Are you staying in Launceston for the festive holidays? Then make sure to rise bright and early on Saturday morning for the weekly Harvest Market!

Make your way to foodie heaven to sample some of Tasmania's finest produce including fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and olives, pastries, breads and other delicious baked goods, jams, honeys and chutneys, meats, dairy and a selection of the island's famous cool-climate wines.

The market runs every Saturday morning from 08:30 to 12:30 at the Cimitiere Street car park (opposite the Grand Chancellor hotel), where you can be sure to find a delightful treat for breakfast and some local goodies to take home with you.

It's not only food on display at the market though with stalls also displaying flowers, plants, herbs, seedlings and other products to meet your gardening needs.

If you love everything dairy make sure to try some of Meander Valley Dairy's produce! Use a dollop of their double cream in a delicious berry fruit salad or to help create a scrumptious vanilla panna cotta.

You can also use their creme fraiche to drizzle over a decadent chocolate cake or scoop a dollop onto a fresh baked fish – add a lemon drizzle and you will be in heaven!

If you are a regular or a visitor getting onto their message stream is a great idea – find them here on Twitter or facebook.
