Capital Region Farmers Market

Capital Region Farmers Market

The Capital Region Farmers Market is held most Saturdays from 8am to 11am at Exhibition Park In Canberra (EPIC).

The Capital Region Farmers Market features a huge range of goods direct from regional growers and producers including fresh fruit, vegetables, coffee, horticultural supplies, meat, seafood and organic products.

The Capital Region Farmers Market was founded (and is managed) by the Rotary Club of Hall to:
-:- Provide customers with a diverse range of fresh farm and food produce straight from the producer to the consumer and an opportunity to discuss with growers and learn through weekly forays.
-:- Build local agri-business opportunities for regional producers to sell fresh farm and food produce.
-:- Provide a community dividend in the region - funds generated from the Market are fed back into regional communities and other projects chosen by the Rotary Club of Hall.

The Market provides an opportunity for Canberra and regional consumers to sample the regions produce. It is a community project run by the not-for-profit Rotary Club of Hall, the only rural Rotary Club in the ACT.

The Club has been delighted to do something positive to underpin the growing agri-business opportunities in the region, provide a direct and unbroken link between food producers and customers, offer a great seasonal food experience to ACT residents and support important regional community projects.

Planning for the Farmers Market commenced in late 2003, when a major analysis was undertaken to determine the dynamics of farmers markets. The first Capital Region Farmers Market was held in March 2004 and was established without any financial support or grants from governments or other sources. It started with 18 stalls and some 1,000 customers, and has since grown to more than 100 stalls per week and over 5,000 customers.

The Market offers a convenient alternative to a farm gate for some growers unable to secure on-farm sales or through retailers.

It is strictly farm/food product related. It does not permit art or craft stalls, clothing, general consumer items or imported products. The Market follows the fundamental but simple rules of authenticity, credibility and sustainability.

Breakfast food and fresh coffee available from stallholders at the market and the EPIC Cafe in the Kosciuiszko Pavilion.

Free admission.

Parking: EPIC Car Park for Farmers Markets - entry via Old Wells Station Road (off Northbourne Avenue or Morriset Road).
