Farm­ers’ mar­ket in the pipe­line

Central Leader - - News -

A new farm­ers’ mar­ket is start­ing in Grey Lynn next year and or­gan­is­ers are rais­ing funds at Satur­day’s Grey Lynn Park Fes­ti­val.

Project man­ager Vin­cent Dickie says they are looking for lo­cal peo- ple to do­nate cit­rus fruit which can be turned into fresh juice and sold at the fes­ti­val.

Mar­ket or­gan­is­ers need up to 50 crates of or­anges and lemons and are happy to col­lect them.

A fes­ti­val stall will be set up with a so­lar­pow­ered juicer and hay bales where peo­ple can buy the juice and re­lax.

Skilled com­mu­nity mem­bers are also be­ing sought for the mar­ket’s com­mit­tee.

An in­for­ma­tion evening will be held next Wed­nes­day at 7.30pm at the Grey Lynn Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

To have fruit col­lected, email fruit@glfm.co.nz or call Win­nie Leni­han on 360-7265.
