It's plum season and we are celebrating this delicious stone fruit at the Hamilton Farmers' Market this Sunday.

Several varieties are available and it's best to get them all and compare their tastes and textures! Find plums at Front Gate, MacSnack and Marcia Trembath (a.k.a. the Plum Lady).

And don't forget to have a Plum Muffin from Celtic Kitchen or a Plum Danish from Mavis & Co for breakfast to get you in the mood!

To find out what goes well with plums, pick up a recipe list from the office ("The Bank"). The recipes feature other local, seasonal ingredients that you can pick up at the market.

How about Lamb with Plums and Runner Beans for dinner? Grandad's Beef and Lamb has lamb shanks, and a variety of stalls offer a wide range of beans (e.g. Bambeana, Pirongia Harvest, Suncakes, Vegetill and Clif's).

Soggy Bottom Holdings is offering pork, prune and brandy sausages for the special occasion.

"I'll also have different pork cuts to have with fresh plums", Jono Walker promises. "I know of people who stuff a pork fillet with plums and cream cheese. Pork rump steaks are also good grilled with plums."

Indoor and outdoor farmers' market in the heart of Hamilton for all your locally farmed and locally produced culinary needs.

The Hamilton Farmers' Market has become the must-go-to place on a Sunday morning, offering fresh, local produce, live entertainment and indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Year-round it offers fruit and vegetables, meats, fish, plants, milk, eggs, honey, baked goods and other locally produced specialities, sold directly by farmers and artisans.
