Australia is now a net food importer, so what are you eating, where is it from, is it safe, and where is your hard earned money ending up?

Australian produce is the best in the world, so why in the hell would we allow substandard imported rubbish to replace what we do best?

Over 35% of all producers surveyed this year believe they are facing closure, and every time we lose an Australian farmer or producer, we are forced to import substandard product to replace the loss.

What this means to you, is less jobs, less food safety, and the loss of our National security.

If we become reliant on imported food, what will happen if the nations supplying us change their minds?

Imported food comes here in cold storage, the quality is below average and the countries from which it comes do not have the safe guards we have in place here in Australia.

Genetically modified, dangerous toxins and insecticides, the risk of importing disease that could further destroy our home grown product, are not acceptable.

The only way to fix this problem is for “we the people” to simply get it done.

Farm Direct is your market, it is not a corporate entity with profits in mind it is all about we as Australians working together to ensure our children’s fresh food future.


"Farm direct markets provide top class produce at farmers markets prices in locations where

YOU shop, are set up to support local producers and the community"

Please remain aware that "Farm Direct" goes against the grain of our present corporate ideals, so we will face opposition in coming months, so the more you help us grow, the easier it will be to succeed.

In time of political mediocracy, it is up to we the people to lead by example


“The first rallies to tackle the big duopoly were a success and the on-line social networks saw the ideal grow to over 20,000 invitees and several thousand backing the boycott of Coles and Woolworths until the people could see change in the way they both treated our local farmers and growers, and improved labelling to ensure consumers could also back Australian produce”, says Mark Aldridge the event organiser.

While the boycott continues it became apparent we needed to step in as a community and support the producers themselves, until the many issues facing our nations food bowl were addressed.

The big Duopoly riding roughshod over our family farms, using unethical methods to drive them to the wall, the importation of inferior produce, unfair if not dodgy labelling and the lack of will of our supposed representatives to protect our nation’s food bowl, is one of the most important issues facing this country’s future.

If you are buying produce picked the morning you buy it, at the lowest prices in the state, you are at a "Farm Direct" Market

The governments ineffective measures in protecting our farms themselves to foreign takeover, has made this country a laughing stock, and the people are now more than ever, very aware of the situation, which ensured the event I help on the 25 of August “The Fresh Food awareness rally” a huge success with thousands attending in support. I was gob-smacked that many producers who were booked to sell their produce on the day, endured adverse pressure to stay home, the very self interest the rally was all about exposing, luckily for the event, many producers stayed true and were rewarded with selling out all their produce.

“When hard-working local farmers and producers live in fear of the corporate giants in the grocery industry it becomes every Australians job to stand up in their support” Mark said, and furthermore “The government should hang their heads in shame, for letting it get to this stage!”

The huge success of my “Awareness Rally” has enabled me to work with all the right people, to solve this dilemma for our producers in a timely manner, the outcome being “Farm Direct” community markets all over the state, where the Farmers and growers come direct to the people, in locations and at times that suit family shopping.

The effect will be security for growers to sell their produce, easy access to the best fresh produce at huge savings for the local community, at a time when the hip pocket is being hammered by government incompetence and corporate greed, Mark went on to say.

The first and most massive of these “Farm Direct” markets will start Saturday the 15 in Enfield at 445 main north road from 9.00am, (closed by local council) other locations include Gawler (Gawler park 485 main north road Evanston), the Barossa, Hindmarsh, Salisbury, Arndale and Newton (closed by council), with the hope of further expansion all over the state and indeed the country. This event will also be sponsored and supported by various local business people, shopping centre owners, local government, social networking campaigners, The WHOot and many of my personal supporters.

These new markets will be held every week, on different days and times to suit the local communities needs, and to allow for a rotation of local producers, all produce will be South Australian where possible and only Australian made or grown produce will be welcomed.

I sincerely hope all Australians get behind this idea, and in particular our friends in the media, for while those we employ to represent us, have lost the will to do the right thing by hard working small business, it is indeed up to the rest of us to lead by example.

WHY PROMOTE FARM DIRECT? Over recent years there has been a sharp decline in family run farms, with grim predictions their demise in as little as 5 years from now. A variety of issues have brought this about, lack of foresight in water infrastructure, inept government intervention through the NRM, the ideal of free trade, market manipulation by the grocery giants, inferior imported produce, product labelling issues and the usual self interest of big money. The market leaders dominance in the Grocery industry enable them to make unfair demands and contracts with the family farmers and growers, with many now reliant on driving all over the state to similar markets just to make ends meet.

WHAT ARE THE ISSUES FACING “FARM DIRECT”? Excessive local government red tape, in fact approvals are still being debated with even the Enfield council, who are still trying to close the first of the markets. Threats, intimidation and complaints from the big retailers, the use of their market dominance to ride rough shod over smaller producers, and using their billion dollars profits, political & media connections to maintain their huge slice of the grocery market.

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT & HELP MAINTAIN AUSTRALIAN FRESH PRODUCE? If any “Farm direct” Markets are closed down, pressure your local council and your local MP for support, seek out other local markets and do the best you can to buy direct, always read labels to ensure what you buy is Australian made, oppose the sale of our prime land to foreign countries, email your council and ask for a “Farm direct Market” in your area. Coles and Woolworths have up to 87% of the market, so share your money with the smaller grocery stores and local fresh producers where ever possible, because we all know what will happen once the big two have total market dominance. Changing the direction of our fresh food future in favour of farmers, growers and consumers, will take will, the will of the people, so don’t just enjoy, share the ideals with friends and family and join in the fight for our

WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF “FARM DIRECT”? Farm direct is, fresher produce (no long term stored or imported produce) it is healthier, tastier and much easier on the household budget, because there is no middle man. It creates jobs in Australia, improves our income as a nation, and ensures our nation’s food security by protecting and encouraging investment in the primary production industry.
