Brightly coloured, ripe and delicious fruit and vegetables, aromatic hand-made cakes and jams, freshly laid free range eggs and just cut flowers are only a few of the sumptuous goods you’ll find at our monthly Gasworks Farmers Markets. You will love spending Saturday mornings on the grass soaking up the vibrant atmosphere and sampling the very best of local Victorian produce. You can even enjoy a hot snag at the gourmet BBQ before you start!
Gasworks Farmers Market has received the Outstanding Farmers Market Award at the 2012 delicious. Produce Awards! Read more…
Next Farmers’ Market Date: Saturday 15 March from 8am to 1pm – rain, hail or shine!The Farmers Market Philosophy
Farmers’ markets reflect the true seasons of local fresh food and reconnect the two ends of the food chain; producer meets consumer direct. Stallholders have a simple philosophy; that their goods are grown, made and known by those who sell them and that the quality of produce is of the utmost importance. From across Victoria, around 70 stallholders bring you a slice of rural life and create a unique and very personal shopping expedition.
The market is plastic bag free and all packaging is as environmental responsible as possible so bring your own trolleys or baskets and re-use your own bags.
