While I was up on the Sunshine Coast, I visited the Noosa Farmers markets for the first time and I was most impressed.
They certainly had plenty of variety on offer. There was a terrific range of food fresh from farmers or makers (cheese, deli goods etc). Including fruits, vegetables, breads, yoghurt, meats, goat’s milk, nuts, flowers, coffee, baked goods, Asian street food, gourmet meats, cheese, olives, and much more. They were reasonably priced for such high quality produce and there were tastings at various stalls.
The produce was so fresh and the meat and seafood the best quality.
The atmosphere is very much alive and so friendly. I really enjoyed wandering around and sampling the food on offer. I will certainly visit again.
Not only was food there, there was entertainment as well. A great place to visit and stock up on healthy foods…. it is a real foodies haven.
Noosa Farmers Market is fantastic if you love food and cooking. So much variety, so many taste sensations, so easy to meander from stall to stall and there are no cheap trinket stalls, just good home-grown produce.
These markets are full of tasty treats, and is held every Sunday morning from 7 to 12, at the Football Ground in Weyba Road
I really enjoyed these markets, definitely a community feel here. They are smaller than many farmers markets that I have been to so it doesn’t take you all day to get around them. So fresh it just inspires you to be healthy.
I had the pleasure of meeting a very interesting guy who is passionate about Raw Food. He conducts “raw food cooking classes” on the coast which apparently are very good and the food is divine. Scott walks his talk and you can see it. He just looks fantastic. I learned so much from our short talk. He is a wealth of information. You may like to take a look at his website. www.scottmathiasraw.com
I would say that this market has one of the best selections of true local produce of any I have seen in Australia.
And to make it an even more pleasant morning, there was plenty of easy well organised parking right at the markets
