Every second Saturday the farmers markets come to New Farm park and the iconic Brisbane Powerhouse. The produce is vibrant and fragrant: freshly picked or hand-made. The people selling their produce are nearly always the ones who have grown it, picked it and packed it. They know their stuff and are passionate about what they do. The experience couldn’t be further from that of shopping at a major supermarket, it’s peaceful, and personal and makes gathering the weekly food an enjoyable experience.
