This indoor market, held in the historic barn building has been operating since 1999. It is promoted as a gourmet produce and artisan market, and it is.
With fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables available, you will also find a vast selection of superior foods including organic breads, biscuits, jams, preserves and sauces, olive oils, pies, fudge, honey, olives, meats, chocolates, fresh-ground coffee and beans, teas, ice-cream, fruit vinegars, homemade pasta, free-range eggs, locally-grown flowers and so much more.
Your gourmet experience starts as you approach the barn with several vendors displaying their offerings outdoors. Regular stalls here are fresh locally grown vegetables and sausages, burgers and my favourite, huge scones. The bigger the scone, the more jam and cream you can put on them.
Freshly cooked goodies available here as you enter.
As you exit the barn at the other end, the sound of music fills the air. Not loud, but very soothing. It comes from the Black Kites who perform regularly at the market. It is a joy to see and hear them.
On the way out, I purchased a huge scone to take home to go under the Cunliffe & Waters strawberry jam I previously purchased. They have a large range of jams, preserves and pickles, all made in Coldstream. They may be expensive compared to supermarket products, but you can't compare Rolls Royces to Holdens. Definitely gourmet and delicious.
