Shop local produce and stick around for a picnic at the Spring Harvest Festival
Following the success of the Autumn Harvest at Rouse Hill Farm, 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, Pepe Saya, Cornersmith and Sydney Living Museums’ horticulturalist Anita Rayner.
Visitors can learn about the art of making handmade cultured dairy products, find out how sourdough bread is made, and learn how to embrace traditional and sustainable practices for pickling and gardening. You can explore the kitchen garden and learn about edible flowers, too, with the help of Mickey Robertson of Glenmore House.
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 by gold coin donation.
