Farmers market for Townsville: what do you think?
During the last local government elections Townsville Greens candidates proposed that a farmers market be established in Townsville. It seemed like an excellent idea that's time had come and now it looks like our council has had the good sense, with other northern councils, to take the idea further. That process starts with us taking three minutes to complete a survey on the idea.
A local farmers' market, by definition, is a market where only fresh food and value-added products that have been produced, grown, prepared or caught locally are sold.
Representatives from each of the Local Councils in North Queensland and State Government are proposing to undertake a collaborative feasibility study into the creation of a Farmers' Market (or markets) to service the North Queensland Region (Burdekin, Charters Towers, Townsville, Magnetic and Palm Island and Hinchinbrook local government areas).
The online survey has been developed on Townsville City Council's website to guage initial public support (or otherwise) for the proposal.
The three minute online survey (click here) is your big chance to have a say.
