Country Style Magazine asked Australia’s top chefs their favourite regional foodie destinations in the June 2018 edition!
Chef, author and restaurateur, Kate Lamont (Lamont’s) was one of 20 chefs who provided readers with information on where they like to eat and their recommended foodie finds.
Kate regular commutes between Perth and the South West. In her travels, one of her favourite foodie haunts is the Bunbury Farmers’ Market:
Bunbury Farmers’ Market is amazing for fruit in season, vegetables, lots of mushroom varieties and locally sourced beef, lamb and chicken.
BunGeo is bursting with sensational produce and Bunbury Farmers’ Market is one of the best places to find paddock to plate fare exploding with flavour. In addition to Kate’s recommendations, grab gourmet pies, handmade soups, the most amazing local and French cheeses, and oh so much more. You won’t be disappointed – people travel miles and miles to fill their baskets.
There is no excuse to eat mass-produced in BunGeo – it’s always fresh, with growers moving with the rhythm of the seasons. Many of our producers are small farmers that have been toiling the land for generations or ‘tree-changers’ who have discovered how real living feels. That said, we are also proud to be home to some of Australia’s largest and most successful producers, including Harvey Beef, Amelia Park Beef and Lamb, Blackwood Valley Beef & Lamb, Taste Dardanup DBC, Harvey Fresh, White Rocks Lamb, Ha Ve Cheese, Karintha Orchards, Sumich Group, Castro Farms, and Pantane Produce.
Don’t stop at one food market! BunGeo recommends the Donnybrook’s Fruit Barn in Donnybrook, Newy’s Vege Patch in Kirup or The Forbidden Fruit in Stratham. In season, drive through the Donnybrook-Balingup and Harvey regions to pick up produce roadside or from packing stores. Plus, more than 13-weekend markets operate regularly across the region.
