These past few months in lockdown have been strange. But being at home has at least given us time to make the perfect spag bol. If you’re like us and want to keep challenging your inner Nigella, you’ll need the best ingredients to make your dishes pop. To help you along, we’ve pulled together the top six spots to visit in Hobart when you want up your cooking. 

1. Farm Gate Market for fresh produce

This is the place to go if you want to grab fresh produce right from the source. Head down to Hobart’s Bathurst Street any Sunday morning to pick up some fresh, seasonal and delicious fruit and veggies. The best part is you’re buying directly supporting our Tassie farmers.
