Get fresh with a school markets
A Farmer's Market is a wonderful way to spend the morning and afternoon. You can see and try all sorts of things and buy some fresh produce too. The ongoing Palmyra Western Farmers Market is a brilliant option to have a fun day out, try new things and have a great time with family or friends.
Every purchase made at the Palmyra Western Farmers Market funds the Kitchen Garden Program at Palmyra Primary School. This program allows the kids to learn how to cook, grow and produce different products as a part of their curriculum. They learn valuable lessons and can then use these skills later in life too.
The entire community gets behind this market and if you want to get involved, there are plenty of things to do while at the markets. There is organic produce to buy, coffee and freshly squeezed juice to drink and homemade meals to try. There are homemade burgers and pasta, Turkish gozleme and crepes. Eggs, bread and pastries as well as preserves, cupcakes and even flowers. There is also some live entertainment to watch.
There is something for everyone. Fresh from the garden to the stalls, you could spend all morning at this marketplace and still not see everything. It is free entry, but all stalls will charge for their produce. Head to Palmyra Primary School every Sunday between 8am and 12pm.
