BRING the whole family to help celebrate the Lismore Organic Market's 17th birthday on Tuesday.

Come enjoy a morning filled with entertainment, food, workshops and fun. Whether you're interested in basket weaving or cooking or just some free cake there's going to be something for everyone.

This market will be bigger and better than ever with loads of extra artisan stalls and handmade treasures. Our local chef Sam Wise will be cooking up a storm on the day to show you how easy it is to eat seasonally at the Organic Market.

There will also be plenty of fun games and activities for children including our annual children's art exhibition so bring your children along for some school holidays entertainment.

Our main attraction, of course, is the wonderful weekly range of high quality organic certified vegetables picked only hours before you purchase them.

Watch our Lismore Organic Market Facebook page for more information about the day.
