This year is the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables, so help us to celebrate our market gardening past. Campbelltown was once world-famous for its large, white celery and the mayoral chain still has a man carrying celery as its central feature. In the 1920s, market gardeners in Paradise developed a new technique for growing celery, only known by a select few. ‘Celery Sue’ became the mascot of the South Australian celery industry in the 1950s and local harvests continued into the early 1990s. Look back at the surprising and quirky history of celery – when celery was king! Bookings essential.
