‘Eat my friends’ might sound a little strange coming from a vegetarian but MONA market’s Creative Director Kirsha Kaechele reckons if you’re going to eat something, you should know how, and from where, your food has been sourced.

Think also fresh. Starting Saturday 17 January 2015, you’ll find food at the market that doesn’t suffer from commercial overexposure. The market has an eye to showcasing new produce. The first market for the year will cater for big crowds however, so food and drink curator, Jo Cook, is also bringing back some old favourites. The twist is that they’ll be offering something exclusive to Saturday’s market.

Moorilla’s Moo Brew will feature. Sourdough donut maker, Lady Hester will do a chocolate and dark ale cake with crème fraiche and young berries. Nicholls Rivulet Organic Farm will do a dark ale beef pie.

Vegan foodies, Aaron and Renee of Conscious Lifestyle, will be there with their seasonal organic fruit. For the first market it will be mostly in a smoothie format, with Richmond milk and their own honey, because they came off second best with this week’s torrential rain.

There’s more food of course, but we’ll leave those stalls up to your own path of discovery.

A marker for the obliteration of the apple industry, which saw the grubbing out of around 2000 apple orchards, and traditions and livelihoods lost or at least stunted in the decades past. Now the remaining 20 or so orchards left in the Huon Valley have found a niche, it’s artisan and local and creating a cider trail.

The first market is on Saturday 17 January 2015, 12 noon until 5pm. From then on, the market will be held on Sundays until Easter because Sunday is the day of rest and you’re encouraged to chill and enjoy your time on MONA’s green.
