Our message this week comes from the Bendigo Community Weekly Farmers' Market. We're sharing it because we need local shoppers to keep supporting all our accredited farmers' markets:
"It was more important than ever during lock down that we supported local and got out of supermarkets and large retailers and into small businesses and farmers markets.
It made us feel connected during a time of great disconnection and our local producers benefited and delighted in delivering the goods... literally.
We could connect with those that made, grew and produced our food, buy direct and look the person in the eye and know our money went straight into their pocket.
While the desperate times of 2020 are behind us, our farmers market still needs you.
While we start to return to a new normal, let shopping local to feed your family with hearty local produce be the habit you changed in 2020 and bought into YOUR new normal!"
Thank you for continuing to read this newsletter and connect with us - enjoy your shopping this week!
