Boot up to support Australian farming families

Boots – any kind – gumboots, work boots, riding boots, tap boots, cowboy boots, fashion boots – will all feature at this special Southern Harvest Farmers Market BOOTS FOR CHANGE Market Day. Boots have been chosen as the symbol to promote farmers markets and to celebrate our hardworking farmers and their families.

This market is part of the national 2016 BOOTS FOR CHANGE Support Farming Families awareness campaign, organised by the Australian Farmers’ Markets Association (AFMA) during April. Over 40 farmers markets will host over 60 BOOTS FOR CHANGE Market Days in all states.

We want people to put boots on and head down to their local farmers market to show local producers that we care and want them to keep producing healthy farm fresh Australian food. It’s something everyone can do!

So do head down to our local farmers market and support BOOTS FOR CHANGE in April to raise awareness of farmers’ markets and encourage vital community conversations – about local food, supporting local farming families and encouraging regional youth to explore opportunities in agriculture.

Market shoppers are asked to shop in boots; stallholders will do more than just wear boots so you can expect plenty of boot action – and prizes from Platinum Boot Partner Blundstone.

Expect plenty of boot action at our market.

“We’re asking shoppers – and stallholders – to put their best boots forward. It is amazing how this idea resonates; people are very passionate about supporting farming families and promoting agriculture to boost the local economy,” said Samantha Hawker, manager of the Southern Harvest Farmers Market in Bungendore.
