I Choose SA Farmers Market Weekend

by Jess Engleson

On Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February 2017, Brand South Australia is putting a spotlight on the importance of choosing local produce through their I Choose SA Farmers’ Market Weekend.

The weekend, part of the I Choose SA campaign, encourages customers, businesses and suppliers to choose local in their purchasing decisions.

South Australian produce is amongst the best in the world and what better place to celebrate this than the Farmers’ Market. When people choose SA for fresh produce they are not only getting a great product, they’re supporting everyone who puts their time into making these products, and helping them enjoy a secure future.
