I’m really excited because as of this Saturday Coburg will have a Farmers Market. I usually schlep across town to the markets at Abbotsford and Collingwood Childrens Farm so having one just up the road is pure luxury in my book.
The market will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of each month at Coburg North Primary School – 180 O’Hea St Coburg 3058, from 8:00 until 1:00pm.
Run by the Melbourne Farmers Market Group (the same people that run the markets at Collingwood Children’s Farm, Abbotsford Convent, Gasworks and Fairfield Primary School etc) the market promises fresh seasonal fruit, veg, meat and bread all sold by the people that produced it.
I know where I’m shopping this weekend. Do you shop at a Farmers Market? What makes a good one?
