The Hunter is about to experience a different style of 5-star event with the launch of Hunter Valley Gourmet Market – an authentic food and lifestyle market dedicated to giving locals direct and regular access to premium produce. The Hunter Valley Gourmet Market will focus on showcasing only the finest food and artisans at one of the Hunter’s most awarded wineries, First Creek Wines. The market will be held on the third Saturday of every month from 9am – 3pm, with the next event being held on June 15.
The Hunter Valley Gourmet Market means locals will no longer have to travel far to frequently purchase quality produce and products. Taking advantage of their central location in Pokolbin and the ability to offer customers some of the Hunter’s finest wines as a part of their experience, First Creek Wines aims for the market to become a sought-after destination event for the region and of course, one the whole family can enjoy.
“At First Creek, we are always looking at new ways to create interest in the region, and we are really excited to offer such a great initiative that can help do that. The Hunter has such wonderful producers and artisans, and we are so pleased that we get the opportunity to showcase not only our wines but the amazing produce the region has to offer,” said Greg Silkman, Manager Director of First Creek Wines.
Entry is free, and a combination of new and regular stallholders will feature each month that will cover a broad spectrum of outstanding produce from the essential to the indulgent. The market will look to introduce interactive elements over time, including demonstrations and classes to keep the event fresh and lively. Regular updates will be available via the social media pages so consumers can keep up to date on all that’s happening at each market.
The Hunter Valley Gourmet Market is a new and exciting initiative that looks forward to bringing the local community and visitors together to experience a first-class market right in the heart of the Hunter. For more information visit www.firstcreekwines.com.au
