TASMANIAN Craft Fair is as busy as the Royal Melbourne Show for Melbourne licorice makers Uncle John’s.
The Uncle John’s stall had already sold about a quarter of their stock by early afternoon on the fair’s first day yesterday.
“I did 10 of the 11 days of Melbourne Show so I knew what I was in for, this is probably just as busy if not busier,” salesperson Caroline Bourke said.
“I was warned that it would be as fast as you were making the bags, they would be going out the door.”
The company also flies down for Agfest and have come to the craft fair at Deloraine for about five years.
“People know the product and they come back year after year.
DELIGHTFUL BITES: Owner of Rhuby Delights Malcolm Ryan has taken a thousand boxes of his chocolate-covered, freeze-dried rhubarb bites to the Tasmanian Craft Fair.
“It’s not just here, when we do other shows it’s the same – it’s just the product itself.”
Devonport’s Rhuby Delights are at the show for the first time this weekend after launching at Agfest in May.
Rhuby Delights are pieces of chocolate covered rhubarb, freeze dried.
“It’s a brand new product, people don’t know what it is. It’s been a lot of work explaining to people. You know what a praline is or a truffle, but what’s a Rhuby Delight?” owner Malcolm Ryan said.
“People are starting to look for Rhuby Delights. The way I’m going, I’m going to be empty tabled by Monday.”
