March the first will see the Byron Farmers Market celebrate its 15th birthday at the Butler Street Reserve and there will be plenty of colour, creativity and cake said market organisers.
From 8 till 11am there will not only be the usual array of fresh, local produce direct from local farmers but there’ll also be entertainment, gifts, free food, and a special guest.
‘The Emmy award-winning dirtgirl (from dirtgirlworld and the get grubby TV programs) will be on hand to help us celebrate in style (farm style, that is),’ said market organiser Kylie McGregor.
‘Not only is she a favourite with kids both here in Australia and around the world but she’s also a champion of sustainability, farmers and growing your own food. Our kinda gal.’
There will also be free entertainment for the kids (big and little) with live music and roving acts, a cooking demo (and tastings) from Byron Farmers Market ambassador and chef extraordinaire Gavin Hughes (also Head Chef at the Byron at Byron), a kiddies corner where potential future farmers can get sowing and growing with DIY seedling pots, plus giveaways and finishing off with a cracking birthday cake.
Market organisers are asking everyone to come along and celebrate.
