Farmers Markets To Visit This Month

Lisa Brooke at Bondi Farmers Market

Growers markets are a great way to support your local community, buy sustainably grown fruit and veg and, most importantly, score some sweet egg and bacon rolls. Plus, they’re also quite family friendly and only slightly dominated by hipsters on the hunt for purple kale. At these weekly markets you’ll find everything from organic fruit and vegetables, meat, seafood, preserves and marmalades, bread, skincare products and even a few artisan crafts. 

Ramsgate Organic Foodies Market

Touted as southern Sydney’s first and only certified organic food market, the stalls at Ramsgate Public School features more than 40 NSW growers and producers all peddling their ethical and locally grown range. Of particular note are the cronuts done by Sydney pastry maker Walter Becker—one of the few chefs doing their own version of Dominique Ansel’s ever-popular hybrid treat.  
Held every Saturday from 8am - 12 noon.

Concord Farmers Market

Located within Cintra Park car park (near Concord High School), this fortnightly market is where NSW farmers, producers and wine makers can be found. Look for the marinated feta from Little Creek Cheeses or pick up a jar of smoked sea salt from The Original Smoke & Spice Company. There’s also plenty of breads and cakes and some of Sydney’s tastiest bagels at this Sydney’s farmers market. 
Held on the first and third Sunday of every month from 9am - 1pm.

Eveleigh Farmers Market

Arguably one of Sydney’s trendiest fresh food markets held each Saturday at the Carriageworks site, Eveleigh boasts more than 70 regular stallholders all bustling for attention at the ‘peoples supermarket.’ Stalls feature the usual line up of fresh goodies, plus some rather delicious pork buns served up by none other than Kylie Kwong herself. It’s been named amongst the top 100 produce markets in the world by Monocle Magazine, and yet the whole place has managed to retain a very local feel. 
Held every Saturday from 8am - 12 noon.

Orange Grove Market

Each Saturday morning Orange Grove Public School plays host to a range of gourmet food, fashion, plants, flowers, kids entertainment and sustainable fair trade homewares. Kids love the pony rides and there’s a range of up cycled jewellery to tempt the adults. 
Held every Saturday from 7am - 1pm.

Bondi Farmers Market

It might seem like an episode from Bondi Hipsters, but this Saturday market, held in Bondi Beach Public School, is all about the freshest and most local produce (many of the stallholders hail from within the area and run small-scale operations like Bondi Yoghurt and Bondi Biltong). There’s also a range of vegetarian bites, chemical-free cleaning products, essential oil stalls and even free bicycle tune-ups.  
Held every Saturday from 9am - 1pm.
