Direct from the Farm to your Plate!
Rain, hail or shine, there’s one Sunday activity that’s always there for us in Newcastle – Newcastle City Farmers Markets!
If you’re in the Lake Mac area, get along to the Lake Macquarie City Farmers Market at Speers Point every 2nd and 4th Saturday – and keep your eyes open for the Glendale City Farmers Market coming soon to Stockland Glendale.
Not only will you find the best local produce all in one place at your local Farmers Markets, but it’s the most sustainable way to support your local producers and get straight to the source with a unique opportunity to interact directly with farmers, producers and artisans.
Where else but at ‘The Farmers’ can you buy groceries direct from the farmer – from the person who grew, nurtured and made the product. You not only get to meet the maker and the farmer, but you can also ask about how and where it’s grown or made, how best to store or use it. And it's not just fresh fruit and veggies on offer.
Not only can you stock up the pantry with locally sourced fresh produce, but you can also indulge in a delicious market lunch from one of the many food trucks. Taste wines from boutique wineries, try gourmet sauces, jams and chutneys, freshly baked organic bread, handmade pasta, organic eggs and beef and of course, fresh seafood (an essential ingredient for Easter!).
