Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | WHAT’S ON -

AS OUR north­ern neigh­bours pre­pare for the ar­rival of the Jumpers and Jazz in July fes­ti­val this year’s new ad­di­tion is sure to be a fan favourite.

Along with the Suit­case Rum­mage and Town Hall Jazz Lounge on Palmerin St, Warwick will be a first time event Cel­e­bra­tion of Lo­cal Flavours.

Join­ing the Stroll ‘n’ Swing mar­ket on Sun­day, July 28, this new at­trac­tion will be show­cas­ing the re­gion’s lo­cal pro­duce.

Cel­e­bra­tion of Lo­cal Flavours will bring to­gether farm­ers and re­tail­ers from the South­ern Downs and Gran­ite Belt, Jumpers and Jazz in July chair­man Dan No­ble said.

“The fes­ti­val is al­ways try­ing to high­light the dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity as­pects and this was a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion,” he said.

“It will be a chance to high­light the won­der­ful pro­duce in this area.”

With the fes­ti­val at­tract­ing hun­dreds of guest to the re­gion lo­cal pro­duc­ers will have stalls set up along the main street to feast on.

Cel­e­bra­tion of Lo­cal Flavours project co­or­di­na­tor He­len Lewis said it was an op­por­tu­nity for farm­ers and re­tail­ers to get on the food map.

“We want farm­ers to en­gage with the cafes along the main street, to sup­ply lo­cal pro­duce and use lo­cal ven­dors to cre­ate ex­cel­lent meals,” she said.

Lo­cal pro­duc­ers are en­cour­aged to get in­volved for in­for­ma­tion email: he­len@pi­cots­farm.com.au
