The Margaret River Farmers Market is an award winning wonderful weekly event that showcases the Margaret River Region's farmers and food producers quality products. The farmers' market is held every Saturday morning all year round, rain, hail or shine. The farmers's market will give you a true taste of Margaret River in more ways than one.
As the seasons change, the fruit and vegetables available change. The farmers' market connects the local community to cooking and eating seasonally. The farmers' market reduces food miles as the fresh produce has not traveled very far for very long. The farm produce is often harvested 24-48 hours of being available to you on the Saturday morning. It's incredibly nutritious and fresh!
Margaret River Farmers’ Market has real farmers predominantly from the Margaret River Region (and just beyond, a specific appellation within the southwest) selling seasonal fresh farm produce and artisan food producers selling food they’ve produced, directly to consumers. Our stallholders must be personally hands on in the production of the food they sell at the market; no reselling is allowed. There is no craft available, only fresh food and cut flowers. The Margaret River Farmers’ Market an authentic farmers’ market, our community and visitors have access truly local, fresh and seasonal food directly from the people who have grown or produced the food; every Saturday morning.
Our meat, dairy and egg farmers raise their animals ethically and sustainably, their animals lead happy and healthy lives. Ethical, sustainable farming practices bring a variety of benefits, firstly there is less of an environmental footprint on our planet and secondly it ensures the meat, dairy and eggs they produce is of excellent quality. You can literally taste the difference.
Economically, farmers’ markets take out the middle man, the farmers can charge less but make more; the consumer will pay less and be able to buy the best, freshest and ethically grown produce available. All our farmers are based within the Margaret River Region or a short distance beyond; are small family owned and operated farms and food businesses, therefore money spent in their stall will more likely remain in the local and southwest economy.
Margaret River Farmers’ Market connects hard working farmers to consumers, it connects consumers to their food source and the seasons; it allows a fantastic space and place for the community to connect every week.
