Fellas, Kirrily Sinclair wants to tempt you with a juicy bacon and egg roll, some cool tunes and a comfy place to park your behind of a Sunday.

The farmers' market probably isn't your usual hangout, but Mrs Sinclair is hoping her new venture - the Foragers Markets - will change all of that.

As of July 13, Sundays at the Bulli Showground will become a melting pot of delicious offerings, fresh produce, live music, kids activities and, once a month, artisan products.

Mrs Sinclair, who started working on the concept a year ago, hopes it will be a place where people can kick back with a newspaper in the recycled furniture "chill-out zone", or grab a coffee and meet up with friends.

"I just hope that it becomes a hub, so we can really make that connection as a community," the Thirroul mum said.

"I used to live in Byron Bay and we definitely had that up there. The weekly farmers' markets was an institution for us, but it wasn't just about buying food it was about meeting everyone, bumping into people, having a coffee and making a morning of it.

"The hot food is a good drawcard, particularly for men - I'm hoping an egg and bacon roll will get them here - because we want the markets to be a place for all of the family."

Thirroul outfit Leeroy's and Lily's will be cooking up the rolls in stalls alongside the champion yoghurt-makers from Picton's Country Valley Dairy, and the Camden jam-makers from Doolan Country Jams.

Meats and fresh produce will be available, including Palarang Organic Meat and Batlow Apple Shed Stone Fruits and Nuts.
