>> Friday, June 25, 2010 – Adventure Tasmania
Winter is the season when food needs to be nourishing and sustaining. It's time for comfort food. Those dishes that involve cooking methods such as braising, simmering and roasting...all to warm your soul on these cold, cold evenings.
Operating in the heart of Hobart every Sunday is Tasmanian Farm Gate, Hobart's weekly farmers market. The stall holders stand by these four beliefs:
* Produce must be fresh, picked the night before.
* Everything must be regional.
* Produce must be in season.
* Only the grower or producer can trade at the market.
That's how you know what you're purchasing will be of the highest quality and taste divine.
According to the stall holders this winter, these are the top products to put in your shopping basket.
Hearty vegetables such as potatos, swedes, turnips, beans, cabbages, pumpkin, silverbeet and sprouts.
Stock up on crisp, juicy, new season apples. Remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Grab some premium Tassie Beef and Premium Goat Meat. Don't forget Goat Meat pies and Berkshire Pork bangers.
Make sure you try Bruny Island Artisan Cheeses.
For the pantry, grab some Woodstock award winning jams and relishes.
Do all your shopping while sipping on locally roasted coffee.
Make sure you turn your purchases into something delectable...with ingredients this fresh and wholesome, you can't go wrong.
Tasmanian Farm Gate - Every Sunday in the Melville Street outdoor car park, Hobart Tasmania. Rain, hail or shine!
