Produce highlighted at festival
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
