Swan Valley's premium wines anf foods for tasting
If you ask a dedicated foodie what their hobby is, you are unlikely to get the answer 'collecting stamps', 'building a replica of Buckingham Palace out of matches' or 'learning to juggle'.
What most foodies do is eat food. Or talk about eating food, or go to tasting festivals to try new and different foods. Tasting festivals such as the Twilight Market on Swan at Taylor's Art and Coffee House on the 7th of March.

Taylor's Art and Coffee House is also the studio of artist Jude Taylor and is well-known for making its considerable facilities available to the local community. They have hosted Phototgraphic Exhibitions, Charity Art Auctions and more.
The beneficiary of the ticket sales for this Festival, apart from those lucky enough to attend, will be to support Mark l Chisholm's fund-rasing efforts towards the charity Ride to Conquer Cancer.

The, at least, 27 stalls set out under the trees in the al fresco area feature local artisans, boutique food producers, quirky craft, collectables from DoveCoat; candles, scarves; clothing, jewellery and local produce from the Swan Valley and regional businesses or chat to your local Federal Member, Hon Christian Porter.
