Eat well, enjoy and win!
Published on February 1 2011.
If you, like many of our foodie friends are produce obsessed, make sure you head down to your local farmers’ market this weekend for the best quality, locally produced food.
Meet the makers as they share stories and advice on how their food has been grown and harvested. They can also tell you about perfect partners for your fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats and more.
Pop by the information stand at Hurstbridge Farm, Melbourne Showgrounds or St Kilda Farmers' Markets next weekend and pick up a Festival guide for your chance to win tickets for yourself and three friends to Cellar Door & Farm Gate.
Around 35,000 Victorians shop at local farmers’ markets each week, supporting local producers and their communities. Farmers’ markets offer fresh, nutritious, seasonal food. Buying from locally accredited farmers’ markets is your chance to eat sustainable food, promote a lower carbon footprint and to help preserve our agricultural landscape, not to mention providing communities affected by natural disasters with some extra support by buying Victorian.
Visit the Victoria’s Farmers’ Market Association stand at Metlink Edible Garden to say hello.
