Eating Local - Farmers Market.



















I finally made it to the local Farmer's Market. It is not on every weekend yet as it is a relatively new idea for the town.

It was terrific to see local producers and growers selling their own wares. There was everything from eggs to moisturising creams.

I was really impressed by a local group who are doing whiting fillets in the form of rissoles and sausages.

They had some cooking to try and they were beautiful!

What a brilliant idea to help families eat more fish. The fish are caught locally and they even handle the manufacturing about 30 minutes from my home.

Considering the aversion my husband has to imported seafoods, I think he will be impressed not only by the taste but by the fact that it is all local.

So, looks like there are more local foods that what I first thought. It's just a matter of doing your homework.

I love whiting so it sounds like a great idea. I really need to explore a few more of my local markets :)

Our local farmers market wasn't supported very well by the community unfortunately so it changed to a so called craft and produce market but it's full of junk.
Lucky you, Your market sounds like a good one. :-)
