Scenic Rim Eat Local Week got off to a popular start in Beaudesert, officially getting under way on 25 June.

Beaudesert Community Arts and Information Centre welcomed visitors to try locally made goodies at their tasting tables on 25-26 June, Rathlogan Olive Grove offered tastings and Rathdowney Visitor Information Centre hosted a local themed small market on 26 June.

The Beaudesert Street Food Festival attracted big crowds at Jubilee Park on 26 June, with locals queuing up to treat themselves at the food trucks and buy handcrafted wares from small businesses.

Locals were out in force at the sold-out annual Jamming with the Lambs at Towri Sheep Cheeses on 25 June, dining on a local meal prepared by Kooralbyn chef Lana Bissett and listening to live music by local singer Amy-Leigh Fry.

The inaugural Chef’s Table Dinner at The Copperhead Café was also a sold-out event, with head chef Kirk Page serving up a seven-course wood fired dinner.

Eat Local Week finishes on 3 July after a program of more than 125 events across the region.
