Melbourne Farmers’ Markets: November
Posted in Movements by Kate Archdeacon on November 5th, 2010
The Cup is done and won for another year and that means tomato planting time. This month you’ll find CERES with organic seedlings at all markets, Russell from Kensington Garden Centre at Veg Out and Gasworks, and Howard Gibb, all the way from Whitlands in North East Victoria at Collingwood and Slow Food at the Abbotsford Convent. All have a fantastic range of self-propagated seedlings for backyards and balconies plus great advice.
The season is gradually catching up after the long, cold winter and you’ll find strawberries, broad beans, garlic shoots and snow peas back in season. Fare thee well to several apple, citrus, kiwifruit and nut growers, but let yourself dream in anticipation of the season’s luscious stone fruit, which is reported to have greatly benefitted by all that early spring rain… it’s just around the corner!
