Ah ha, yes understand Nick
We are going around the operators/managers as most of the ‘farmers markets’ up here are filled with on sellers and the farmers get pushed out.
We are forming pacts with farmers to on sell our family of farmers produce so they can compete whilst they build up their capacity to grow more as well as sell through us.
Farmers markets are at the most a five year strategy as they are just too time consuming and are on the weekends so not great for farmers family time etc.

Food Connect and it’s network of farmers in our bioregion, wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians, past and present, of the Aboriginal Nations of South East Queensland, namely the Turrbal (‘Turrbal’, ‘Turrubul’ and ‘Jagara’), Ugandi people of the Bundgalung nation and the Jinibara (‘Jinibara’, ‘Dalla’ and ‘Dungidjau’). We respect their wisdom and farming methods which have provided shelter, food and a rich culture for thousands of generations.
