Gasworks Arts Park is thrilled to announce that the fabulous Gasworks Farmers Market received the Outstanding Farmers Market Award at the 2012 delicious. Produce Awards.
The coveted annual award ceremony was held last night at Stokehouse, Brisbane and was hosted by culinary critic Matt Preston.
Established in 2005, the awards highlight small and artisan producers and a growing interest in sustainability, with nominations doubling this year to 2000.
Gasworks’ Operations and HR Manager Michele Domonkos said the team at Gasworks were delighted to hear the Farmers Market had received the prestigious accolade.
“Everyone at Gasworks is very excited to have our Farmers Market acknowledged at the 2012 delicious. Produce Awards,” she said.
“Our Farmers Market has been running since 2006 and we are very proud of all the stall holders and Gasworks staff who work so hard to make the market run smoothly each month.”
Victorian state judge Paul Wilson praised the Gasworks Farmers Market for its contribution to Victoria’s thriving food and produce industry.
“At Gasworks you see restaurateurs, chefs, bloggers and home cooks all mingling together,” he said.
“This Melbourne market gives exposure to Victoria’s best suppliers all in one arena.”
Ms. Domonkos specifically thanked Gasworks’ Farmers Market Manager Shirley Billing and the Victorian Farmers Market Association.
“Special thanks should also go to Gasworks Farmers Market Manager Shirley Billing and to Miranda and the team at VFMA. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next Farmers Market on Saturday July 21st.”
