Five for Friday – 11th July

1. La Macelleria
La Macelleria is a new Gelato store in Teneriffe. It opened its doors to the public last week but will host it’s official opening party tomorrow. As an opening special for tomorrow only they are offering a small Gelato cup/cone and espresso for $2 (all day long) and making a special flavour (champagne sorbet) to distribute between 6 and 9pm. The owners are originally from Bologna and have trained at Italy’s gelato school. They fell in love with Australia and decided to share their passion with others.

2. The Gap Farmers’ Market
This Sunday marks the launch of The Gap Farmers’ Market. Following this weekend, the markets are to be held every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. The aim of the markets is to support regional agriculture by providing small family farms with the opportunity to sell their produce directly to consumers, providing our community access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food our region has to offer. The markets will open 6:30am to 11am at The Gap State School on Settlement Road.

 4. FIFA World Cup Final
 So who will be getting up early this coming Monday morning to watch the FIFA  World Cup final of Germany versus Argentina? I’m tempted, as I’m usually up giving a bottle to my son at that time of morning anyway. Coverage starts from 3:30am on SBS One. I’m barracking for Deutschland!
