The first Orange Farmers Market of the year will take place at Orange Northcourt at the corner of Peisley Street and March Street on Saturday.

The market runs from 8.30am to noon on the second Saturday of each month and usually has more than 60 stallholders with freshly picked, grown and handcrafted produce from the Central West.  

People can meet the maker, learn more about the food and pick up some tips on cooking, storage and the various ways to use the product.

Orange Farmers Market president Kai Woltmann said stall holders and producers at the market are happy to explain what they do.

“I think it’s very important that our customers can come to stall holders who actually produce,” Mr Woltmann said. 

“For me I think it’s a good thing to buy local, supporting producers from the region.”

Last year some changes were made to the markets with a push to go plastic bag free and allowing dogs, on leashes, at the market. 

Entry is a gold coin donation with proceeds going to the Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak.
