As we begin 2022, the cycle of Victoria's weekly and monthly accredited farmers' markets begins anew. We want to start the year with a shout-out to our market managers, volunteers and helpers: thanks for your commitment and for the amazing work you do!

A lot happens behind the scenes to get markets organised, set up and buzzing each market day. Managers are busy liaising with stallholders, volunteers, local governments and the public, planning the layout, filling gaps, cajoling, placating and doing their best to keep everyone satisfied.

Volunteers - sometimes Rotary or other service clubs and community groups - are often the hi-vis helpers who reliably turn up early, set up, man and run the sausage sizzle and get everything tidy and packed away at the end of the market.

As we start the new year, enjoy the abundance of summer! And don't forget to thank the helpers and managers who make it happen. (Tip: they're often in a yellow, hi-vis vest!)
