Rescheduled night markets for producer's markets? Sounds like a fair trade

DON'T be too disappointed you have to wait a week until the rescheduled FOOD Week night markets, because you only have to wait a day until the producer's market. 

The producer's market will be at Cook Park on Sunday and Taste Orange marketing manager Charlotte Gundry said it’ll go ahead rain, hail or shine.

The inaugural market last year replaced the FOOD Affair and attracted about 2,000 visitors.

Ms Gundry said there would be 24 stallholders tomorrow and event organisers had worked hard to improve last year’s successful formula.

"Overall for a first time event, the response was positive both from the stallholders as well as the consumer, we have endeavoured to manage the rush on coffee first thing on Sunday morning by having additional machines," she said. 

"Lots of great options for breakfast will be available this year."

There will be plenty of children's entertainment with plaster moulding, treasure hunts and face painting and guests are being be encouraged to bring along picnic rugs and listen to the tunes produced by Josh Maynard and Samatha Jean.

Ms Gundry said the event was a great way for the public to mix with producers and learn about how the food goes from paddock to plate. 

"This event was included in the program as a way of incorporating another producer event,” she said.

“It’s an event where people can get something to eat but also pick up a bit of produce on their way back to Sydney or wherever they may have journeyed from.

"It also uses Cook Park, which is such a beautiful location at this time of year and is a place loved by the families of Orange. 

"So this event will continue to grow as a popular event during Orange FOOD Week."

The market starts at 8.30am and runs until 12.30pm.
