Camden Produce Markets ♦ Historic Walking Tour ♦ CVI Lunch
This self-drive tour combines the best things to do in Camden in one tour for you. It commences at the Camden Produce Markets where you will get the opportunity to sample everything from artisan breads, cakes and cheeses, to olive oils, organic produce, as well as arancini, stuffed olives, cider, and honey. The market is held each Saturday at Camden Town Farm from 7am. It’s the only genuine farmers market in NSW operating on a working farm and attracts around 30 stallholders every week. Here you’ll have the chance to learn about sustainable lifestyles, to meet the growers, the chefs, and to reconnect with where food comes from.
