WA’s Great Graze showcases local produce

  • WA’s Great Grazing Market in Cottesloe today offers a mouth-watering display of local produce
  • The event caps off a month-long campaign celebrating the State’s farmers, fishers and producers

Some of the State’s finest produce is on show for the culmination of WA’s Great Graze, a month-long event celebrating regions involved in bringing delicious food and beverages to the tables of Western Australian consumers.

A curated line-up from 30 vendors is on offer in Cottesloe today (26 March), ranging from Manjimup truffles and Mid-West cold pressed canola oil to local stone fruit, grazing boards and regionally distinctive local wines.

WA’s Great Graze has highlighted produce from all over the State at events in Perth, Manjimup, Pemberton, the Swan Valley, Margaret River, Busselton and Carnarvon, connecting consumers with local producers, as well as culinary and agri-tourism operators.

The March campaign is an initiative supported by the McGowan Government in partnership with Genuinely Southern Forests and the Buy West Eat Best program.

WA’s Great Grazing Market will be at the Cottesloe Civic Centre Gardens today, from 9am to 2pm.

As stated by Agriculture and Food Minister Jackie Jarvis:

“WA’s Great Graze celebrates the importance of cross regional collaboration of agriculture and food and encourages all Western Australians to champion our hard working and innovative farmers, fishers and producers.

“As a key partner of WA’s Great Graze, the Buy West Eat Best program is raising awareness of the ‘buy local food’ message with consumers, retailers, restaurants and WA companies.

“Today’s event provides the opportunity for consumers to have a conversation with a farmer, agri-tourism operator, chef or rural community resident, strengthen those ties between city and country, and build appreciation and awareness of our regional communities.”
