April Market 2017

THIS MONTH...

Join us on Saturday 1 April (April Fool’s Day!) and pick up farm-fresh bits and pieces for your Easter feast! New this month, 1 Fish 2 Fish will join us with fresh, Victorian-farmed fish! We’ll also have organic garlic, olive oil, free-range meats, vegan treats, fresh baked pastries, native seedlings and loads more.

Snack on ready-to-eat authentic Indian food, pick up composting tips from the Landcare Network stall, and stop by the YMCA area for family fun! While you’re enjoying all our Market has to offer, listen to the “powerfully haunting’” tunes of The Voice Australia star, Imogen Brough.

In this edition >> find out which stallholders will join us this April and learn about our wonderful stallholder, Basalt Plains Produce. We also have a honey special this month. Did you know there’s a lot of fake honey passing as the real thing in supermarkets? Scroll down to learn how to spot fake honey...


We look forward to seeing you at the next Market!
