The Springwood Growers Market will hold its final market for 2018 one week early on Sunday, December 16.
The market is usually held on the fourth Sunday of every month at the Blue Mountains Community Hub in Macquarie Road – billed as the place where residents can get regional food “straight from the paddock to your plate”.
The final market for 2018 will feature 53 stalls selling a range of Christmas food and produce – from Christmas puddings and hams to cherries – as well as eco-friendly gift ideas.
Springwood Growers Market owner Nicole Riley said the range on offer will include olive oils, beer, cider and wine, fresh bread, organic vegetables and eggs, free range meats, pasta, bagels, cakes, chocolates, coffee and jams and preserves.
“There’s pretty much something for everyone,” she said.
Willem Sherlock Roorda will be playing live music at the market and the Springwood Neighbourhood Centre will also be open.
“I’m really happy the locals have supported our local and regional farmers who come every month, rain, hail or shine, and bring their fresh produce,” said Mrs Riley.
The first Springwood Growers Market of 2019 will also be held on a different date – and at a different venue. The January market will be held at Springwood Public School on Saturday, January 26, in conjunction with the Australia Day Festival organised by Lower Mountains Fundraising Events.
