If you're seeking some culinary inspiration after watching MasterChef or My Kitchen Rules, look no further than your local primary school on a Saturday morning!
On every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, the bustling Coburg Farmers Market appears at Coburg North Primary School on O'Hea Street in Coburg and promises to inspire you with its abundant assortment of seasonal produce and artisan delights.
Shopping at your local farmers' market offers you the chance to buy fresh produce straight from the person who grew it. In many instances, produce has only been picked within hours of it reaching your local farmers' market, meaning that it has maximum time to grow on the vine and absorb all of the nutrients and goodness possible and you will really notice the taste difference! In most cases produce is organic, meaning no nasty chemicals in its production, compared with the chemically treated and lifeless produce available at the supermarket.
Bring your shopping bags and get ready to be delighted by the various varieties on offer. This includes free range eggs, pomegranates, walnuts, pistachios, bread, meat, chocolate, cheese, various condiments and wine. Producers such as Plains Paddock Lamb, Flinders Sourdough, Boisdale Best Vegies, Hazeldean Forest Farm, Lisadurne Olive Oil, Heidi Honey, Goldfields Farmhouse Cheese, Purple Pea Seedlings, Gippsland Pasture Fed Meats, Milawa Cheese and King Valley Pies showcase their bountiful produce and are always eager to chat about how to best use their products.

With a relaxed vibe and friendly locals, there's no better way to spend your Saturday morning then by nourishing your soul, supporting your local farmers and gaining some invaluable culinary inspiration.
