Maeve O’Meara with Byron Bay Bananaman Craig Evans and Gourmet Safari guests

Award-winning food author and TV presenter Maeve O’Meara drew much attention from both farmers and customers when she visited the Byron Farmers Market last Thursday as part of her Byron Bay Gourmet Safari tour.

It was Maeve’s second visit to the Byron Farmers Market, and she brought her Gourmet Safari guests so they could taste the best and freshest produce the region has to offer, and to meet the farmers who grow it. 

‘Byron Bay and its lush hinterland is literally heaven on earth’, Maeve said. ‘The beaches are long and pristine, the rainforest and farmland is magnificent – the rich volcanic soil perfect for growing a huge range of fruits and vegetables – which makes it a perfect place to explore, meet some inspiring locals and taste some of the best the region has to offer.’

Maeve O’Meara’s whole life revolves around food and creating unique food experiences through Gourmet Safaris, and according to Tom Carey, manager of Byron Farmers Market, it was a great honour to have her back showcasing what our region has to offer.

‘This region is well-known for its incredible fresh produce and has become a real food hub’, said Tom. ‘We are lucky to have such a diverse range of locally grown produce available and it’s great to see that this is recognised and appreciated by such a passionate and respected foodie as Maeve O’Meara.’

Byron Farmers Market is held every Thursday from 7am to 11am at the Cavanbah Centre on Ewingsdale Road.
