A SUNNY morning at the grower's market was the perfect way to start the Saturday in Tamworth.
Residents headed to the markets in droves to BIcentennial Park.
There was plenty of homegrown goodies and fresh produce, like tomatoes grown at King George V Avenue and pastries made by a french-trained patissier.
Olives grown without chemicals, hand-harvested, pressed and bottled on a small grove outside of Loomberah were also on offer, along with handmade soaps, shampoo and skincare.
And with healthcare officials warning the public to social distance to slow the spread of coronavirus [covid-19], it was the perfect opportunity to stock up on some preserves, fermented fruits, honey and seasonal produce.
For the artists, Tamworth's own Pam Oliver paints flowers from her garden with card prints of her paintings and makes her own insect hotels to attract birds and bugs.
The markets are on every Saturday morning at Kable Avenue.
