Last week we received this email from a lovely couple who are newsletter subscribers:
"Hi VFMA team,
We'd like to let you know how much we appreciate your efforts to make the farmers markets safe to visit.
As elderly folk, devoted to our Melbourne farmers markets, we appreciate more than ever how privileged we are to be able to continue to buy the freshest, quality produce available in these difficult times.
Many thanks to you, our wonderful producers and all involved in the stirling effort to facilitate safe access to the best.
Stay well, stay safe."
Our market managers are telling us how important the support and thanks of their local communities have been in these times.
Our producers are telling us that their customers are thanking them for continuing to sell their food at the farmers' markets.
It's such a simple thing but it makes such a difference.
We all really appreciate your support, so thank you.
And please, stay well and stay safe too.
