Woodend Community Farmer’s Market
Woodend Community Farmer’s Market, run by MRSG is an accredited farmer’s market: first Saturday of every month. A great market which is part of the network of Macedon Ranges Farmer’s Markets: there is one each week of the month.
HOME PRODUCE EXCHANGE Information for September 2013 – This month the Home Produce Exchange was held on the same day as the Farmer’s Market but at the Permaculture Garden where swappers could also attend the Spring Sessions which was a great success with many people attending. HPE will be back next to the MRSG stall at the October Farmers Market: Saturday 5 October.
Thanks to Helen for organizing the home produce exchange and thanks to all the exchangers for bringing their produce, compost, recipes, eggs, advice, egg cartons, plants, books and anything they can think of for a terrific exchange. Everyone can contribute so please come along.
The Macedon Ranges now hosts a farmers market every Saturday of the month:
1st Saturday – Woodend (cnr High & Forest St, 9am-1pm)
2nd Saturday – Kyneton (St Pauls Park, Piper St, 8am-1pm)
3rd Saturday – Riddells Creek (Main Rd, 9am-1pm)
4th Saturday – Lancefield (High St, 9am-1:30pm)
The production and sale of food locally has many benefits, ensuring agricultural land remains productive, providing income for local producers, reducing food miles and providing a source of non- and low processed food options in an educative and convivial rural atmosphere.
The first Woodend Community Farmers Market was held on the 3rd of December 2011 and will continue on the 1st weekend of the month thereafter to enable weekly farmers market selling and shopping for those looking to support the cause of food localisation.
We would like to acknowledge Café Colenso (www.colenso.com.au) as well as staff, suppliers and customers for their fundraising dinner and the Woodend Lions Club for their generous donation to get the Woodend Farmers Market started.
