We are very lucky to have them at our market as they are so passionate about producing a quality product and have full control of their free range pork products from paddock to gate as they own the pig farm and also the butchery. The have amped up production of their coppa to meet a new demand due to this recognition so make sure to visit their stall early this Saturday to get your share of their fantastic coppa.

The second stall holder to win was Kvas Brod.
Kvas Brod won an award for their Brod Brown - brewed kvas with cold-brew coffee, cinnamon and cloves. Smooth, deep, refreshing and invigorating.
The Kvas Company is New Zealand's first kvas brewer. Kvas is a traditional Slavic drink brewed by a lactic fermentation process using a starter made from rye bread flavoured with coriander seed and sultanas. It is a low-sugar, highly refreshing and probiotic beverage with complex flavours.
Our Brod Traditional Kvas line is made up of Russian style kvas with traditional flavourings such as lemon and berries.
Our Brod Original Kvas line is something different, unique combinations of kvas and other flavours - teas, cacao, spices, and seasonal fruits - that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
We start by making the bread and use only natural ingredients, organic and local where possible, to lovingly make the very best product we can.
If you haven't tried it yet pop to their stall this weekend, pass on your congratulations and try some.
