The forecast is lovely and the scene is set for a sunny Winter farmers market at Gasworks this Saturday 16 August.

Features of the season are blood oranges and limes, kiwi fruit, kale, walnuts, globe artichokes and the last sightings of Gippsland black truffles for the year. Rug up and enjoy the huge variety of local produce from over 60 Victorian farmers and food makers.

And if you enjoy shopping locally at farmers markets, put Saturday 6 September in your diary and get in the neighbourhood circuit joining us at Southbank farmers market just up the road at the Boyd Community Hub.

Gasworks Farmers Market has received the Outstanding Farmers Market Award at the 2012 delicious. Produce Awards!

Next Farmers’ Market Date: Saturday 20 September from 8.30am 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.
