ROCKY Ridge Farmer’s Market is celebrating yet another milestone with their second birthday.
“What an amazing year it has been; there have been so many ups and downs but all in all it has been good,” said Desia Holmes, co-founder of the market, extending her thanks to everyone who has supported the market over the months and years.
At the market one finds delicious treats such as muffins, fudge brownies, cakes, lemon meringues and milk tarts along with a huge variety of home-made biscuits, koeksusters and rusks. There are also value-for-money meals which include quiches, lasagnes, babotie and soups.
Also available are homemade chutneys, carefully blended to add “oomph” to any meal.
The “Whirly Bird Man” m a ke s colourful creatures from brightly coloured garden signs and wooden children’s furniture, as well as other fun things for the garden. Fresh fruit and vegetables are also available, supplied by various stallholders, as well as pot plants, succulents and garden plants.
There is a collectables’ stall as well as bric-a-brac, where you may find that definite “must have” item.
Leatherwork is yet another feature at the market where you can find various leather belts, bags, hats and made-to-order items like dice cups and holders and made-to-fit moccasins. There is plenty to enjoy at the Rocky Ridge Farmer’s Market for the entire family. With a playground area available, kids can play while their parents relax with a meal or coffee.
“We have all enjoyed it and will continue to do so in the years ahead.
“We thank all for their support including our stallholders and Reay and Dee Squires who have so kindly allowed the market to take place at Rocky Ridge fa r m , ” Holmes said.
