So good to acknowledge the organic growers at the market. So love these farmers. Many people think the Mullum farmers market is all organic so it’s good to see these wonderful people listed to make it clearer for shoppers. Love Mullum farmers market. My fave place to be at 7 am Friday mornings. Xxxx

Did you know more than half of all cut flowers sold in Australia are imported?

For roses, the figure could be closer to 90 percent, according to a recent ABC report.

‘I find it really sad’ says local grower and market stallholder Briana Atkin (pictured above), of Duranbah-based vegetable and flower farm, Jumping Red Ant.

‘The quality of our local flowers is so much better’.

The good news is, in the same way that we are becoming more conscious about our food and where it comes from, there’s a shift happening in the flower industry towards local and sustainable.

With all that has been going on this year, demand for local cut flowers at the farmers markets has been particularly strong, says Briana. People are keen to support local business, as well as bring some beauty into their lives during a tough time: ‘Flowers make people happy,’ she said.

Customers also appreciate the longevity of local flowers. ‘People are like - ‘I’ve still got your roses - they’ve been there for three weeks.’’

The next few months as we head into spring is boom time for local blooms, and Briana is especially excited about a new selection of striking proteas - South African and Australian natives - that will be on the stall this year.

‘We planted them in 2017 - they take two to three years to start flowering and now the first generation of them are just starting to come out in full force,’ she says.

Also coming up on the stall is a flush of spring roses: ‘They’ve just been cut back so they’re fresh from new bushes. They’re at best at this time of year - the head size is huge and the cooler weather means the colour is popping.’

Other varieties on the stall in spring will be ranunculus, which come in a stunning palette of bold and vivid colours, anemones and pretty, delicate straw flowers.

‘The stall is going to look amazing,’ Briana says.

I love your flowers and I also love that you don't put them into plastic anymore. Thank you

This is Luc, the man who each week brings us the fantastic product that is Byron Bay Tempeh
.
Luc and his partner Sarah started making their tempeh in 2011, when they realised there was a lack of vegetarian protein options available at the markets. It was popular from Day 1 and they’ve been with us ever since.

Unlike traditional Indonesian tempeh, which is made with soybeans, Sarah and Luc make theirs with other legumes. There are three varieties - Chickpea; Split Pea and Brown Rice, and Fava Bean and Wakame (a type of seaweed)

‘We’re not anti-soy, we just wanted something different,' says Sarah.

'Vegetarian protein sources are traditionally soy-based - and it can be hard to find non-soy.'

To make the tempeh, the chickpeas, split peas and fava beans are inoculated with a culture (that Sarah grows and harvests herself) and then fermented - a process that gives tempeh its distinct flavour, and its health benefits.

'Being fermented, it's a really good probiotic,' Sarah says.

‘The fermenting process makes it pre-digested so you can absorb the nutrients really easily.’

All ingredients, except the fava beans, are organic and locally Australian grown.

SARAH’S TOP TEMPEH TIPS: For those new to tempeh, Sarah suggests trying it in a Tempeh Spaghetti Bolognaise (recipe in our stories today) ☝️which we can happily report was eaten by our picky child/teenage recipe testers 🙂.

You can also use it in burgers, or fry then break up and sprinkle on salads (it’s like little crunchy croutons) for a protein hit.
.
To prepare, slice the tempeh, heat a generous amount of oil, then fry for about one minute each side. Sprinkle with some salt to balance the fermented flavour.

We did it again! Thrilled that we've been named as a national finalist in the Outstanding Farmers Market category of the delicious. Australia Produce Awards 2020 - for the second year running!

We're one of only three farmers markets Australia-wide to make the finals, the others being @kiamafarmersmarket and Alphington Farmers Market in Victoria.

All that's been going on during this crazy year has highlighted just how important our local farmers are to our community. A big thank you to all our farmers and producers for all of the passion and hard work they continue to put into growing, making, baking and creating such amazing local food for our community. YOU ROCK!!

And of course, a big shout out to all of our loyal customers who have continued to show such amazing support for our market. WE LOVE YOU!!
