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.

Hi Earl. This Sunday we will not be at La Cigale Earl. We'll be meeting with some growers to discuss best options moving forward. Stay tuned and we'll let you know when we know.

Hi Pete. Is the Cigale stall open tomorrow? I have some choko plants in pots, also some aloe vera, some strawberry and a few others that I'd be interested to put out. Who is running the show these days?

Hi Justine.  Apologies for the slow response.  I hope you made it to the stall?  If not it is on every Sunday so you can just turn up with your food and the guys will let you know how it works from there.

Hello All:


On the subject of 'soops', we plan to make pumpkin soup to feature again this year at our quarterly market on Sunday, 22 May, but need another volunteer who has a 'chef's certificate' (per council health requirements to help us prepare.  Last year we prepped about 16 pumpkins and made about 20 litres.  It would only take a couple hours the Saturday previous (with several volunteers here, of course!)...anybody out there who would be willing to help us?

Choko time ! I am making it my mission to convert all those people who suffereed overcooked waterry chokoes in their childhood .They are delicious in stirfries ,great addition to soups and cubes in curries ,also fab when roasted .A friend even eats them raw  ,or steamed then sprinkled with  soy sauce .they make good pickle too . And they grow like a weed when not much else is growing in the garden .They also store well . Give them a try .

Ooh you're moving to my hood! Exciting! I may be able to help out some Sunday mornings (please keep me in the loop) and will definitely take up the opportunity to sell/barter produce through the stall.

I'd be keen to help out on the stall.
