Local wheat: Burrum Biodynamics have started bringing their 2019 wheat crop to markets. Farmer Tania Walters says their Scout wheat is about 12% protein, which is great for bread, fresh pasta or biscuits. Buy the whole grains or ask for freshly-ground flour! Find them at Castlemaine.
Heirloom tomatoes: Market gardeners Somerset Heritage Produce are now harvesting heirloom tomatoes. Look for black, yellow, peachy orange and stripy green tomatoes – they all have different acidity and sweetness - on their stall at Boroondara (Hawthorn) and Tallarook.
Delightful eggs: Make the trip to Castlemaine market this Sunday and pick some premium paddock-reared eggs from family farmers The Good Life Farm Co. These eggs are fresh and full of flavour – try them simply fried to taste the difference careful farming makes.
