Just before Xmas I took in the Moss Vale Farmers’ and Flea Market in the spacious surrounds of Moss Vale Showground in the Southern Highlands.
It’s a not-for-profit market, with a focus on producers and growers from the local district.
My favourite stall had to be Beefalicious who raise Ausline and Lowline cattle in neighbouring Suttons Forest. Their beef is grass-fed, tender, fine-grained and juicy; and they make a mean snag-on-a-stick too – the wild mushroom and garlic were a particular favourite. You’ll also find Pepe Saya’s excellent butter and a range of local truffle products at their stall.
Other market must-haves include Lady Bucket’s brilliant duck pate...
...and the local baker’s fluffy pumpkin damper rolls.
The baker incidentally makes a point of using local products (like Robertson potatoes and Bowral Phatt Duck Onions) in her breads too!
I was even lucky enough to attend on a month the local Country Women's Association had a stall - check out all that gingham!
I am always delighted to see unbleached Australian garlic - and inevitably end up buying some every time I do see it!
As this market is having a break in January, plan your trip to arrive between 8am-1pm for the fourth Saturday of February.
