hello, farmy friends
Changes are afoot. With the lifting of restrictions (early) to Stage Three today, there are some updates to how we operate at the market, as well as some things that will stay the same for the time being.
what does stage three mean for the market?
While physical distancing wherever practicable is still very important to be mindful of, we can now accommodate more customers in the market with the allowance of 2sqm per person. We invite families + small groups back to shop together, and the Grub Hub is BACK in action! More on that below.
Good hand hygiene is a must, and we’ll be providing hand sanitiser stations to use on your way in – we’re all very used to this in venues we enter by now. We are also capped on numbers, so if you can shop solo please consider it.
Please be respectful of any individual Covid measures our Producers or staff ask of you while shopping too, like not touching items you aren’t buying and queuing distantly from others.
breakfast is back, baby!
We’re just a tad excited to announce the re-opening of our Grub Hub!
Like Christmas, Stage Three’s come early so that means we’ll be reunited this Sunday with Seoul Street’s bao buns, Rough Rice’s congee bowls, Kaki Lima’s Indonesian noodle soups + curries, Senor Frijoles’ hot empanadas aaaaand (drum roll please…) brand new Grub Hubber: Yeastie Beastie Dougnuts!!
The reputation for Katie’s gnarly, hot fried sourdough doughnuts precedes her: dusted in cinnamon sugar, or smothered in lemon drizzle, local jams and proper custard, these beastly good sweets will be making waves at Farmy twice a month.
Heads up – just like the market, our Grub Hub is going to look a little different for a while. Physical distancing is still important + numbers are limited in the space. Some tables + chairs will be set up in Mathers Lane instead – make your way there once you’ve got your brunch!
don’t feed the ducks…
This week we’re loving the very excellent Bread Vodka from the boys of Endangered Distilling Co… who also operate the Tasmanian Juice Press! This delicious vodka has been distilled from local, waste bread destined for landfill (as well as being bottled in recycled, sterilised bottles to minimise waste one step further…). The spirit is smooth and balanced, with a hint of sweetness that pairs oh-so beautifully with their Bloody Mary mix….!
Georgetown Seafoods are back in action with delicious fresh fish this week – fish curry cravings are real, so try T and D Curries green masala: this paste is a magnificent combination of fresh herbs and aromatic, freshly ground whole spices that goes perfectly with a firm white fleshed fish like ling or dory.
Big congratulations are due to Martino and Sofia this week too – the famous pasta making pair from Osteria at Petty Sessions just became a trio with the arrival of their baby boy! They’ll have a brief break from the market while they all get acquainted… ❤️
