Organic farmer Glenyce Creighton has one of the markets’ most eclectic stalls. Here you’ll find everything from chokoes to custard apples, as well as some incredible local produce you may never have known existed.
Here’s a sample of some of her produce and some tips on how best to enjoy it. Free range chicken, duck and turkey eggs: Duck eggs are a secret every baker should know about. They’ll make your sponges rise higher than you thought possible and your other baked goods moist and light.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try the turkey eggs. They have a mild flavour that’s similar to chicken eggs. Loofahs: These vine-growing plants are the ultimate eco-friendly cleaning or body sponge. Excellent for exfoliating in the shower. Store it upright and allow to drain between uses to keep it in top condition.
Daikon radish: A long white radish that’s milder than most but still a little peppery. Pickled daikon is a very popular accompaniment to Japanese food, while raw daikon gives a lovely crunch to salads. Horned melon: These spiky little fellas are not as scary as they look. Cut off their outer spines and you‘ll find a fruit with a mild taste similar to cucumber.
