Radio: ABC Rural: The Social Impact of the SAGE Farmers Market

ABC Rural’s Josh Becker recently came to Moruya to interview SAGE Farmers Market Manager Kate Raymond about a study conducted by the University of Canberra into the social impacts of the market on the local community. Josh also interviewed UC researcher Dr Bethaney Turner for some further insights into what the study revealed about the market’s impact on consumers.

A further interview with local vegetable grower Tim Saffery of Queen Street Growers provided some great insight into how one of our most popular stall holders got started.

The UC report “The Social Impact of the SAGE Farmers Market” can be downloaded here.
