March madness!!

At all our markets in March we are going to be offering discounts on our baskets. We have a pile of 2nd baskets and discontinued styles and they are taking space in the warehouse so it is time to move them on!!

Pop in a visit us at the markets this month for a great bargain.

 

Sustainables

Whilst baskets are the perfect way to shop environmentally. We do need additional bags for our fruit and veg.  After our recent trip to New Zealand we came across Helen and her business The Rubbish Whisperer. We bought a load of her great and colourful bags and they have been selling like hotcakes. The beauty of these bags is they are all made in NZ and are very strong.

 

 The Rubbish Whisperer Reusable Rubbish pack of 5.

 Each bag can hold over 1.5kg of fruit or vegetables. Packs of 5 $25 at the markets.
