The Mullum Farmers Market will kickstart the Harvest Food Trail by offering a little taster on Friday 5 May 2023.

You will be able to learn all about foraging, cooking and growing Australian native foods with three of the most formidable and talented local women. The cooking and growing workshops will take place at the fabulous Mullum Farmers Market – which showcases the region’s finest local producers and artisan products.

With six breakfast stalls cooking up locally grown produce, plenty of seating under the giant fig trees, live music and kids entertainment, it’s no surprise that it’s the weekly gathering spot for our colourful and alternative community. What better way to meet 70 local growers and producers in one venue?

The Bush Tucker Forage, Cook and Grow Experience is a collaboration with:

  • Auntie Delta Kay (Exlore Byron Bay) an Arakwal Bundjalung woman who is passionate about sharing Aboriginal culture – explorebyronbay.com.au.
  • Mindy Woods (Karkalla Restaurant – Masterchef winner and first Indigenous female chef hat winner) – karkalla.com.au.
  • Rebecca Barnes (Playing With Fire – 23 years’ experience with bush tucker foods and runner up in the 2017 Rural Woman of the Year Award) – playingwithfire.com.au.
  • Mullumbimby Farmers Market (delicious magazine’s ‘Most Outstanding Farmers Market in Australia’) – mullumfarmersmarket.org.au.

Booking in for the bush tucker experience is essential. Please book via Explore Byron Bay: www.explorebyronbay.com/harvest-food-trail When: Friday 5 May, 8–9am.

Where: Brunswick Valley Heritage Park – 1 Tyagarah St, Mullumbimby,

The cooking demo and growing workshops are free.

When: Friday 5 May, cooking demo at 9.30am; growing demo at 10.30am.
