Camden Council is seeking applications from produce market stallholders for an exciting new addition to the annual Taste Food Wine and Music Festival.
Produce Lane will be launched as part of the festival and will showcase a range of fresh and local food.
The event is a feature of the Camden Festival that attracts more than 5,000 people and will include seasonal fruit and vegetables, meats, seafood, baked goods, spices, cheeses and specialty food products as well as food-related items and gifts.
The festival will be on Sunday, September 23 in Camden Town Farm.
“Taste is a highlight of our annual Spring celebration that continues to grow in variety and popularity,” says Mayor Lara Symkowiak.
“The addition of a produce lane will add another dimension to the event and allow people to take local produce home to enjoy,” she said.
“This is the perfect opportunity for local farmers, bakers, fromagers and others to showcase their products in the Camden community.”
Stallholders are invited to visit camdenfestival.com.au for more information and to apply.
Applications close on August 26.

Construction of an amenities building at a new park on Burrell Road, Spring Farm is about to start.
The park was built by a developer as part of a voluntary planning agreement and quickly proved to be popular when it was opened last year.
Earlier this year Camden Council installed shade sails to the playground area.
Construction is scheduled to be complete by August 30.
The total project cost is $180,000.
The design includes two accessible unisex toilets, solar and battery powered lighting, maintenance store room and textured materials for a contemporary look.
Access to the park will be maintained during construction.
