Farmers Market Second Anniversary
A spectacular chocolate cake, (decorated with tiny, tasty versions of the delicious produce available at the market) was well received by those who attended on the day.
The basis of farmers markets is that local artisan food producers and farmers provide a diverse range of produce at the market. The Goolwa Farmers Market has bread, and delicious Coorong Mullet and other burgers from Currency Creek. The bread products are made from flour produced by Lauke Mills. The market also has Olive Oil from Finniss and Goolwa North and Brew Box Coffee from locally roasted beans. La Belle Ratatouille has a marvellous range of French delicacies. There is locally caught fish, SA prawns and Crayfish and local smoked fish. There are biscuits, cakes, condiments, locally grown veg from Tooperang and Ian and Gina Easts fantastic berries and baked goods. These items are a mere sample of what is available at the regular fortnightly markets.
In addition, local musicians regularly appear at the market to add to the fun of a relaxing stroll to investigate the marvellous local goods that are available.
In keeping with the farmers market ethos, membership of the market is available at a nominal cost – members receive discounts from all stall-holders.
After two years it is still early days for the Goolwa Farmers Market but after a steady start the market is building support for the future.
