Botany and Ormiston Times : Howick and Botany Times Wednesday August 27 2014
10 — Howick and Botany Times, Wednesday, August 27, 2014 www.times.co.nz Ahoy! There’s a taste of France returning to your neighbourhood every week whatever the weather. After a three market break for refur- bishment, the popular, boutique French-style market at Pine Har- bour Marina returns this week- end. Launched in 2009, the weekly market runs every Saturday morning, 8am-12pm, rain, hail or shine with a popular Traders & Makers market for vintage and craft products on the first Satur- day of every month. “We’ve had a rough patch of wet weather over the winter so it was the perfect opportunity to briefly close, have a well deserved rest and re-paint and re-organise prior to a busy summer,” says market director Fiona Hugues. “Our weekly vendors have appreciated the holiday and are geared up with new products for a great new season ahead. “There’s plenty happening at the marina with a lot of new devel- opments in progress. So, with the additional population, the market will continue to grow and be a weekly, ‘must visit’ destination for fresh and quality ingredients in a stunning waterside location.” Alongside regular offerings of fresh, seasonal farm produce, cheeses, award-winning bacons, jams, vinaigrettes and new gour- met products, visitors will find delights such as gob-smackingly good macarons, friands, eclairs and delicate madeleines all made gluten-free and with free-range eggs. French tarteflette and soupe du jour will be hot, ready to eat or packed to take home or visitors can choose a spicy Prego steak, bacon or boerewors roll. Genuine French crepes and galettes with homemade salted caramel or chocolate are an immensely popular choice for breakfast, or choose from the huge array of fresh-baked – real French patisserie & boulangerie on offer, baked that very morn- ing. A new range of seasonal, French-baked delicacies will also debut on Saturday alongside pure French traditional sandwiches with flavours such as rotisserie chicken, salmon and nicoise which are a delicious, take-away lunch choice for local golfers. Also new to the vendor line up is the exclusive launch of The Fur Baby Deli & Barkery range with treats such as Salmon, Kumara & Flaxseed Cookies or Chicken, Pumpkin & Rosemary Jerky so the many canine market visitors will be well catered for. Kids will be excited to learn the unique Fresh Market Pup- pet Theatre will run a marionette show every Saturday at 10am, weather permitting. French puppet farmers Claude and Collette Renault are back with some new characters and their stinky impolite rabbit called, Jojo, to disgust and delight the little market visitors.
