All three will be a showcase for what our growers, farmers, and producers are championing in this region.
With the recent COVID-19 lockdown having a devastating impact on Tastes of Moreton Bay and Caboolture Festival, notably the Moreton Bay Food and Wine Festival, this is a chance to rally behind Moreton Bay’s producers.
It starts tomorrow with an invitation-only breakfast bringing together those connected to Moreton Bay agribusiness, including producers, industry representatives, all levels of government, CSC Group members and senior management.
The menu will feature produce grown in Moreton Bay, served while hearing from keynote speakers including Kelvin Patch, CEO CSC Group and Chair Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay; Tony Clarke, CSC Sports & Community Manager; Emma Greenhatch, CEO Food & Agribusiness Network and Nick Steiner, CEO The Mini Farm Project.
On Saturday at 10am Caboolture Sports Club, in Station Rd, Morayfield, will open its doors to farmers and producers in Moreton Bay, enabling them to hold a stall, free of charge, at the Meet me at the Bay Markets.
Entry iso free for the public to attend and buy incredible products while supporting local producers. For more information visit https://www.visitmoretonbayregion.com.au/tastes-events/meet-me-at-the-bay-markets
