Tucker’s Cornish Pasties
Made the traditional way, these Cornish Pasties are SO FRESH. Available in sweet flavours such as fruit pasties or in savoury flavours including bacon and egg. Gently heated at the Market so you can enjoy them with coffee or a refreshing Market drink.
DD’s Dutch Croquettes
Authentic Dutch beef Croquettes made by Deana. The inside filling of the delicate crumbed outside is a creamy beef. Moist and very tender, cooked on site at the Market. Served on their own or in a bun with ‘the works’ which includes salad and a dressing. Deana also cooks Bitter Ballen which is a round beef croquette, but in the size of a golf ball. Great for party platters. Both of these items are available frozen for you to take home and cook.
We harvest macadamia nuts from over 940 macadamia trees, for much of the year, to ensure that you, our customers, receive the freshest and tastiest macadamia nuts available in New Zealand. We grow five varieties of macadamia nuts, all carefully selected for superior nutrition and flavour of the nuts. All nut varieties are GM free (and they’re gluten free too). Our macadamia nuts are only harvested when the tree decides they are mature enough to drop, then they are collected regularly and dried promptly. We do not chemically induce nut drop, (and yes we are serious about sustainability utilising waste heat to dry the nuts.) We have a wide and unique array of macadamia products, both sweet and spicy designed for all palates. In addition, our premium macadamia liqueur has been created with our customer in mind, to be consumed deliciously on its own, in cocktails, or with ice cream and desserts.

Milly’s Fine Foods
As the seasons unfold, nature’s bounty is always overflowing in my kitchen. As I follow the seasons I am able to make you all kinds of relish, chutneys, jams and other preserves. Tamarillo season will soon be here and I will be busy creating all types of delights including vinaigrettes. Where possible, I source the fruits, that I use from the Market’s stallholders. Keep it in the “family”!! I have a wide range of gluten free products. As I keep my range freshly made, this eliminates the need of preservatives. Please be sure to ask me about my SPECIALS!! and my gift packs of combinations to suit the palate.
The Hungarian Artisan Company
Attila brings to the Market the flavours of his home country Hungary. Handed down traditional family recipes of sausage making using free range pork. Dry cured and smoked, the sausage comes in different flavours such as Procini & Mushroom, Spicy Kolbasz, pepper and fennel and then a chilli hot range just to awaken your taste buds. The sausages comes in different sizes and hence varying prices. Samples are available to help you decide what suits your tastes.
It is not just cheeses that you will find, but dry cured smoked bacon in many flavours. Peter is at the Tauranga Farmers Market every Saturday. Rain or shine he is ready to help you with samples to make a choice to suit your palate or kitchen needs.
The first of the 2013 olive oil press of the Koroneiki olive variety is available now. Koroneiki is a Greek variety and is harvested green/yellowish green to avoid losses to birds. The oil has a peppery aspect due to the “unripe” fruit and leafy tones and is quite fragrant. The oil is green and still cloudy. Typically for very fresh oil. Over time the tiny fruit flesh particles causing the cloudiness will settle and the oil will clear. This cloudiness is therefore sought after by connoisseurs as it is a sign of freshness. Green fruit produces higher levels of anti-oxidants, an important health factor. Anti-oxidants also help to prevent the oil from going “bad” when heated and extend its shelf life.
The grove and pressing operation are BioGro organic certified, covering both the olive oils and table olives.
Ash’s Bacon and Egg Buns
You will find Ashley busy cooking her Pirongia Bacon, Nikki’s Eggs (find their stall next door) and a locally baked bun throughout the morning of the Market until she has sold out.
Linking in with Market produce you can find her at the Pirongia Bacon stall site which she runs as well for Brian of Pirongia Bacon.
Her buns are baked fresh ready for the Saturday morning Market, hence you need to be early to get them before they are sold out. Problem solved breakfast at the Market. Just add coffee or even a smoothie from Just Blend.
Want that Aioli touch as well spread over that mouth watering bacon and eggs, then that’s no problem either.
