Guide to Farmers' Markets Australia and New Zealand 2007

scan10003Farmer's markets have become so much part of our city and country food experience and it is hard to realise that the first one began only in 1999. Since then most centres have at least one market, often operating weekly, and their estimated annual turnover is around $40 million.

The other benefits are enormous: a ready market for local produce, fresher food for buyers, and the opportunity to meet the producer and learn more about the product and gain a deeper appreciation for the work that goes into bringing top quality produce to market. What's more most markets are a sociable way to do the shopping, something we may have missed recently.

The RM Williams name has been attached to many things, and now this book from RM Williams Classic Publications continues the standard of excellence. This guide to over a hundred farmers' markets throughout Australasia is a must for any traveller, or even someone simply interested in learning what these two countries have to offer in the way of fresh produce and individual ideas. The delectable recipes are an added bonus.

RMW Classic Publications, 2006, 460 pages, rrp $19.95.
