Farmer's Market ; Goodwood

I went to the market this morning at the invitation of the market manager,  Amanda. The market has gone from strength to strength and now caters for over 5,000 visitors every Sunday between 9am and 1pm. The array of fresh produce is unbelievable as are the value added, but still South Australian grown and manufactured, produce like jams, breads and processed meat. I met Helen from Cottonwood Farm who sells fresh (frozen) raspberries and jam made from her own produce. Management of the market are currently working through the concept of Wednesday evening markets, during daylight saving, to compliment the exiting market. It was good to hear also that unsold produce can be donated to charities that come and pick up the  produce and then redistribute to needy families.
