It was a beautiful Thursday morning to check out the Byron Farmers markets at the new location at the Cavanbah Centre.

The farmers markets are always great for saving money and getting the freshest produce available whilst supporting local farmers!! Not to mention the great breakfast and coffee options available and the quality live music and entertainment. What a great way to start the day!

Farmers Market!

Every Thursday we have a Farmers Market here in Byron Bay!

It’s a great place to buy some fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables 🙂

Our teachers often take their students there as part of their lesson, which is always a fun and delicious excursion for everyone! Last week Kathleen took her Intermediate class to practice food and cooking vocabulary; they all had a great morning in the sunshine and picked up some healthy treats!

Reports from the Farmers’ Market

Last week Paul’s FCE class went on an excursion to the Farmers’ Market. The purpose was to do some research so that they could write an exam format report about their visit.

The full reports are in the photos below, but here are some of the highlights from a class of very talented writers.

At the market you can find many different stalls selling a wide range of things, such  as fresh organic vegetables, fruits, organic coffee and different kinds of juices. Besides this, you can buy a breakfast and eat it there enjoying a good live music.    Julio

I think the local market plays a good role in local business. Nowadays, it’s difficult to get fresh and organic local products due to the fact that there are many supermarket chains. We tend to buy everything there owing to the low-priced. I believe we can make our life better if we contribute to local business.     Sakiko

The only problem we can find is the prices of products, but this is the sign of quality that marks the difference between the organic products at the farmers’ market and what you get at supermarkets.         Maria

The market takes place at the Rails Park every Thursday in the morning between 8am and 11am. I definitely recommend this market for everybody who wants to go shopping for fresh food and have fun while doing it.      Gabriel

Thank you to Nil and Cesc, from Paul’s class, who are responsible for the beautiful photos.
