The Green Shed Produce Markets
Every Sunday morning from 7.00am to noon at the Tamborine Mountain Showground, local growers gather in The Green Shed to deliver their homegrown produce. The market is run by the Tamborine Mountain Local Producers Association, a not-for-profit group of mostly mountain-dwelling retirees with one thing in common — a passion for growing organic vegies.
The market, open to the community from seven o’clock, sells freshly picked, seasonal, certified and non-certified organic fruit and vegetables, fresh breads, as well as honey, coffee, jams, preserves, chilled kefir, herbs and plants.
Most produce is picked the day before, or in the early hours of the morning of the market — it couldn’t be fresher.
Local producers bring up produce they’ve grown — no sprays and chemical-free, and members that are certified organic, too. The producers bring up any excess produce they don’t use, and sell it to locals and visitors at The Green Shed.
The Green Shed local producers provide the local community with lovely fresh produce. For most, it’s a hobby and it’s a love of growing fresh vegies. It’s our lifestyle. Dig in the dirt. Play in the dirt. You know, you eat what you grow.
