TIPS AND TRICKS from THE BEACHES MARKETS (WARRIWOOD EVERY FRIDAY) 

When you first go to any food markets, it can be a bit of a daunting and expensive experience. Who has the best stuff at the best price? What hat should I wear? But after going to these markets for a few years and now having a stall there, I feel like I should share some of the things I have learnt to make everything a little easier for you and your wallet. 

Firstly, markets are all about creating bonds. Here are a few beautiful connections I have made and why I buy their products… 

  • First of all, you can’t got past the one and only James and Ben at @prickle_hill_produce. These guys rock. They have amazing lemons, plums and oranges which they grow at their farm 15kms South West of Coleambally NSW. These guys are absolute legends. 

  • Yuri the apple man for spray free $10 bag of the best apples ever

  • Mithu - his store is only tomatoes, herbs, sometimes strawberries and cucumbers. He is also spray free.

  • Bread from the very talented Tom @berkelo.au. His rye sourdough (made the proper sourdough way) and croissants are off the chain.

  • Lucas and Max at @oceana_traders  for wild salmon and other great line caught fish.

  • @caseus_cheeseshop for biodynamic cheese and cultured butter.

  • Meat from @freerangebutcherThey often have ox tail which is great if you need to boost your iron intake. 

  • For other produce @johnsonsfarmgate have a lot of spray free options if you cant go fully organic.

  • For all other organic goodness you can trust the guys at @onetablelife to have beautiful produce and a large variety. 

  • Amee for all your not so guilty pleasures @loverawtreats. The best 100% organic raw treats I have ever had! 

  • @mattyshealthypizzabases for awesome gluten free pizza bases and tomato sauces.  

I hope this helps. If you need a hand come find me and I can point you in the right direction.
