NSW Food and Wine at Growers'
Already a showcase for great seasonal produce and producers, The Sydney Morning Herald Growers’ Market took its local message even further during the NSW Food and Wine Festival, on Saturday, March 1. A special edition of this popular monthly market featured wine tastings, a regional brunch and cooking demonstrations with Giovanni Pilu from two-hatted Pilu at Freshwater, as well as great produce from around the state.
NSW regional produce at Growers’ includes smallgoods and macadamias from the northern rivers, ham and venison from Orange, olive oil from the Hunter and Rylstone, fresh fruit and vegetables from Adelong, Orange, south-western Sydney, cheese from the Southern Highlands, mushrooms from the Hawkesbury and the Southern Highlands, and beef from Sutton Forest.
The Sydney Morning Herald Growers' Market is a pioneer on the Sydney farmers' market scene, turning 15 years old in 2013. Located by Sydney Harbour at the picturesque Pyrmont Bay Park, it features more than 70 producers' stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and seasonal vegetables to venison, lamb, beef, rare-breed pork and seafood. Loyal regulars and visitors make a morning of it with specialty breakfasts, locally-roasted coffee and much more.
Market goers get monthly recipe inspiration from guest celebrity chefs at the Market Chef Stage, hosted by Good Food Month director (and The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide editor) Joanna Savill.
