Looking for a preserve, chutney, relish or pickle just like your Grandma used to make? Then look no further, because French Chef Gilbert Prevort from The Loan & Mercantile is the creator of the most amazing condiments using the freshest North Otago produce. In addition to this, Sue Harvey will be selling "icons of the south" - the infamous cheese roll! Sue will be serving up her cheesy delights at the Oamaru Farmers' Market using ingredients from local supplier Whitestone.
How it all started... Fleur Sullivan, owner of Fleurs Place in Moeraki, was the visionary behind the opening of The Loan & Mercantile, a tavern and eating house in Oamaru's historic precinct. The Loan & Merc (as it's known to locals) developed a wide range of North Otago renowned produce into preserves, chutneys, relishes, pickles and other specialty lines. And it was through a great working relationship with Fleur when it all started for French Chef Gilbert Prevort.
Did you know...? Sue Harvey is known around the Otago region as "The Cheese Roll Lady"!
