FARMERS MARKETS OF TASMANIA

There's a quiet revolution happening in small towns and cities, where our farmers are getting back to the way it used to be and selling their fruit vegetables and meat direct to the customer at local farmers markets. The produce is fresh, high quality and the cooking advice comes straight from the source.   FARM GATE MARKET, HOBART   There is so much to love about this cute and quirky market. Brimming with high quality Tasmanian produce, the market has strict rules – all produce must be local (within the confines of Tasmania) and seasonal. Try the Bruny Island Cheese Company cheeses, charcuterie from Rare Food (gourmet farmer and former food critic Matthew Evans's business with Ross O'Meara) and dukkahs from Bodhi Farm Organics.   Held every Sunday from 9am.   CYGNET FARMERS MARKET   Held in the local hall, this market feels like you've stumbled on a beautifully tasty secret – one full of handmade organic bread, fruit, vegetables and cheeses. In true market style, you'll also find soaps, plants, photography, artwork and even fossils from around the world.   Held twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Sunday from 10.00am - 2.00pm.
