I've been fond of the food offerings found south of the border in the NSW Northern Rivers area for a while. Apart from fabulous bananas, there's some great local coffee. With the opening of the Tugan bypass, this area is even closer to Brisbane for day trippers and now there's a farmer's market.
The Domain Casuarina Farmers Markets will be held on the first and third Saturday of the month with the first official market kicking off on Saturday, December 6. It will feature produce personally selected by Domain Catering’s Executive Chef Greg Pieper (of Bamboo Restaurant + Bar). Under the shade of the Sandbar + Grill courtyard, market lovers can discover Farmer Dave’s famous free range lamb, taste artisan cheeses from Burringbar, and cook up a storm with the freshest seafood from Warren Markwell. There will also be freshly cut flowers, quality brewed coffee and top quality organic fruit and vegetables. The markets will run from 8am – 11am at the Sandbar + Grill, Barclay Drive, Casuarina Beach.
