If you are new to this market or love knowing more about fresh ingredients and where they come from, then North Sydney Council have provided a special treat for you - free behind the scene tours of this vibrant market.
These tours will be taken by devoted food advocate, chef and restaurant reviewer Tawnya Bahr.
Her goal is to educate food lovers of all ages by sharing her knowledge and providing opportunities for the farmers, growers and producers to give a real insight to the skill and hard work that goes into creating the food we consume.
On this friendly tour, you will get to meet the producers firsthand, and listen to their stories. You will learn how they grow, rear, bake or otherwise make their goods.
Northside Produce Market runs rain, hail or shine. Examples of the producers include Adelong Farm figs claimed by some to be the best they have ever tasted, Prickle Hill Produce of Coleambally, known for their fresh and dried sugar plums - featured in their Sydney Royal award-winning Worcester sauce and Moonacres Farm of Fitzroy Falls, awarded the Delicious Produce award 'From the Earth' for their much-loved rhubarb.
