Only this week I watched a disturbing segment on A Current Affair about the meat industry. Some Aussie butchers have been accused of passing off meat scraps as premium steak and chicken, using a glue binder that is banned overseas. This really made me start thinking about the produce I’m buying and wanting to find out exactly where it’s come from.
The new Bondi Farmers Market which launch on Saturday April 30 are going to be a great opportunity for me to meet the people who are growing and producing the products so I can be more informed about where the food has come from first hand. I’m also excited to check out some delicious products that aren’t readily available from our local supermarkets. Hopefully I’ll find some great inspiration for my next culinary creation!
The Bondi Farmers Market will bring locals an interesting variety of NSW ingredients and you’ll find many stall holders with award winning produce. Market goers will be able to purchase Alchemy Coffee, boutique market fruit & vegetables from Johnson’s Farmgate, Farmer Jo indulgent muesli and dreamy gelato using organic ingredients from Gelato Cart. Other unique delicacies include, A Taste of Bush native Australian herbs and spices, Li-Sun exotic mushrooms, family farmed Mirrool Creek lamb who supply some of Sydney’s finest restaurants, Over The Moon Milk which has been bottled and pasteurised the old fashioned way, Sydney’s finest freshest pasta – Pastabilities and Hamilton’s Bluff NSW wine.
An initiative of the Bondi Beach Public School, the Bondi Farmers Market came about as a response to a growing call from locals interested in buying fresh produce direct from farmers, growers and food makers.
Bondi Markets Manager, Ross Alexander has commented that the Farmers Market will be a welcome addition to the local area and is eagerly anticipated by beachside residents.
