5th birthday celebrations for farmers’ market this Saturday

THE Prom Country Farmers’ Market will be celebrating its fifth birthday this Saturday, November 17 – and you are invited!

Come along to the lawns beside the Foster War Memorial Arts Centre (or inside the hall if it is raining) on Saturday between 8am and noon.

The highlight of the celebrations will see students and their supervisors from the Foster Primary School presenting cooking demonstrations and sharing their delicious food with market attendees. Stallholders are donating seasonal fresh food to accompany produce from the school’s garden.

There will be great food to taste and recipes available. Come and see how the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program continues to be enthusiastically embraced by the students of Foster Primary School.

The Prom Country Farmers’ Market, which is held in Foster on the third Saturday of each month, follows the philosophies of the Victorian Farmers’ Market Association (currently being assessed for accreditation) and only local produce and value added products from the region are available direct from the grower/specialty food maker. The market is always influenced by the nature of seasonal farming and the range of products also changes depending on growing conditions. Food and coffee is available for your enjoyment while sharing a good chat with your local community members and visitors to our region.

Whilst the Prom Country Farmers’ Market may be regarded as petite, its value to local small producers and our community is highly valued.

Come and support your local producers by buying direct, knowing you are buying fresh, local and unique!

Do you have a different product to add to the market’s mix? Stallholder enquiries are always welcome; please contact Juneen on mobile 0427 809 509.
