Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods.
The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets.
Jan singularly pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food. Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, a market on Sundays in Mitchelton, and a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place that attracts some 5,000 city workers and residents!...
