We’ve all been there – walking through the Farmer’s Markets, a little parched, because we didn’t plan ahead. How un-Northern Rivers of us! But never fear. There’s a solution. And it’s delicious. Byron Bay Cane Juice, run by the relaxed and good humoured Aner Yeffet has been serving up a concoction of thirst stavers for some time now. And his popularity speaks for the product.
Raw sugarcane juice is a refreshing healthy drink that has ten times less sugar than apple or orange juice. Cane juice is known for its ability to soothe a sore throat, fight off colds and flu, aid digestion, help cleanse the liver and boost the immune system.
Aner says the option to add turmeric to the mix he prepares for his customers is particularly popular this time of year. ‘It’s refreshing and it’s full of things that your body wants – especially around winter when our immune systems need to work a bit harder with colds and flus around,’ he said. ‘The juice has all the complex Vitamin B’s, it’s high in iron, contains trace elements and has an alkaline PH.’
Kids and adults alike also love watching the process of the juice being made, with long stems of the sugar cane plant being fed through a crushing machine on site.
Aner said he loves working at the markets and being part of the community. ‘It’s a wonderful experience, the Mullum Farmers Markets,’ Aner said. ‘It’s a place of such wide ranging people and opinions, and there’s a real atmosphere.’
You can try the delectable mixes with different ingredients and flavour at Byron Bay Cane Juice every Friday from 7am to 11am at the Mullumbimby Farmers Markets at 51 Main Arm Rd Mullumbimby. For details of other stalls visit our website mullumfarmersmarket.org.au.
