Fresh produce at your local market

Fresh produce at your local market

There’s nothing quite like tasty fresh produce from local farmers and luckily for us, there’s an abundance of it at the Howick market every Saturday from 8am-12:30pm.

If you fancy a bit of seafood, head on down and grab a taste of the Black Shag oyster from Mahurangi. If you prefer something with a bit more of a bite, citrus is in full swing too with mandarins and limes available direct from local growers.

The cold nights aren’t leaving us any time soon and so Ready to Heat and Eat meals make the perfect new addition to the market’s offerings.

Try one of the delicious Italian lasagnes in beef, chicken and vegetarian fl avours.

These mouth-watering meals are also available gluten-free. Prefer to make your own lasagne?

There’s a range of gluten-free pasta and pasta sauces.

If warm meals just aren’t enough to get you happy in winter, grab a pair of merino and possum socks, gloves or moccasin slippers to stay stylish and comfortable as the temperature
continues to drop.

While you’re there, try out some of the natural creams and moisturisers, or the natural beeswax wrap which makes the perfect environmentally friendly alternative to glad wrap.

Each year, the Howick market attracts local students participating in the Young Enterprise Scheme where they design and market a product.

The market is an ideal place! Check out their amazing innovative ideas and support some local budding entrepreneurs.

Keep an eye out for the cooking demonstrations coming soon over the next few weeks – there’ll be chefs creating yummy ideas using some of that fresh market produce.
