We’re back with our first Spring edition of The Meat Room newsletter for 2018.
It’s festival season, and we’ll be hitting the road and heading to a multitude of markets and festivals over the next few months. Find out where below and come and join the fun!
Our first Lancefield Farmers Market
–Saturday September 22
Looking to get your hands on some of our tasty treats? Good news! We’ll be at the Lancefield Farmer’s Market this Saturday!
The Lancefield Farmer’s Market is a relatively large market with around 50-60 stalls depending on the season, and provides a wide range of fresh produce from around the area. If you aren’t already familiar with the market, it is set-up in the middle of the town - Centre plantation, High Street, Lancefield (View Map). You can find more details on The Lancefield Market Facebook Page.
We’ll have our small batch salami on the day. It will be our first time with a stall at this market, so make sure to pop-by and say hi!
The Victorian Salami Festival - Saturday October 6th
You’ll enjoy a day filled with fun, laughter, salami demonstrations, live music, amazing food, awesome wine and, of course, Il Salame Perfetto (The Perfect Salami)! Which region produces the finest Salami, the north or the south? The debate has been raging for centuries, and you’ll have a front row seat as a battle plays out.
