Poynter Farmer Markets, ahh to have a Saturday off, this was one place on my list of things to do.
It may be small yet it’s loaded with fresh local produce, rainbow beetroots, carrots, silver beet, sweet mangoes, berries and amazing bananas all the seasonal foods you’d hope for!
The aroma of fresh breads, pastries, cakes, chutneys, herbs and flowers decorate the entrance and I wanted to take it all home… but I could only fit what I could into my back pack, so I made sure it was array of mixed colours, letting the leaf tops burst out my back pack to ride in the wind on my cycle back home.

The Poynter Farmers’ Market opened today to a sell out success.
By the time we arrived at 9.45am (the market opens at 9am), the baked goods were all but sold out, queues were trailing for produce and the coffee cart was doing its best, trying to keep up with the caffeine orders for adults and granitas for the kids.
Highlights include organic vegetables, homemade macaroons, Il Panino breads, Soldridge Lamb and Elmar’s hotdogs (go the cheese kransky with special sauce!).
With so much community support and all proceeds going to Poynter Primary P&C, these markets can only get bigger and better.

“One of the biggest selections of delicious breads and home-baked products can be found here. Choose from sourdough, pizzas, biscuits, cupcakes, tarts and scrolls, muffins, sausage rolls and quiches. If you’re in the mood for a quiet stroll then this market is the place to be, with a very relaxed, village feel. You can buy good-quality seasonal produce picked fresh for market day, including fruits and heritage vegetables. Farmers offer nothing but the best and will include large, small and irregularly shaped produce, because that’s how nature does things.” — Louise Fitzroy – Scoop Magazine for Summer 2012/2013 Edition
