Castle Hill Farmers and Fine Food Markets. Saturday 14 November, 8am to 12pm

Pop on down to these fresh food markets – it’s a great Saturday morning if the sun’s shining. If you haven’t been, click here for an idea of what to expect. There’s an array of locally made gourmet food and produce, including cheeses, breads, traditional pastas, fresh fruit and veg and in our opinion the best bacon and egg roll in the Hills. Castle Hill Showground, Saturday 14 November, 8am to 12pm.
