Awards and accolades for Grey Lynn stallholde​rs

The TASTE Farmers Market Awards, which were held on Sunday 1st July, recognised three stars traders in our midst at the Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market: Paris Berlin Organic Bakery, the Salmon Man and new comer to Grey Lynn Relish the Thought.

The awards were judged by top chefs Nadia Lim, Jonny Schwass and Julie Biuso. The judges tasted and sampled an array of products from Farmers Markets from all over the country and judged three of our Grey Lynn stallholders as stand-outs in their categories.
