Mobile Market Summer Food Swap

The summer season means a lot of us are planting and growing our own fruits and veggies. It also makes it the perfect opportunity to swap produce with fellow mobile market go-ers!

Come and join us at the mobile markets on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month and exchange your homegrown produce with your neighbours or even us. This event will only run from now until September, so make sure to spread the word and bring a friend!
