New Brighton Farmers Market has always been a magical place to get your weekly produce after a morning surf or swim, and now you can pack more health into your day with a visit to welcome newcomer, Smoothie Operator.
Bronwyn Yeldham established her business at Murwillumbah Farmers Markets four years ago while she was working part time as a caterer. Now the business has grown into a full-time role and she is joined by her partner Andrew Jaggers and helper, Siobhan, and expanding into Byron Shire.
‘I worked in catering and religiously went to my local farmers markets for my fresh produce, I would then come home and juice it or make smoothies. I just saw a space where I could combine my two loves – I could make my delicious, nutritious drinks and be a real part of the farmers market community’.
Using recipes she has tried and tested at home, Bronwyn delivers cold pressed juices as well as smoothies using plant-based milk-like organic oat, coconut or almond. She adjusts her menu seasonally depending on what she can source locally.
‘We use the freshest and the best produce we can get our hands on and prioritise organic, so it is almost always from farmers in the local area.’
‘We are passionate about what we do and very proud of our product. Everything is made with love and dedication to health’.
The most popular product sold at Smoothie Operator is, by far, the green juice: ‘Customers love that it is such an easy way to pack nutrients into their day’.
Don’t miss though the blueberry smoothie, made with local Tallogum blueberries and banana, pepitas, hemp seed, maple syrup, mint and coconut milk.
‘I love being at the farmers’ markets, having my feet on the ground and being face-to-face with the community’, says Bronwyn.
