Happy 2018 I have had a wonderful break, relaxing for nearly 3 weeks at my rusty, quaint, fabulous, old beach shack at Balgowan, on the Yorke Peninsula in S.A. Check out some of my holiday photos below…. Now I am back and ready for a new year of nourishing you all with freshly milled, organic wholefoods and ingredients sourced directly by me from farmers and millers in Tasmania and Australia. I very much look forward to welcoming you again to my home shop and Cygnet Market stall. Opening times are on the photo at the top of this newsletter.
March Sourdough and Cultured Butter Workshop Come to my kitchen and make with me the simplest and best bread for your body and taste buds. Learn about a range of grains and why they must be freshly milled. Create a batch of cultured butter to take home. I offer plenty of tastings and answer all your questions. Read more below….
Pat and Lina’s Olives Not every wholefoods shop owner takes time off from her holiday, on a day of 45C, to visit the olive grower and pick up buckets of olives so that their customers will not miss out at the first market of the year! Read more below….
Shani’s Kitchen Crafts; can you help? Shani helps me at the first market of each month and for some time she has been making fantastic pot holders (which always sell out), using the back pockets of jeans and recycled fabrics but she has run out of pockets! If you have some old jeans and could cut off the legs (which she doesn’t need) and just bring the tops, including the back pockets, that would be fabulous. Please bring to the market or leave on my front verandah. For every 3 pairs you donate at the market, Shani will give you one of her beautiful, hand made soaps.
Nutrient Dense? It seems to be the latest catch-phrase … nutrient dense…. but what is it and does it matter? Read more below….
Hugh’s lamingtons and lemon tarts Again you would be best to be to the market early to get some of Hugh’s very popular lamingtons and lemon tarts at my stall. I have not have any since before Christmas and cannot wait!!

Square eftpos The Garden Shed and Pantry now has credit card, debit card, chip and contactless payment facilities! Square is a simple and cheap system suited to every form of transaction. It may be cheap but it is not free, so I would still prefer cash but no longer will there be any inconvenience if you do not have enough cash with you!
