There's more to a Farmers' Market than just fruit and veggies.
Mouth-watering baked goods: There is nothing quite as intoxicating as the taste and smell of freshly baked bread. Many farmers markets, like us here at Clunes Farmers Market, welcome our local bakers to offer their wares. Most of them are made using the same fresh, local ingredients that farmers markets are known for, which enhances the taste of the bread or pastry, making it not only rich in nutrients, but full of flavour as well.
Fine wines: Wherever you find grapes, you find wine, and farmers markets are no different. Local vineyards and winemakers proudly offer their tantalising tipples at farmers markets, often allowing you to taste them as well. For Clunes that means enjoying the chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, merlot and shiraz varietals made by Redbank Winery.
Aromatic coffee: In a country full of self-confessed coffee aficionados, no true Aussie experience would be complete without some artisanal caffeine fixes. PJ Coffee keeps pep in the step of farmers and visitors alike at Clunes. They draw their inspiration from travels in Italy to create their fine grounds. Follow your nose!
These are just a small sample of the many diverse products that you can expect to find at a farmers market these days, as well as the freshest locally grown produce. Clunes Farmers Market has all of the above and more, securing our place in the article ‘Farmers Markets: Australia's Best Local Produce’. Be sure to stop by and see us on the second Sunday of every month!
