Meet our local South Coast growers and producers
At Nowra Farmers Market, not only are we committed to providing our community with the freshest, seasonal produce, we also have a strong desire to support local farmers and producers in the South Coast region. Our relationship with nearby growers means produce often makes it from the farm to our shelves within 24 hours of harvesting. Here’s a brief introduction to just some of our local growers and producers.
Terara Farm, Terara
A hobby farm managed by a group of South Coast locals, the land is leased in exchange for fresh produce. The farm grows spinach, pumpkins, carrots, shallots, beetroots, rhubarb, potatoes and cauliflower. Their vegetables often make it to Nowra Farmers Market on the same day they are picked!
