A NEW initiative by local sheep farmer, Dallas Davidson of Towri Sheep Cheeses, gives consumers the opportunity to form strong connections with the people who grow their food.

Dallas says Towri Growers’ Market goes a bit deeper than a local producers’ market.

“The idea is to create a mateship between consumers and farmers and actually talk to your farmers face to face, find out what’s in season,” she said.

The first monthly market will be held on February 3 from 9am to 2pm, with a range of producers offering farm fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products and more.

Dallas Davidson from Towri Sheep Cheeses said, “Following the Christmas Day tornado on Tamborine Mountain and the recent flooding, it is even more important for people to support the growers and producers of the region.” 

“Our producer community is resilient, we’ve lived through fire, floods, drought, Covid, and now a tornado, but we need people from all over South East Queensland to come and support us, to buy direct from us as growers and producers, to get to know us, to share our stories and become our extended family.” 

“We are calling on our locals to swap the grocery aisle for the farm in 2024.”

“We promise a brilliant market, plus lots to do – there’s sheep milking demonstrations, loads of sheep pats, great lawn games, wine tasting and more, and fur babies are welcome!”

Regular producers attending the monthly market are names known, loved and highly respected and awarded, including Tommerup Dairy Farm, Towri Sheep Cheeses, Valley Pride Produce, Harry’s Paddock, The Black Bee Apiary, Barney Creek Vineyard, the chefs from Embers Woodfire, The Lingering Baker and many more.
