Welcome to Eynesbury Farmers Market

Our Farmers Market

Buying local foods is a simple way to improve your health, your community, and the environment all at the same time!

Eynesbury Farmers Market supports family-based farming, farmers and food producers of Victoria.  Cutting out the middleman allows direct contact and feedback between customers and producers, allowing area residents the opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge about how their vegetables are grown and their meat is produced. Cutting out the middleman not only helps the local community but reduces food packaging and food miles, thus reducing vehicle pollution, noise and fossil fuel use.

 

Cooking Demonstrations

Our cooking demonstrations are not scheduled for the next 4 weeks while we are temporarily relocated to front of the homestead. 

Come along and enjoy our demonstrations as our chef's and stalllholders offer, educate and inspire healthy food options using seasonal produce that has been sourced directly from the market.

Operating Times

Our market runs in all weathers

9.00am - 1.00pm 

Our advertised hours were until 2.30pm, however, we have found that after around 1pm there are few people visiting the market.  Our stallholders stay until 1pm and if customers are still coming in we stay open and often don't start packing up until just before 1.30pm.

If there are no customers left or we have sold out of produce we close.  We also have to take into account that we have very limited shade and quite a lot of our stall holders produce is on ice. This has a limited shelf life and with health regulations there is a particular length of time we can allow fresh produce to be available without refrigeration.  We want our produce to be provided to our customers at it's best and freshest.

Information

Eynesbury Farmers Market is the inspiration of people that love the ability to create a place that genuine farmers and producers can meet and sell directly to the public fresh, local and organic foods. The produce sold is locally grown, fresh, and is usually cheaper than in supermarkets. The aim is to increase local food supply, stimulate local economies, and create opportunities for small scale enterprises. 

All kinds of people attend the market, though market surveys reveal that crowds tend to be those over 50 years, with more disposable income and a greater interest in organic produce.

The market will be promoted by signs on the highway one week before the event, and advertised in local community newsletters and publications.

Eynesbury Farmers Market happens every Sunday  (9.30am – 2pm) at the Eynesbury Homestead.   More
