Market News

Over the holidays, Julia Smith from Urban Digs was injured by one of their boars at the farm. We’re told that her recovery is going slow but steady. Due to the injury, Urban Digs will unfortunately have to cancel their January Hastings Park dates with hopes to be back at the market in February. Urban Digs shoppers can order online or pickup from our Saturday Nat Bailey market. Wishing Julia a speedy recovery!
