The event in focus this month is the Toowoomba Farmers Market.
It’s usual home in the grounds next to the Cobb and Co museum will be the final day there, on the 24th March and from the 1st of April 2017, will be at Walton Stores in Toowoomba CBD.
A market like no other in the region, you will find a true Farmers' Market, reconnecting the consumer with local producers, growers, educators, artisans, maker and bakers.
There is something about wondering through a farmers market, choosing from the abundance of fresh seasonal food, straight from the people who grew and raised it.
The Farmers Market “supports growers, producers and artisans whilst promoting education, mindfulness and awareness.”
“We recognise the need for a regular market to help aid change in eating habits and drive demand towards supporting local business’ rather than the big guys and supermarkets.”
The market also includes educational programs over at the farm ‘Paddock to Potager’ in Pechey.
Here you can join in workshops and programs, such as animal husbandry, growing your own food, harvesting and then learning what to do with the abundance of fresh seasonal food.
Toowoomba Farmers Market prides itself on supporting and educating the local community - a vital part of the future stability of the local economy.
Check out The Walton Stores for your local farmers market, a genuine foodie and country experience.
Weekly from 7-11am, Annand and Ruthven Streets Toowoomba CBD.
