eat local week market day at the organic shed

Celebrating Eat Local Week, the Boonah Organisation for a Sustainable Shire (BOSS) will host a Market Day at the Organic Shed, Milford Road Boonah between 8am and 1pm on Saturday June 30.

Set in the lovely open air environment under the shade of the grand old silky oak, the day will feature local organic food and produce, live entertainment and market stalls.

BOSS secretary Julie Jackson says “Like our recent successful World Environment Day Festival, we’re pleased to again showcase some of our local producers, foodies and craftspeople.”

“Expect to taste some great local food, with the added bonus of it being pesticide free and organic. Raw food and sourdough will again feature, as well as some less common
produce like finger limes and lemon myrtle.”

“There’ll be lots of local products available including Elite Meats smallgoods, delicious cakes, biscuits and slices, camp oven damper and juices all prepared from mostly local ingredients.”

“Some of our talented local performers will be entertaining, and there’ll be a good selection of artisan stalls focusing on hand made, home made and home grown, including leadlight, goats milk soap and upcycled items.”

Also on site at the Organic Shed are the resident goats and sheep with hopefully an expected newborn lamb arriving before Market Day.

“We welcome everyone to come along and check out the range of food that’s grown locally and enjoy a delicious morning tea or lunch.”

Visitors can also bring along things which BOSS collects for recycling ventures. These include mobile phones and accessories, corks, old plastic store cards, old running shoes, and bras which are in good condition.

“Anyone wanting to have a stall is encouraged to get in touch with us”, says Julie.

Eat Local Week, will run from Sunday June 24 to Sunday July 1 across the Scenic Rim, celebrating local food of the region and focusing on products grown on our local farms and in local gardens, local ingredients used in our restaurants and the businesses and people who are making locally-grown food more accessible in the Scenic Rim community. 

See the information online for all the events across the Scenic Rim.
