Eat your heart out with Melbourne Farmer’s Markets.
Farmer’s Markets are rapidly popping up across Melbourne and regional Victoria to ensure you can regularly get farm fresh produce direct from the farmers. They are a fun family friendly day out where one can do some quick grocery shopping, catch up with friends or grab the essentials- much needed coffee and breakfast. Farmer’s markets not only bring you an array of great fresh fruit and vegetable produce but home made and local sweets, amazing savoury foods and even an array of household cleaning, and health items. They are slowly becoming a one stop shop on your weekend where you can grab everything you need to get through the working week.
Shop Local, Support Local is an ethos we try to practice and promote at Crisp, supporting local businesses producing Australian owned and Australian made products where we can. We recently ventured into our own test garden, growing and providing seasonal produce in our stores to supplement the existing menu. Supporting local farmers is extremely important in order to keep our farm industry afloat.
So, how about supporting some local farmers this week, and steering away from shopping at huge supermarket conglomerates? You will not only be benefiting the farmers, but your wallet and taste buds will thank you for it to. And, we guarantee there is a farmers market near you. Check out the list below of our favourites.
For a more extensive list visit the Victorian Farmers Market Association for a list of every accredited market, and their specific market days. Remember some markets run weekly, bi-monthly or monthly, so make sure to check your dates and circle them in your calendar.
