The Chatswood organic food and farmer's markets are held each Saturday from 8am-1pm at Chatswood High School, on the corner of Pacific Highway and Centennial Avenue. The term 'organic', that is commonly tossed around these days, refers to food and produce that has been grown on land free of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, and does not use these chemicals to aid growth. Organic food is more sustainable, beneficial for the environment, and tastes better.
The Chatswood markets are quite small and quaint, but have lots of produce for those after organic food. There is plenty of organic fruit and vegetables, including herbs, as well as an organic chilli stall, offering fresh chilli, spreads, even chilli wine. There is organic coffee, fresh bread, organic chips and spreads, nuts, oats, juice and also some delicious french crepes. There is everything an organic shopper might want. However, the prices are much dearer than the local supermarket and doing a large shop will set you back a lot of money.
Nevertheless, this is a fun outing for those wanting to explore what organic food has to offer. It's also a great place to find fresh vegetables for a Saturday lunch. The people are friendly, and the produce fresh and seasonal.
