We’re over the Winter Solstice, yet it has been a relatively mild and dry start to winter thus far. Remember to not only pull out your coats, beanies and boots this month but pack reusable bags and a mug for your morning cuppa to shop waste free!

We’re proud as punch to announce that Coburg, Fairfield and Carlton Farmers Markets have all launched a community box for shoppers who have forgotten to bring bags (or maybe have purchased more produce than anticipating- we know that feeling!). If you have extra bags at home, please bring them along and donate for others to use.

Enjoy reading our new-format newsletter and see you at a farmers market soon!
