Melbourne Farmers’ Markets will host a Fair Food Forum at our Carlton Farmers’ Market on Saturday 18 October.

It’ll be a ripsnorter!
Then our Fair Food Forum … with an eye on Victoria’s forthcoming elections, we’ve invited local politicians to speak on agriculture, food security and a local food act. This is a prime opportunity to ask candidates where they stand on these subjects and more.
