The Farmer's Market shows no signs of slowing down or stopping, with trading continuing and local producers making the most of the current, difficult situation.
The Dubbo Farmer's Market, and similar events across the nation, were given the all clear from the Department of Health to continue hosting events after a number of wide-ranging crackdowns on public gatherings were announced by the federal government.
The scenario is an unexpected windfall for local growers and producers, who're now able to capitalise after an initial period of confusion.
The effects are being felt by Troy Bourke, who operates Neurea Valley Produce on the other side of Wellington, and frequently travels to Farmer's Markets to sell his fruit and vegetables.
"The market prior to this one was like any other, pretty normal in terms of markets, really," Mr Bourke said.
"But the one that just went by on the weekend, there were a lot of people and they were there a lot earlier, I think there might have been some worry about how busy it was going to be."
"It was a great market for us in that sense, we sold out very early on Saturday."
Among the many reasons Mr Bourke singles out as possible motivators for the increased attention on fresh, local produce is a shift to healthier foods with the COVID-19 dominating the news.
"Right now, I think spuds were a really big thing because they can be stored, but we also saw a lot of people after caulifllowers at the moment, I was told by a customer that it's meant to be the new health food people are recommending," Mr Bourke said.
"I think it's a bit of an opportunity for us all with the markets staying open, with the epidemic at the moment, there's definitely a broader interest from people in eating healthier and going after that fresh produce."
With many people likely to be stuck at home for the foreseeable future, Mr Bourke said he also hoped to see people become re-invested in procuring and cooking fresh, local produce.
"Things do take time and obviously people are going to have a bit more time at home, there's been a bit of laziness around cooking habits I think and now people are going to be looking at doing it properly again," Mr Bourke said.
Another area that's opening up for self-isolated residents is the chance to cultivate some produce of their own, a mvoe that Mr Bourke says is a great idea for those stuck at home.
"I've always told customers it's always nice to produce your own product, it's great to have your own little backyard garden," Mr Bourke said.
"It broadens people's mind and gives them a sense of satisfaction as well as the better taste you get."
