What’s your favourite tropical fruit! Guava? Dragon fruit? Custard Apples? It is always intriguing talking with producers, from all walks of life, about how they grow their produce & their passion for feeding their communities. The importance of supporting & learning from Aussie food producers is rapidly becoming understood by those who eat. As educators, small business owners, parents, grandparents to sporting clubs, we must continue to encourage the population to shop local brands, connect with farmers and pass on these special moments to the next generations. ‍‍ Did you visit Farmers’ Markets over the weekend?
