Comment: Fresh is best and that will be at market

Comment: THE countdown is on - only one more sleep until Bundy's first official farmers market.

I for one will be getting the kids ready early tomorrow morning to make the most of the time we will have to spend browsing, and buying the best produce our region has to offer.

It is often said the Bundaberg is one of the largest food bowls in Queensland, but just looking at the stallholders list, I am surprised at how much amazing food we grow here that I didn't even know about.

Aside from the freshness and quality of what is on offer, it will be good to have more understanding of what we grow here.

Reading our story on page 5 today, it is nice to know that the growers feel they will be getting something out of it too - getting out of the farm gear for a few hours and sharing their love for what they do with the community.

It is a credit to the organisers and producers that we will have so many stallholders showcased.

We have also produced a pull-out map of the site, so market goers can grab it and take it with them. Get your copy in tomorrow's NewsMail.
