Farm Gate Market Reviews
It would have been better if not that busy. Seems like due to Dark Mofo, it was busier that usual. Very crowded, although it was good to see local producers and unique products. more »
Browse the many stalls providing locally produced food & drink. Great doughnuts & tasty treats. Fruit & veg fresh & prices reasonable. more »
Great fresh produce and stalls selling an assortment of other products. Really enjoy going for a light meal here with a cup of coffee. Just remember that this market isn't dog friendly and parking starts at 9am. The parking attendants will be on the hunt to fine you if you go over your parking spots time allowance. Happy shopping.
You have to visit this market, its the best. I go to purchase specific food but I also take in the other stalls at what is like a carnival atmosphere. By the way, the best dairy is there, Elgaar Farm. Do yourself a favor and induldge in some organic dairy. Its good for you!
