Newcastle City Farmers Market

Newcastle City Farmers Market is held on most Sundays at Newcastle Showground. I thought I’d hop on down today to see what I could see and maybe get a few interesting photos. It’s good to get in early so you can see all the produce at its very freshest best – so be sure to arrive at 8AM when the gates open.

 

Not far from the carpark entry I spotted this very enticing advertisement for organic vegetable soup – too bad I had just eaten!

The first stall I encountered was that of Bluegum Limes. They make a range of lime juices, cordials, and sauces, as well as fresh fruit.

A little further on, was this gentleman with a huge range of syrups and cocktail mixes. Yummy!

 

 

There were apples in abundance.

 

 

Not just apples – potatoes as well. If these were any fresher, you’d have to dig them up yourself.

 

 

There isn’t just fresh produce on display. Want hats?

 

 

And there’s jewellry by Oscar & Matilda – be sure to have a chat with the lovely Zoe….

Next were some beautiful fresh pineapples, asparagus, spring onion, and rockmelons…

 

 

Do you like smoked fish? Then this may be for you. Courtesy of I’m Smokin’ Hot…

 

 

It was time to move into the pavillions. First I found some fantastic looking olive oils from Wollombi Produce & Trading Company. Rosemary, Orange & Fennel sounds interesting…

 

 

Also on display were some colourful soaps…

 

 

…and some just-as-colouful candles.

 

 

The Hunter Valley Pasta Company was present.

 

 

Time to go back outside, where the band was playing.

 

 

And time for some Dutch Pancakes as well…

 

 

Finally, this little puppy knows what oranges are for.

 

I fully recommend Newcastle City Farmers Market for everybody who wants a bit of the best fresh local produce from around Newcastle & the Hunter Valley!!
