Farmers and produce markets
The Gold Coast delivers a metropolitan city experience
grounded by the simplicity of country life found in the
hinterland. The farmers' market is an icon of this country's
existance and gives easy access to the freshest local
produce and a uniquue way to experience the Gold Coast
and take home an edible souvenir.
However the hinterland no longer has the monopoly on
farmers' markets with luxury beach resort settings bringing
the freshest produce to the finest sand. A trip to any one
of the Gold Coast's markets can mean a shopping bag full
of local cheeses, pickles, jams, smoked pate, fresh pineapples,
organic vegetables or salad greens.
