It's September. It's "hungry gap" time.
This is what the hungry gap looks like at our market.
Every spring, veggie growers start to get very low on winter crops. Then there's the double whammy of the soil not being warm enough yet to get new crops powering.
Over the next couple of months, we can expect the supply of veggies to be tight. When you source your food from your local food system, these are the sorts of challenges you need to overcome. That's why home gardening is a vital part of a strong local food system. Your own backyard is what can help you through the hungry gap. And that's why SAGE is running a heap of workshops on how to grow veggies at home. . Check the Events page on the SAGE website for more information: sageproject.org.au/events . But the market isn't just veggies. We still have all our fabulous fish, meat, dairy and other value adding producers at the market, ready to fill your table with locally grown food! So no need to stay away until summer... keep supporting your local growers by shopping at Riverside Park every Tuesday afternoon from 3pm.
