Farmers Markets want your feedback

Farmers Markets

The Capital Region Farmers Market is looking to hear from you:

So if you haven’t heard by now, The Capital Region Farmers Market in EPIC have become a Saturday morning tradition in Canberra. After 6 years out in the shed in EPIC, they have grown to over 110 stallholders each week and attract some of Canberra’s smartest shoppers – the ones that like to buy direct from the producer and give the big supermarkets a wide berth.

Last year, the Rotary club of Hall, that runs the markets as a community project undertook a survey of customers. The feedback created some useful outcomes and helped them to lobby and undertake planning to do things like upgrade the parking, create new events such as the four chefs cooking demos and a parcel pickup service.

This year’s survey is now open for the next week and if you have shopped at the markets before and are keen to participate just click the link.

What’s Your opinion?

You do say, quite frequently.

Or a free potato from the potato guy because my kid wanted to make a monster.

Aw shucks. Like out of a movie.

Last day for Southside at CIT.

There waz peas, broad beans, eggplant from Leeton, pink-and-white striped beetroot from the people just inside the door, and it was good to see Mr Zivko back (I’m going to take his photo one day).

When I buy produce from Kitanodai Kaihatsu, it usually doesn’t make it to a boiling pot of water.

Broad beans? *gobble*
Wax turnips? *gobble*
I do cook their beetroot and spinach, though.

I love how with organic food you don’t have to wash it, just to link back to the topic at hand – Why I Shop at the Farmers’ Market.

(For those who haven’t been, Southside is probably a little less pretentious than EPIC, but I don’t know if that will change when it moves on 7 November.)

There was peaz – though you probably shouldn’t let your kids eat a bag of them unless you’ve got good ventilation. Plenty of broad beans too! Great in pasta, a little butter, parmesan, salt, done.

Broad beans are very very easy to grow. And you can pick them when they are smaller and nicer.

But peas – mmmm – I missed out too.

There waz peas?

I couldn’t go this morning. *blub* I hope the Japanese guys still got broad beans next week.
