Win 1 of 5 eFarmer's Market Gourmet Tasting Boxes!

The reason why I like buying regional products is because the products are often artisan handmade in small batches and contain only what you would use if you were making them back at home. There are multi award winning products because a lot of care is taken with the products to put the best quality produce in them. These producers can't stock their items in supermarkets because supermarkets require very large quantities of items among other reasons and so they usually just sell it on their premises and freight is another huge hurdle for these businesses. So eFarmer's Market consolidates these wonderful producers and sells the products on their behalf to help bring together the consumer with the artisan!

Their website (http://www.efarmersmarket.com.au) just launched this very week and you can buy items individually or you can package them up as a gift. Some of the products I've been lucky enough to try on my travels including a divine Gwydir Grove Agrumato lemon olive oil (agrumato is where they crush whole fruit along with the olives instead of using essences as flavour), Lynwood's fabulous caramelised onion marmalade, Bramble Patch eggplant kasundi or Mount Zero mixed olives which contain tiny and delicious little olives.
