The Ooooby Stall at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market is moving to La Cigale, Parnell on Sunday the 1st of May.
With winter in the wings we have needed to make the tough decision to move to a larger market in order to keep the Ooooby Stall viable over the slow seasons.
We hope to return to the Grey Lynn Farmers Market as the seasons turn and we also understand that the market may not have a space for us then. This is a risk we need to take.
The regret of this decision is the disappointment to our wonderful Grey Lynn customers who cannot justify the travel to Parnell to buy Ooooby food. We promise to work at bringing an Ooooby Stall back to Grey Lynn and in the meantime, perhaps the Ooooby Box could be another way to get locally grown food?
To those of you who live in or around Parnell, we look forward to being in your neighbourhood soon. Come and buy local and homegrown food, and, if you have a garden with some extra food, pop it into a basket and bring it down to barter or sell at our table.
Kelvin, who is taking the reigns from Pania, has some fabulous ideas including "Ooooby Soops" for those cold Sunday mornings made from the fresh local harvest of the day.
We will also be looking for some helping hands as we get started with the intention of building a bit of a market stall crew. So if you love this sort of thing and have some spare time on Sunday mornings then let us know.
