Sydney Farmers Markets for your weekly fresh produce shop

With spring just around the corner, it’s a good time to get familiar with your local farmers markets. It’s a great place to shop on weekends and purchase fresh, healthy produce. We share some of our favourites.

Some reasons why local is important…

• Local food often retains more nutrients, as it has less distance to travel. Food picked from afar must be picked before it ripens and the nutrition content is the highest! Often times, unripe fruits are artificially ripened with ethylene gas.

• Choosing vegetables and fruits when they are in season helps you to continually add variety to your diet; you won’t be eating the same thing all year round.

• Much of the time, small, local farmers tend to use less or minimal pesticides. Smaller farms tend to use lesser chemicals in comparison to large-scale, industrial operations.

• Supporting locally grown food helps to support your local economy.
