Harvest market

This morning I popped into the Harvest Market in the Cimitiere Street car park in Launceston and bought a Ritual coffee and brioche from Manubread for breakfast. Picked up some fresh vegetables, some bacon from Mount Gnomon Farm, some granola from Day Time Food and some Mount Direction Olive Oil. It was a cool and cloudy day but the atmosphere at the market was warm and welcoming. And it was nice to see a little piece of the Huon Valley on show at the Willie Smiths Cider stall.

Yesterday I drove up to Launceston for a presentation by last year's participants in the Tasmanian Leaders program about the four fantastic community projects they have either completed or underway. Somehow it was appropriate to follow it up with a visit to the Harvest Market, which was also a project launched by past participants in the Tasmanian Leaders program. Clearly a successful one, as last week the market was the national winner of an Outstanding Farmers Market award. Applications for the 2014 Tasmanian Leaders program are now open - have you considered applying?
