Randwick's newest market is good for your body and your soul.
With public suspicion rising in regards to whether or not we're actually eating fresh when we think we are, we're always on the lookout for any opportunity to get our produce from the farm to our bellies in the fewest steps possible. There's good news for Sydney's Eastern Suburbs then, with the launch of the For Goodness Sake Fair Farmers Market at Randwick Racecourse.
The market opens on Sunday March 19, and will host farmers from around the country every Sunday after that. The fresh fun doesn't stop at fruit and veg, with over 50 stalls hawking artisanal goods, coffee and hot food in addition to produce so fresh that Will Smith is looking into copyright infringement.
While fresh food is definitely good for your body, the Fair Farmers Market is also good for your soul — and not just because there'll be live music, a petting zoo and picnic spaces too. Ten percent of the proceeds go to OzHarvest, who do brilliant work cutting down on food wastage and getting nutrition to those who need it most around the nation.
Gates are open from 8am to 3pm every Sunday.
