Josh&Sue arrived at the Handmade Market for the first time in December and wowed the crowds with their delicious chutneys, sauces and smiles. We’re very pleased to be welcoming them back to Handmade on 18 & 19 March and recently asked them a few of our Handmade questions.

Why do you love the Handmade Market?
December 2016 was our first introduction to Handmade Canberra and we had the best time. It was well run, the stall holders were great to chat to and the consumers were all very well educated about gourmet food and were very engaged with us, wanting to sample and purchase our range. We are very much looking forward to March.
What are you looking forward to most about your trip to Canberra?
Josh had a ball in Canberra last time, sampling all the delicious food. We are looking forward to seeing some of our loyal local customers, chatting with stall holders, the Handmade team and engaging with the lovely people of Canberra. December was the first time to Canberra and we met so many new faces. We aren’t looking forward to the drive home on Sunday night, but that is just par for the course.
Can you describe your place of work?
We create our condiments in beautiful Daylesford in the heart of a spa town, such a beautiful location with an abundance of local produce.
