Final Market for 2018

Well the year is nearly done, all we have left now, is to get everything in order for the Christmas break. This weekend will be a busy one at the markets in Yeppoon on Saturday, Gladstone Saturday afternoon and then Rockhampton on Sunday. We will have hams available for collection for those that have ordered them. We ended up doing about 40 hams this year, which is more than the last couple of years but less than our record year, which was 70! I did a few extra to cover late orders, and these went very quickly. So if you are reading this and you think you ordered one, but now don't want it, please let me know and I can sell it to someone else!

Yeppoon Community Markets at the Show grounds: 6am to 10am Saturday, 16th December
Gladstone: Benaraby Turnoff: 3pm to 4.30pm (please stagger this time!)
Rockhampton Kern Arcade Carpark Markets: 6am to 12pm, Sunday 17th December

As I write this, I am not sure when we start back at the markets. Our normal weekend would be the 6th and 7th January, however I'm still confirming whether we can get our meat processed in time for this. I will hopefully know by this weekend, otherwise I'll let everyone know early in the new year.

We will only have beef and porky products this market. We had a quad bike malfunction when we needed to get the sheep and goats in, so they ended up getting a reprieve.

REMINDER: There is always some meat in That Wholefood Place in Berserker Street, Rockhampton, if you get caught out and don't have any meat. It is frozen, but won't take long to defrost. Or you could do what I've done and just pick up one of their take away curry and rice.

We are so lucky to have a shop in town like That Wholefood Place! I know that I'm biased, because Kate has kindly stocked our meat there, but it's all the other bits and pieces that when added together make a one stop shop. And you can have lunch while you are there doing your weekly shop - how much better can it get. There is no other cafe in town that uses organic/free range produce. And it's not just the produce, all the ingredient items are organic. Can anywhere in Rockhampton boast that everything is ethically grown and sourced? I doubt it. The best part is that the food is not even expensive!

I recently had That Benny and it was really tasty! The sauce was made in store and so good......

If you support That Wholefood Place, you are also supporting us and other small, local businesses. Locals have to look out for each other, that's what community is all about!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for the support they have given us this year. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you, so THANK YOU!!

We wish you all a Safe and Happy Christmas break. If you are travelling, take care.

We look forward to seeing you at this market coming and then again next year!
