FOOD WEEK LUNCH
The Country Women’s Association hall at Nashdale has now been the venue for eight Producers’ Lunches — the annual event we host with the Orange Farmers’ Market. This much-loved event in the FOOD Week calendar saw nearly 150 people sitting down to share a meal. Guests enjoyed a glass of Charles Sturt NV sparkling on arrival and met growers from the region at the market outside the hall. From Mandagery Creek venison to Palings Yard olive oil, producers of many varieties featured on organiser Cath Thompson’s menu — and guests had the opportunity to buy the raw ingredients as they left the hall. It was a great day meeting new friends and old in a convivial setting.
