Show your children a whole new world of fresh produce this summer at a Tropical North Queensland farmers market
Holidaying with your kids can be a fun and educational experience for everyone, especially when it comes to your palate.
If you find yourselves getting tired of the same old barbecue fodder every day, take a trip to one of the many farmer's markets Tropical North Queensland has to offer, and let your tastebuds holiday right along with you.
Once you've got your holiday accommodation sorted, it's time to start exploring the markets. If Cairns is your destination of choice, take a look at Mantra Trilogy located above the Esplanade. It's got a pool, fully air-conditioned units and even your own private balcony from which you can drink in the surrounds while feasting on the best quality food you can find.
"If you're trying to encourage your kids to eat more fruit and vegetables, this is the perfect opportunity to show them how vibrant and appealing fresh produce can be."
After settling in to your holiday resort, take a moment to think about what you're going to have for dinner. If fresh seafood, sumptuous breads and an array of exotic fruits and vegetables are what your family's after, you might want to head down to Rusty's Markets.
Rusty's Market runs over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so it's the perfect weekend outing for you and your little ones. If you're trying to encourage your kids to eat more fruit and vegetables, this is the perfect opportunity to show them how vibrant and appealing fresh produce can be.
Let children choose their own items from the array of colourful delights, and be sure to ask the knowledgeable stallholders if you want to learn more about their unique items. Educate them on the healthy properties of fruit and veg, making sure to emphasise how delicious fresh produce can be - especially when paired with some of the other treats on offer at the market.
