"Into your hand straight from the land." That's what you get from
Caulfield Farmers' Market and other authentic In Season Farmers' Markets dotted around Melbourne and in Ballarat.

Every second Saturday of the month, you'll find me, trolley in tow, at the field on the corner of Neerim and Booran Roads opposite Glen Eira College in Caulfield. I'm shopping for the freshest fresh produce - and enjoying a chat with the friendly stallholders, who you get to know after a while and who look after you well if you buy from them often.

It's a big market where you can pick up anything from seasonal fruit (often picked the day before), organic vegetables, flowers, plants and seedlings, as well as local garlic, cakes and biscuits, jams and preserves.

Taste and buy beautiful nuts, sultanas, dried apricots, pears and prunes from Gihan at Happy Fruit; lovely olive oils and garlic and lemon-infused olives from Maria, the olive lady; tomatoes, cucumbers and capsicums from Lee; and juicy Mildura oranges from Phoebe, the Orange Lady. Buy boutique wines and beer, organic meats, sensational sausages, delicious dim sum, and more. Get there early (8am) for the best produce and less crowds.

The committed folks at In Seasons, in addition to running many wonderful Farmers' Markets, are also launching Harvest 'n' Graze, a very exciting food, wine and music event on February 5th at the Caulfield Racecourse. Giddeyup!
