After two years based in Woombye, the Hinterland Harvest market is moving to the Wellness Mill in Nambour. Organiser Helen Langlois caught up with HT to share the news.
“The Wellness Mill is opposite Coles; hence we hope to gain more customers and more stallholders. The area has green space and trees, an organic café, covered food court and pantry which is in line with our market ethos – chemical free, organic and sustainable type stalls, as well as conventionally grown produce catering for all customers.”
So where does the produce come from? “Mainly from the Sunshine Coast and surrounds, such as Woombye, Glasshouse, Woodford and Gympie,” explains Helen. “And various fruits from Stanthorpe that don’t grow in the Sunny Coast region due to our warmer climate.”
“Long-term we plan to collaborate with Kylie Smart, the owner from the Wellness Mill and continue to offer and support local farmers and foodies. It’s good to educate the public on healthy food and we will have cooking demos and gardening talks in the coming months, plus supporting backyard farmers to share their abundance.”
Hinterland Harvest will be open every Saturday from 7am – 12 noon, so make a morning of it at the market!
