If you are curious about chocolate or ready to go nuts for fudge, then don’t miss the next popular Cooma-Monaro Railway Fresh Produce Markets.
The Cooma Monaro Railway (CMR) started hosting the markets last year, and is encouraging visitors to the region to come along and purchase the best local produce the Snowy Monaro has to offer.
The Cooma Railway Station is the perfect setting for the markets with stalls set up along the grand platform. Not only can market lovers enjoy the tastes and delights of the region, they can immerse themselves in railway station’s history.
Whether it is fresh fruit and vegetables, or something sweet and savoury, the next produce markets are scheduled for Sunday June 13 from 9am to 1pm.
CMR President Gordon Strachan said the Cooma Railway Station is an ideal location for a community produce market because it combines the picturesque setting of the historic precinct with the benefits of local produce.
“The station is self-contained for parking, power and facilities, plus the platform verandah provides cover for smaller stores,” he said.
“It is the perfect setting for an escape from the everyday, where you can buy local produce, admire the museum and enjoy the flavours of the coffee and food stalls.
CMR has engaged with growers, farmers, produce makers and food stall holders to create the market. Interested parties are welcome to contact CMR organisers by email:
The following stall holders are regulars at the produce markets: Curiosity Chocolates, Ironpot Artisan Alpine Bakery, Eucumbene Trout Farm, Monaro Produce Growers, Coffee 2630, Two Chooks Cook (cakes, slices, jams), Carwoola Honey, Snowy Mountain Estate, Let’s Go Nuts and Fudge, Tandarra Eggs, Snowy Mountains Eucalyptus Soap, RSPCA Cooma Branch, and Outback Fudge.
