Every weekend at accredited farmers' markets across Victoria, our staff catch up with our farmers and producers to find out what's fresh and seasonal. We also check in with managers for updates on how they're managing their commitment to accreditation in their local context.

Our accreditation program sits at the heart of our promise that when you come to an accredited farmers' market, you are dealing directly with genuine Victorian farmers, strengthening the viability of local producers, and jointly defending our food sovereignty.   See you at a market this weekend!

Visit the Gasworks Arts Park Farmers Market to stock up on winter produce in the open air.  Snack on hot roasted chestnuts from Catkin Grove Chestnuts, and pick up lasagna from Take Me Home Pasta for home-baked warmth.  Stop by market stalwarts Green Eggs for a dozen fresh eggs and check out newcomers Botanical Brew for their range of delicious fermented sparkling drinks.  The park has an off-leash area for dogs and Naturedog are on hand with healthy pet treats as needed.  The Gasworks Resident Artist Studios are also open during the Farmers’ Market and visitors are welcome.
