Spring has sprung and there will be loads of new season produce to discover this Saturday. It’s asparagus season, so make sure you find Jonella Farm and Bridge Farm organics for your fix of this very local signature ingredient. Did you know that 93% of Australia’s asparagus comes from Koo Wee Rup and Dalmore, just an hour west of Melbourne in Gippsland? You can’t get much fresher than that when it comes straight from the grower to you!

The park itself hasn’t recovered from the rain and surface damage over winter so we will be using Plan B again along the pathways and into the leafy Glade on the corner of Graham and Foote Streets. So we’ll see you on Saturday for a wonderful day’s shopping and supporting Victorian farmers.

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. 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.
