What an utter joy to have the Byron Farmers Market open again last week (Echo, 18 August), complete with COVID Safe practices.
Like many in the Shire, our family is addicted to fresh citrus, passion-ate fruit, bananas and all the rest of the bounty, and withdrawal symptoms quickly kick in with market closure.
We appreciate shutdowns owing to COVID will, at times, be unavoidable, but as we move to the post-pandemic recovery, and the world focusses more on what matters most, let’s celebrate and grow these local treasures.
The contribution of farmers’ markets to our physical, social, and planetary health is incalculable.
