Fabulous fresh ingredients make the Huon Valley a foodie paradise, but this isn't always evident on menus around mainstream, rudimentary Huonville. Still, there are a few good cafes around here, plus an excellent bakery and a classy winery restaurant.
All along the Huon Valley roadsides, particularly the B68 between Huonville and Cygnet, you can pull over and buy farm-fresh produce from makeshift (or sometimes sophisticated, illuminated and refrigerated) roadside apple stalls. These usually take the form of tin sheds out the front of farms, stocked with bags of whatever is in season: pears, apricots, peaches, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, boysenberries, strawberries, potatoes, peas, beans and, of course, apples. It’s an honesty system – grab your bag, drop some coins in the box and drive off brimming with vitamin C.
