Market Tales

The Toowoomba’s Farmers Market 2.0

After a busy week at the Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba, Gecko Grove Fine Foods will be back this weekend at the second edition of the Toowoomba Farmers Markets.

The first Toowoomba’s Farmers Market was founded by Fiona May who was keen to get a farmers market in Toowoomba promoting local produce and producers.  Fiona also runs her own education program on her farm advocating education for kids about where our food comes from.

The first market was back in June and was a roaring success with some store holders selling out by 10am (eeeek!). There was also HEAPS of publicity with Gecko Grove featured in the Toowoomba Chronicle (see image below), the Queensland Country Life and even on the segment on WIN News!

You can view the video here (I think you have to be signed into Facebook to watch it):

Since then lots of people of jumped on board to help.  It’s now going to be held at the Toowoomba Showgrounds and will be held one the last Saturday of every month (dates can be found here).

We are looking forward to the second edition of this wonderful market this weekend!

When: Saturday, Sept 26, from 7am-11am

Where: Toowoomba Showground, Glenvale Road, Glenvale in Toowoomba (map)
