Great review. Have been to some of these markets, and you have now promoted my resolution to visit the others.
Also, EQ Markets, which although not totally organic has a couple of organic Fruit and Veg stalls that are there every Saturday and Wednesday.
And, north Sydney farmers market which is the third Saturday of every month. Again not totally organic, but there are number of organic providores and growers.
