6 Farmers Markets To Visit In Australia

Share


If you’re wondering what to do on a day out on your camper holiday, we’d suggest stopping by a local farmers market.

All over Australia, farmers markets sell a range of conventional and organic produce straight from the farmer to you. Not only do they support local communities but they’re a wonderful opportunity to learn about your food an­­d the people that produce it. There’s fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs and meats, olive oils, nuts, honey, wines, biscuits, jams, chutneys, spice mixes, pates, confectioneries, breads, pasta, artisan cheeses, seedlings and flowers and so much more. Many of the fresh items would have been picked that morning so you are guaranteed that they’ll smell and taste amazing and the grower may even have a story or favourite recipe to share.

So delight in the snap of a bean, the taste of a juicy peach and revel in the aroma of sizzling bacon as you enjoy your organic latte. Remember most markets are plastic bag free, so you’ll need to bring your own basket, bags or trolley. Here's our top 6 to visit next time you're travelling in Australia.

VIC - South Melbourne Market

Still rightly famous for its homemade dim sims, the South Melbourne Market was dealing out wonderful fresh produce before the word “foodie” existed and now has certified icon status. Oh and one more thing. If you even get close to the huge paella dish simmering at the front it won’t matter that you’ve already had breakfast.

NSW - Carriageworks

Carriageworks is not so much a market you visit, as an entity you immerse yourself in. Set in the 19th Century railway workshops building it fuses heritage with a vibrant post modern aesthetic and delivers a total food experience including tastings and cooking classes.

QLD - Noosa Farmers Market

The Noosa Farmers Market happens every Sunday under the gum trees of the Noosa Football Club. The atmosphere is buzzing, the local produce is amazing and the bush backdrop is beautiful. Foodies in a footy club? If there’s a better expression of modern Australia than that we can’t think of one - at least not right now.

SA - Willunga Farmers Market

Even in the fast evolving world of food trends there’s no doubt that South Australia more than holds its own - and when you go there you realise why. The Willunga Famers Market is an A1 example of this. Set at the door of the renowned McLaren Vale wine region this whole area creates its own self sustaining food and art vortex all of which is why this market is rated by many as the “best in Australia.”

WA - Growers Green Farmers Market

Because the slightly boho seaside atmosphere of Fremantle is seductive enough in itself and having one of Australia’s best farmers markets is just the icing on that cake, we can confidently give a “big tick” to this as a wonderful morning out. As well as being a melting pot of all that is good and wonderful about Western Australia's farm produce, this location also boasts the monthly Big Market where you can pick up vintage, handmade and pre-loved clothes, jewellery, crafts and accessories.

TAS - Hobart Farmers Market

Because it is so small and so beautiful, so clean and so right on the water, Hobart is like a pin up of what every coastal capital city would secretly love to look like. This unique location sets the tone for the Farm Gate Market, which showcases the prodigious quality and diversity of Tasmanian food and has reached the status of a local and beyond local institution.
