Every Sunday morning 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, 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. A familiar face at the weekly markets and an avid organic grower is Di Brauer, the president of the Local Producers Association. Some years ago, after battling ill health, Di researched the connection between chemicals, arthritis and inflammation, and consequently stopped using chemical fertilisers. When she started using natural fertilisers, compost and mulch, she believes her health improved.
