My draw dropped when I visited the Bunbury Farmers Market last weekend for the first time. My wife had to keep pulling me away from one display only to lose me at the next. I love farmer’s markets at the best of times but this place is something else.
This under cover market reminded me of what supermarkets were like when I was growing up, in Perth 20 years ago, but with modern touches. All of the food, 90 percent sourced locally from 150 growers and not cold stored for months, is of exceptional quality but doesn’t feel over processed. They also use that same fresh produce and meat when making their value added products right there on the premises.
Each section is well presented, serviced by very friendly staff and there are kiosks giving out samples and cheerful advice. The service starts in the car-park however with attendants helping you park during busy hours and ends with a cafe (where I got one of the best espressos I have ever had).
Here are some details from the website and then I will show you some of my photos of the visit :).
