Farmers markets in NSW
In bustling farmers and growers markets across NSW you can buy a scrumptious range of fresh seasonal produce and handcrafted delights, such as cheeses, olive oils, breads, and preserves. You’ll meet farmers and growers, learn how produce is grown, and gain tips on how to prepare the food.
From the far South Coast to the far North Coast, from the bountiful landscapes in Country NSW to the spectacular Blue Mountains and the vineyards of the Hunter, you’ll find markets with a wide variety of stalls and produce. You can even buy bush honey from beekeepers at some markets.
In the wine regions are produce markets such as the Mudgee Fine Foods Farmers Market in Mudgee and the Riverina Producers Market in Wagga Wagga. The Young and Region Farmers Market is in the Hilltops wine region, and the Armidale Farmers Market is in the New England wine region.
Australia’s oldest wine region is the Hunter Valley and you can browse fresh delights from local farmers and producers at the Slow Food Earth Market in Maitland. Farther north in the Hunter, near the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Barrington Tops rainforest, is the Gloucester Farmers Market.
You can combine a trip to the spectacular Jenolan Caves in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains with a visit to Oberon for the Tablelands Way Oberon Farmers Market. This monthly Saturday market is in the grounds of St Barnabas Church. The drive from Oberon to the caves is half an hour.
