Since 2002, the Margaret River Farmers’ Market has been bringing the freshest seasonal produce directly from farmers and producers to the community. In 2018 it was awarded the Delicious Awards Most Outstanding Farmers’ Market in Australia.
Our market has real farmers selling seasonal farm fresh produce from the Margaret River Region (and just beyond) with artisan producers selling food they’ve made locally. Our stallholders must be personally hands on in the production of everything they sell – no reselling is allowed – which makes the Margaret River Farmers’ Market an authentic farmers’ market. Every Saturday morning, our community can access truly local, fresh and seasonal produce directly from the people who have grown or produced it.
Economically, farmers’ markets take out the middle man, so the farmers can charge less but make more; the consumer will pay less and be able to buy the best, ethically grown produce available. A farmers’ market connects hard working farmers to consumers, it connects consumers to their food source and the seasons, it creates a fantastic space and place for the community to connect every week, and it lowers food miles and strengthens the local economy. The Margaret River Farmers’ Market truly is a very special thing.
