Market makes an impact

THE monthly Koonwarra Farmers Market was held on Saturday, with plenty of locals and visitors attending to purchase wonderful South Gippsland produce.

Held at Koonwarra’s Memorial Park and hall, the market featured around 20 seasonal stalls, with an enticing assortment of produce.

Products not available in supermarkets are always a feature, with many unique items.

Market guidelines allow for minimal duplication of products to maximise the wide variety of products available from the region.

It is a great bonus for the customers to be able to talk to the growers and makers of the products on offer.


Top toast: Sharyn Jencke from Venus Bay was at the Koonwarra Farmer’s Market on Saturday, to buy locally made fresh bread from Betsy and Luca Evans from Oak and Swan, based at Mirboo North.

Child friendly: the Koonwarra Farmer’s Market is held on the first Saturday of the month next to the town hall and is a great place to visit. Emily O’Brien, right with Katelyn Williams from Koonwarra were there bright and early last Saturday.
