurieu Milk Company range.

I’ll definitely be going to Chocolique to finish my Christmas shopping. Fantastic range of choices.

Dora and Bona will have these packs of Greek biscuits at H Kouzina Mas, plus all sorts of other goodies.

Neil will have prawns again at VICTORFISH, Gina and Matt cherries, strawberries and raspberries, but you better get to Gina’s Kitchen & Field Berries quickly! Anna’s Homestyle Baking will have all sorts of delicious delicacies, Feather & Peck are really hoping to make it.

Virgara’s Garden will be there, Healthy Sparkle Nutritious Delights, Lilyarra Artisan Cheeses, Inman Valley Poultry, De for your last minute Christmas Cakes and puddings at Calico Cakes and finally Mark at Garden candy, Herbs, veggie seedlings and succulents are great Christmas presents.

John and I will be on the Membership stand for anyone wanting to join or renew their membership.

It’s going to be a great night.

The VHFM is extremely grateful to Gill and John Muller for all their hard work!

Big surprise for Johnny and me at this morning’s Victor Harbor Farmer’s market. I was walking back to the Membership stand and hear our names being called out, Gina is up in the Rotunda on the microphone calling us up there to receive this amazing box of goodies and thanking us for the work we do for the market!
Something in it from every stallholder!
Soooo much chocolate, including our favourite Truffles, Sticky Fig Dressing and honey from Kangaroo Island, Chutney, Caramilised onions, my favourite Goat curd with dill, Gina’s beautiful strawberries, 2 dozen free range eggs, spuds, peaches, plums, swedes! Half a kilo of prawns! A chillii plant! So much food! Lovely people😁
I forgot the Christmas pudding, our favourite cannelloni, apricots, nectarines and more! Gill and John Muller.
