These days, the fruit and vegetables available on our supermarket shelves barely change from season to season. It used to be that avocados were a summer vegetable and mushrooms a winter one. Now you can buy either whenever you want them, so we eat food that has been picked before it ripe, stored many months before it is sold and even travelled long distances to get where it is going.
Quite simply though, the best time to buy produce is when it is in season! It is more flavoursome, more nutritional and better for the environment.
Inspired by the flavours of seasonal food and reinvigorated by the concept that as the season changes so does the bounty; Pfeiffer Wines have decided to host four seasonal farmers markets each year, celebrating what is available and how good things taste……in season!
The markets, held in the wineries idyllic grounds will also celebrate the passionate local growers and farmers of the region, who breed or grow for flavour and variety, not necessarily for uniformity of size or varietals with good travel dexterity and a long shelf life.
Our markets also provide consumers with the opportunity to meet and talk with the farmers who grow their food.
