Trade Day January 2018

Just a brief note of thanks for all those who supported the January Trade Day with both stock and buying. We had four more punters along than in 2017, building on a trend that has been apparent for the past couple of years. The quality of the stock was terrific as always, switching from Christmas lines last month to flowering shrubs and trees for planting now. Those traders there reported strong sales with some reasonable forward orders.

Coffee Cart

As you will have noticed, the coffee cart has been in one spot (the lake end) for a few months now. We all enjoyed it previously when it moved around different positions around the market, as it draws a crowd. So with this in mind, Nan has negotiated with Caribbean management, and the coffee cart will be at the other end (west wing) for the Gala Trade Day months: March, June, September and December. This will also be in the Trade Day eNews before each market.
