The Northern Rivers region punches way above its weight for food. It doesn’t matter what time of year, there is always something tasty going down in this region. We are a premier food producing region in Australia (and the world!), so it’s no surprise that we like to showcase our stuff! We encourage our local community & visitors alike to graze their way around the region – come along and enjoy our fantastic local food events throughout the year.
Really, who wouldn’t prefer to eat fresh, locally produced food from our abundant Northern Rivers region? We all know that eating locally produced food helps the environment, is fresher, tastier, healthier and supports local communities. This region has so many great local farmers’ markets & community gardens. They offer a great way to spend the morning choosing your fresh produce for the week. Importantly though, it’s a great way to connect with others in our community and support the people who are growing our food – our wonderful farmers & producers!
