A NEW farmers' market in Albury will shine a light on regenerative farming.
The RegenerEAT Farmers Market will showcase Border and North East producers who are passionate about the way they farm as much as what they farm.
The first monthly market will run on Sunday morning outside Cafe Musette, opposite Albury Railway Station.
Wolki Farm co-owner and market organiser Jacob Wolki said he wanted to launch the market to connect regenerative farmers with conscious consumers.
"Farmers' markets are a powerful outlet to bring the community together to purchase produce directly from farmers and to help smaller farmers get a bigger share of the spending dollar," he said.
"All of the people coming along have a similar ethos; they're all conscious consumers and they'll be an asset to the market."

Mr Wolki said people wanted to know about food origins and ethical farming.
"People are absolutely more curious than ever before," Mr Wolki said.
"I've been running farm tours every second Sunday for six months and last Sunday we had 30 people come along and they stayed five-and-a-half hours. It was advertised as a two-hour tour."
Mr Wolki said the first farmers' market would represent 13 producers but he was keen to expand it.
He said producers who farmed within the region and wanted to offer their own produce were welcome to contact him.
Among the stallholders on Sunday will be Wolki Farm, Rutherglen Berkshire, Sanctuary Farmstead, Eaglerise Farm, Tanybryn Farm, Nutty Food Co, The Happy Hens Eggs, Almar Organics, Bicycle Baker, Jolly Berries, The Brothers Cup, Binderee Farm and Mattia Ringe.
RegenerEAT Farmers Markets will run on the first Sunday of the month from 8am to noon.
