Shop local produce and stick around for a picnic at the Spring Harvest Festival
Sydney Living Museums are putting on a marketplace of spring fare at the colonial homestead, Elizabeth Farm. There’ll be an artisan food market and cooking demonstrations from Brasserie Bread, Cornersmith, Eat Me Chutneys, Broomfield’s Pies and Sydney Living Museums’ colonial gastronomer Jacqui Newling and Elizabeth Farm’s curator Scott Hill.
For the first time this year there’ll be a Crop Swap – a cashless market where you can bring your own homegrown produce to swap with others. Gardeners can bring a sample of their soil to be tested for its safety or pick up seedlings from the seed library.
Kids can learn about the art of making handmade cultured dairy products or explore the kitchen garden and learn about edible flowers.
Pack a picnic rug and pick up food to eat from the vendors, or enjoy a homemade Devonshire tea at the Elizabeth Farm Tearooms. Entry to the festival is free.
