In the wee hours they load and come to you
Our stallholders are hard working Victorian farmers and producers who make the trek to Melbourne each week – whatever the weather – to sell their produce direct to you!
For most this isn’t a hobby or social outing, it's their livelihood and farmers’ markets have become their primary source of income.
Even those who travel some distance to attend the markets, are doing it because it makes their business viable and, importantly, they’re doing it on their own terms.
FILL YOUR FRIDGE & PANTRY WITHOUT FOOD MILES
SEASONAL FRUIT & VEG
Including organics and heirloom varieties throughout the year and seasonal specialties like asparagus and cherries in spring, garlic and berries in summer, apples and nuts in autumn, citrus and potatoes in winter.
FREE RANGE MEATS
Organic, free range and rare breed meats include beef, lamb, mutton, chooks, turkeys, venison, barramundi, salmon, pork and goat.
The unique opportunity to ask the grower about cooking tips, production methods and animals' welfare.
Think handmade cheeses including goat, sheep and cows milk as well as freshly bottled milk, cream, yoghurt and ice-cream in summer and autumn.
You’ve heard lots of talk about the plight of dairy farmers so come and hear the facts from them direct.
Fresh bread is a staple and several farmers also transform their produce into tasty baked goods like rhubarb fruit cakes, fruit/meat pies and tarts, kids snacks and hot food ready to go.
Olive and seed oils, preserves, antipasto, honey, jams, sauces, chutneys, dried fruit, mayonnaise and the likes…
CUT FLOWERS & EDIBLE PLANTS
Whilst they usually aren’t edible, we will always have a selection of cut flowers at each market as well as herbs and seedling plants for those who are inspired to grow their own!
In a nutshell, you needn’t come with a list and you’ll always go home with plenty!
