At the recent Lower Chittering Farmers Markets people came from near and far to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors at the Lower Chittering Hall.
In attendance were the familiar locals, who always seem to be make the effort to support local initiatives, but also a surprising number of Perth people. It seems the successive years of events in the valley such Lower Chittering Farmers Market as the very popular Christos Farmers Markets and past Taste of Chittering festivities have captured the heart of many Perth suburbanites who welcome opportunities to get out of the city for the day.
Stallholders at the Farmers markets, who will also be in attendance at this years Taste of Chittering, are hopeful that a big crowd will come to celebrate and enjoy produce.
New to Chittering’s markets was son of WA’s Avon Valley Pistachio Australia, Dave Hemmings who is in the process of building a new home in Lower Chittering. Keen to make the most of his new home Dave has played a key role in gathering together local stall holders for the farmer’s market and the upcoming Taste of Chittering. For me there is no bag big enough as far as these irresistible nuts are concerned.
Other produce on offer included Wines including; Bindoon Estate and Glenowen as well as local jams, ready made spices or DIY spices and more. I forgot to
grab some cash on the way so my take homes were a lot less than I desired (note to self – take cash) but I did go home with some fresh beetroot and ordered a couple of Pistachio trees to pick up at “Taste” on the 7th September. See you there.
