Fresh Produce Markets In South Gippsland

It’s always so nice to see the great turn up of people at the local farmers markets, for the arts and crafts and freshly grown organic produce in so many of the towns in South Gippsland. Places like Foster, Cowes, Coal Creek, Churchill Island, Grantville Inverloch, Jumbunna, Newhaven, Korumburra, Loch, Leongatha, Philip Island, Tarwin Lower, Mirboo North, Wonthaggi and Yarram all seem to have markets on a regular basis.

This particular photo of fresh vegetables, silver-beet, spring onions, sweet potato, beans celery, capsicum, lettuce, pumpkin, was taken at the Organic Produce Market in Koonwarra.

Here’s a complete list of Markets, Stalls, secondhand goods and Craft Fairs in South Gippsland



Photos Of Koonwarra

I’ve always been impressed with the features of Koonwarra, its upmarket shops, day spa, organically inspired farmers market, pretty scenery, large display of autumn trees lining the highway, the terrific cycling/walking trail and the friendliness of the people.

On this page are some nice photos I took in KOONWARRA are few years ago of the autumn leaves, shops, streets, flowers, fruit and vegetables, the nursery, gardens etc … and here are even more pictures of Koonwarra and the surrounding towns too.

Vegetables Planted On Roadsides

We’ve often commented on how appreciative we are that the local South Gippsland Shire Council organises regular seasonal planting of flowers, ornamentals and even vegetables on the roundabouts and curbside gardens in our area.

These coloured Swiss chard stalks, luscious green silver beet leaves, spring onions and masses of thyme were photographed in Main Street Foster and we also spotted sunflowers, crab apples and even corn. The “Companion Planting Guides” recommend that silver beet goes well with Onions, Beetroot and Lavender, while thyme is useful around any of the cabbage family.
