VIC­TO­RIA Au­gust 6th, Swan Hill Farm­ers’ Mar­ket One thing that’s guar­an­teed when you buy your fruit and veg­eta­bles from a farm­ers’ mar­ket is that they will be fresh. In some in­stances, only hours out of the ground or offff the tree. At Swan Hill, in the Mallee, north-west Vic­to­ria, shop­pers can buy pota­toes that grower Marty Mc­cosh from Long Lake Pro­duce digs up only days ahead of the mar­ket. Third-gen­er­a­tion cit­rus farm­ers from King­fisher Cit­rus in Nar­rung sell their sea­sonal cit­rus fruit, as well as pure or­ange juice ice­blocks. You can also buy what are re­puted to be the tasti­est or­ganic car­rots around, from Arahura Farms. River­side Park, Swan Hill. 8.30am–12.30pm. 0456 531 606; swan­hill­farm­ers.mar­ket

NSW Au­gust 5th, Lee­ton Farm­ers and Mak­ers Mar­ket The farm­ers and food pro­duc­ers who gather along­side the mak­ers and crafters in Lee­ton each month offf­fer a glimpse into the lo­cal food pro­duc­tion of the Rive­rina, where fruit, rice and wine are big busi­ness. Start your mar­ket visit at Peeches Cof­fee Lounge cofff­fee cart (hail­ing from nearby Grif­fith), then make sure to pick up a bot­tle of Lazi­daze Dress­ing, a bag of Ran­dall Or­ganic Rice, some Yar­row Park ta­ble olives and, as a treat, some­thing sweet from the Junee Li­corice and Choco­late Fac­tory stall.
