For centuries, farmers made the trek into a town or village to sell their produce at market. The lively markets provided essential food supplies and were an important focus for the local community.
Today, Eden's colourful farmers markets are helping to revive that tradition, by providing quality local produce, sold by the people in the know - the farmers, growers, bakers and makers themselves.
