Support your local farmer (and eat his food) at the Farmers’ Markets

One of the very best things about living away from the big smoke is the fact that quality, fresh produce is readily available.

I love the idea of local producers showing me their products without the need for a ‘middle-man’. Plus teaching my little-birds that food does not only come from a supermarket is a valuable life lesson in itself!

This month we particularly loved the pesto Leaning Oak Goat’s cheese and the chilli olives from Ploughman’s Hill Olives. Definitely worth a trip just for those two items!

The Bathurst Farmer’s Markets are held the fourth Saturday of each month from January to November and on the third Saturday in December at the Bathurst Showground.

The Orange Farmer’s Markets operate on the second Saturday of each month at the Orange Showground (May to October) or at the Northcourt behind the Visitor Information Centre (November to April)

What a delicious way to help support local farmers and their families.
