Announcing… The Bream Creek Farmers Market Cookbook!


Dear BCFM Friends,

The Bream Creek Farmers Market Committee have a very special project waiting in the wings and we are so excited to finally unveil it to our faithful friends and fans…

This year, we will be producing a hard cover, full colour cook book – professionally produced and made up of recipes from our wonderful BCFM stallholders.

Recipe development and photography has already begun – Alice Bennett, photographer of the best-selling book Country Houses of Tasmania, is producing all images.  Eloise Emmett, local chef and owner of Mussel Boys is food editor and recipe developer.  Katharine Burke from Marion Bay Organics is writing additional text and styling photographs.  Ian Wallace, award winning photographer and book designer is producing the cook book.

As well as beautiful recipes, The Bream Creek Farmers Market Cookbook will also feature practical gardening tips and information on eating both seasonally and sustainably, as well as images of the Market and our stunning local Tasman Peninsula region,.

All production costs for the book will be raised through sponsorship from local businesses and money raised from the book will go towards ensuring the future of the Market itself.  In addition, 5% of all profits will be donated to the Dunalley Primary School Parents and Friends Committee to support the next generation of bakers, makers and growers.

At present, we have a limited number of Sponsorship Packages available for stallholders and other local businesses.  This package includes a full page advertisement in the book promoting your product or business, professionally photographed by Alice Bennet, as well as a photographed recipe.  In addition all sponsors will receive a box of books which can be sold at our recommended retail price of $40 per copy or given as a promotional gift as well as other benefits.  There is also a special sponsorship opportunity available for our BCFM stallholders.

Sponsorship packages are limited and are already being snapped fast up by local businesses. If you would like to join us as a sponsor and support your local community, please click on the BCFM Cookbook Sponsorship tab at the top of this page.  Alternatively we can post a sponsorship package – please contact us at

If you are a stallholder and would like to submit a recipe, then be quick!  We are photographing recipes this month and would love to hear from you.  Email us at for more info.

The photographs above are a sneak peek of what is to come – recipes below have been cooked, styled and photographed by our professional production team who are focussed on showcasing local produce in the best possible light.  We think they are fantastic and just a small taste of what is yet to come!
