Other market customer feedback:
Honest2Goodness I look forward to Saturday morning when I go to the market! The produce is consistently excellent and it's a real bonus to shop in such a friendly atmostphere where the stallholders greet you with a smile, get to know your preferences and will do their best to source something for you if it's not available .
I came because I passionately believe in smashing the stranglehold supermarket chains have over our food supply almost as much as I passionately believe in jumping in my car and doing one stop shopping. I’m staying cause I like meandering around somewhere with real food and sound people and pretending like I live in the country. ‘Afternoon Mick, fabulous sprouts there last week boy, keep up the good work’. Stuff like that.
I shop at the market because the quality is excellent but so too is the value.
I think people often think that shopping at a farmers market is only for the better off this is not true of the Honest2goodness market where many of the products are actually the same price if not cheaper than their equivalent in a supermarket.
Hi to All
I have been coming to the market for the past 6 months. I look forward each Saturday to getting my fresh fish from Cawleen ( not too sure of spelling, sorry Cawleen ) Saturday is now fish day in our home both for lunch and dinner. I was never a lover of monk fish but after tasting Cawleen's I have been converted big time. All of the fish is delightful. What can one say about Jim;s meat except that it is wonderful to know where and how our animals are fed and cared for by real farmers. Jim. Ray and Anthony are a great asset to the market, nothing is a bother to them. The veggies are terrific, and keep fresh so much longer than supermarket ones. What can we say about the Spud Man only that he is THE MAN. The girls in the pantry are great in fact it would be hard to pick out any individual as the market is a very open and friendly place to spend a couple of hours, I love the tables and the play area for the children. It makes a very happy atmosphere. Keep up the good work and roll on Saturday
One good thing about the market that is not food is the Charity Book stall. As a readerholic I love this facility and it helps Charities. I love the opportunity to taste the different options before I buy¬
Just to say I found out about the Market purely by a chance programme on TV3. I have paid numerous visits and each time I enjoy it more. The value and quality is excellent and it is important to support our own grown and reared!
Also I have found the coffee shop an excellent way to pass away an hour browsing with a beautiful coffee and scone.
Well done and keep up the hard work
