The Katherine Community Market – a weekly farmers’ market, offering fresh local produce, breakfast and entertainment in the park – is proving popular and a great place for people to sell and access local produce. It’s a great example of a ‘creating opportunity’ for local people who might be growing food gardens at home or in their communities and who would like to sell some of their produce (from farm and garden to the table!). The Katherine Community Market is an exciting new community minded initiative that builds on earlier work done by Katherine women to form the Katherine Region Food Processing Group. Led by Norma Higgins, the group established a public commercial kitchen and approved food processing facilities that people can access to cook, process and package foods for sale or local consumption.
