    Lovely pic of our Harvest Feast cherry cones! We’re at Salamanca Market, Hobart Tasmania 8am to 3pm every Saturday.

  • THANK YOU for listing our farmers’ market in Australia’s 10 Best!

    For a tiny village of 300 residents it is a great achievement to be placed alongside the likes of Adelaide Farmers’ Market, Farmgate Market Hobart and the Barossa Farmers’ Market! What our tiny town lacks in population we more than make up for in a love of local food, passionate producers, supportive customers, dedicated volunteers (both past and present) and community spirit!

    A big THANK YOU to our stall holders, volunteers, customers and community that come together to make our market one of the BEST and thank you to Australian Traveller for the recognition!

    Great list! We’ll be adding these to our directory right away! So many great markets and wonderful food producers in this country and write-ups like this give them the recognition they deserve!

    Mullumbimby Farmers Market on the lush far nth coast of NSW is laid back, a bit hippie, with music, sushi, wood fired pizza and cane juice, whilst sitting under shady trees. Bliss x

    Tucked away in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane in Brookfield this genuine Farmers Market run by volunteers, uses its profits to feed the homeless and support Agricultural Science students in their honors year at the University of Queensland.

    Research into farming practices are essential, and this year prize money went to research into building stress tolerant soybeans in a climatically changing world; sustainable animal food identifying an effective strain of micro – algae to grow as stock feed, and learning to present research results to bio-science experts.

    We make our profits benefit the future. Not just another Farmers Market

  • Margaret River Farmers Market is held every Saturday 8-12 (between Dec-March 7.30 – 11.30am) all year round.
    NOT Sundays….

    I love the Northey St Organic Markets in Brisbane- bigger, fresher and in a much more beautiful setting than any other organic market. Delicious food and not much more expensive than conventional.

    The Farmers Market in Hobart 1997 was so enjoyable. I brought home a little packet of lime leaves to cook with. My host in Tasmania sold beautiful hosta plants at the Saturday market, as well as other well-grown plants. One of my “treasures” is some old Australian coins. At 93, I won’t be going again, but have so many vivid memories of a splendid land and people.
