Aussie Artisan Week

This week Carriageworks Farmers Market stallholder and butter producer Pepe Saya launched​ Aussie Artisan Week​ (August 17-23) encouraging all Australians to consciously choose to support and purchase Australian made products, buying direct from  artisans where they can.

Aussie Artisan Week aims to introduce Australian consumers to a range of quality products and the benefits  of choosing local products: because of taste and quality, but also because they are in turn supporting  farmers and small businesses, particularly as they continue to grapple with the restrictions in place due to  the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve been incredibly appreciative of all our customers who have supported us by buying Pepe Saya  through our online store over the past four months.” says Pierre Issa. “We’ve  realised that Australians do value Australian made, and we want to continue to share how many amazing  options there are out there from dairy to meat, fresh veg and even homewares. Plus, why it’s better  all-around when you buy small and buy local. The product comes to you fresh, the process is more  sustainable, and the money you spend goes directly back into the Australian economy.”

This Saturday, support your local artisans and share your Carriageworks Farmers Market purchases using the hashtag #AussieArtisanWeek
