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. There is a simple philosophy at the market; that the 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, 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.
