The real stars of Eat Local Week are the award winning producers, growers and flavour makers, with the event providing the ultimate backstage pass to the farms, wineries, faces and food stories of the Scenic Rim.
Eat Local Week started in 2011 when a group of local producers, farmers and tourism operators planted the idea as a way to shine the light on the flavours and faces of the region; an event to encourage people to look to their backyard for seasonal food and pay tribute to the people that produce it. That year 10 events were staged.
There’s also a full line-up of delicious entrée events in June to tantalise the tastebuds. Find out more about Eat Local Week online at eatlocalweek.com.au.
