I live to cook. Fresh ingredients are absolutely essential if you want your food to taste good.
I am regularly disappointed when I buy spices from shops because they taste and /or smell like cardboard.
Luckily for me, my son, Hugh, a chef, has started his own business (Hughsli) and is now buying sufficient quantities of herbs and spices to be able to source these at great prices from his favourite distributor. Some native herbs and bushfoods he is able to buy direct from the grower.
And often I piggyback on his orders so that:
- I have the freshest, best quality herbs and spices coming in all the time
- I can buy all my herbs and spices at affordable prices
This allows me to sell herbs and spices at The Cygnet Market at prices that are often half that of other shops.
Of course, the other benefit is that when you shop at The Cygnet Market you can actually smell the products and customers often follow their noses to The Garden Shed and Pantry stall.
All of my products are also available most days from 1pm at The Garden Shed and Pantry, Cygnet
Ohlalala! Life is good. Get there fast and then take it slow.
