Some delicious news from the team at the Capital Region Farmers Market in Canberra! As part of its tenth birthday celebrations this year, the Market is launching its very own cookbook. The Capital Region Farmers Market is the shopfront for the best food and wine that this region has to offer and the Capital Region Farmers Market Recipe Book showcases the market people, their produce and their passion for food.
'Good food has never come from factory farms, process lines, canteens, supermarkets and fast food chains. It still belongs to careful vegetable gardeners, painstaking cheese makers and dedicated chef-patrons, meeting in the bustling market-place.'
“ON market days the squares are piled high with garlic and onions and every sort of vegetable and fruit. The people shout, throw things, scuffle, laugh and sing all day long.” — literary genius J.W. Goethe, Italian Journey (1786-88).
