A good chef will tell you they are only as good as the produce they use, so it’s no surprise that many of our region’s best chefs are regulars at the market.
We are an authentic farmers’ market. Our produce is locally grown and incredibly fresh. Many of our farmers are up at 4am picking for that day’s market. Our farmers are passionate about what they do.
Fresh, ripe, seasonal produce means more flavour and more nutrients. If you’ve ever tasted vegies picked straight from the garden, you’ll know there really is a difference.
Our fresh produce comes from a mix of organic, biodynamic and traditional farmers. We have exotic and heirloom varieties you won’t find anywhere else. Fruit, vegetable and herbs in season, exotic fruits, meats and seafood, sourdough breads, honey, nuts, oils, flowers, bush food, biodynamic wheat and spelt flour, biodynamic rice, cow and goat milk, hand-made cheeses, free-range hen and duck eggs, coffee and tea.
We also have two seedling suppliers and at certain times of the year, live heritage- breed poultry.
Prepared food, take-home meals and artisan food products include tempeh, miso sauerkraut and other fermented foods and drinks, ghee, hand made pasta, pickles, spices, infused oils, vinegars, sauces, chutneys, cordials, chocolate coated and honey roasted macadamias, hemp foods, pestos, dips, quiches, tarts, cakes, and treats for the school lunchbox.
