For the past three years, the Gap Farmers's Market has been providing wholesome, local produce to the people of the Gap and its surrounding suburbs. It has also entertained the community with live music performances, family-friendly activities and its beautiful variety of hand-crafted items to peruse. We chatted to Andrew Ross to find out more.
