The Wingham Farmers’ Market is held on the first Saturday each month at Wingham’s Showground on Gloucester Road between 8am and noon.
Our next market is on Saturday, October 6.
With all the adverse publicity going on about honey, it’s the right time to feature Gilchrist Honey as our stall holder for October.
The honey from the owners of Gilchrist, Don and Laura, is pure, unadulterated honey. Don is a registered beekeeper and meets all the requirements necessary for that registration.
Their honey is fresh from the hive with absolutely no additives.
If you want to enjoy the benefits derived from honey, its purity is what you should consider before buying. Sadly, there is a lot of adulteration of honey, which makes it not real but it is frequently sold as the real thing. Because of the high demand for honey resulting from its medicinal and nutrient value, many companies have taken advantage of this demand in a move to make an extra buck by selling fake honey.
You’ll get the “real deal” from Gilchrist Honey!
If you can’t get to our market and want to be sure it’s real honey, it’s a good plan to only buy your honey at real farmers’ markets. You’ll also find beeswax for sale if you want to make your own beeswax wraps for your food or make your own lotions.
It’s not just honey and beeswax, Don and Laura also sell many different types of citrus as well as some well-established trees ready to plant in your garden.
On Saturday, come and do your regular shop for real honey, fresh vegetables, avocados, macadamias, delicious jams, marmalades and pickles, free range eggs and pasture raised pork.
There are stalls with beautiful handmade jewellery and beautiful dresses for little girls, Bec will be back with her seedlings ready for your Spring planting and can give you advice on plants, pests and what to do about them in a chemical free way.
Have a coffee, something yum to eat, while you listen to music. The Choir Girls will be back performing again due to popular demand and Chris and Rita from Upper Lansdowne will be making their first appearance at our market.
Don’t forget if you have something to sell at the markets, new stallholders are always welcome. Direct stall holder enquiries to Annette on 6550 7213.
Don’t forget if you have any excess produce but not enough set up your own stall, you can drop it at the community stall to be sold on your behalf. There is more information online on Facebook www.facebook.com/winghamfarmersmarket
See you at Wingham Showground this Saturday from 8am to noon.
