Top gong for Farmers’ Market

Launceston Farmers’ Market won a trophy for best market of its type in the land at the delicious. Produce Awards in Melbourne in August. The popular weekly event is held in Cimitiere Street on Saturday mornings from 8.30am to 12.30pm. Tasmanian businesses also collected six gold medals at the prestigious national awards, including four in the From the Earth category where Cygnet Mushroom (Farm Gourmet Specialty Mushrooms), Wellington Apiary (Leatherwood Pure Tasmanian Honey), Weston Farm (Smoked Paprika) and Meru Miso (Sweet White Miso) were all successful. Chris and Meagan de Bono started Meru Miso in Melbourne four years ago, before relocating to Launceston last year. Pyengana Dairy Company won a From the Dairy gold medal for its 12+ Months Tasty Cheddar, while Mole Creek’s Springfield Deer Farm won a From the Paddock gold medal for its venison.
