The Margaret River Region has one of the world’s greatest climates to produce premium wine, and the same can be said about the region’s ability to grow impeccable produce.
Specialty growers and producers are part of a food movement that is taking over the region. Heirloom organic sun ripened fruit and vegetables, grass fed beef and lamb, daily caught seafood, venison, marron (freshwater crayfish endemic to the South West of Western Australia), native foods, free range eggs, organic dairy, olives, olive oils, wood fired bread, traditional French baked goods, artisan cheeses, chocolates, fudges, sweets, coffee and ice cream are just some of the outstanding foods being produced.
It is easy to enjoy the produce as most of the restaurants feature it on their menus. But to experience the ‘movement’ in full swing, taste your way around the Margaret River Farmers’ Market – on every Saturday morning 8.00am to 12 noon at the Margaret River Education Campus. There’re also great markets on in Busselton, Vasse, Dunsborough.
