I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Fresh food and vegetable shopping has become easier on Darby Street since Harris Farm Markets
opened. With 1200 sq metre of space there is plenty of room for a large variety of specialty products.

The 21st Harris Farm store stocks organic locally grown produce and items from Hunter producers such as Baked Uprising bread, Adina Vineyard olives, Pukara oils and Nanna Kerr's Kitchen. Apart from a cornucopia of fruit and vegetables, there are herbs, nuts and dried fruit, cut flowers, cheeses, meats, dairy products and seafood.
