What’s at Nat Bailey – Nov 28
It looks like the cold snap may be sticking around for another weekend – at least we’ll get to enjoy a clear sky, some sunshine and an abundance of local food! Join us at the Nat Bailey Winter Market this Saturday from 10-2pm. We’ll have plenty to keep you warm including coffee, tea and hot chocolate while you roam the market and hot lunch options from one of our many food trucks onsite – don’t forget your reusable mugs!

Veggie of the Week – Persimmon
As seen in the picture above – the persimmon is in fact a fruit. Typically tomato-shaped with the crunch of a crisp apple! The persimmon can be eaten raw, added to salad, salsa, jams, or made into a dessert. It’s full of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese and an excellent source of fiber – making it a powerhouse in nutrition. You can find persimmons at the Nat Bailey Winter Market this Saturday at the Sole Food Street Farms stall. They might even have samples…
