Brooms Head photographer Stephen Otton happened to be at the markets to snap these pictures before taking the opportunity to chat with the media personality.

"He was a friendly, funny, chatty person," Mr Otton said.

Mr Whitney was reportedly having an in-depth conversation with local artist and long-time friend Graham Mackie.

"Apparently these two had a lot in common in days gone by being cricket and surfing," Mr Otton said.

This is not the first time Mr Whitney has visited the Clarence Valley with his television crew. 

Back in 2016, Sydney Weekender featured Riverside Ranch and was given the factory tour at Nicholson's Fine Foods.

And, back in 2012 Whitney and the crew sampled the Valley's renowned seafood with Yamba Shores Tavern and the Clarence River Fisherman's Co-Operatives.
