Ballarat Farmers Market takes place in central Ballarat near the shores of beautiful Lake Wendouree. The market operates on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month – except in December when we run our usual market on the Second Saturday then a monster Twilight Christmas Market on a Friday before Christmas. Check website or FB for details.
The market has over 60 stalls featuring coffee van, hot food cooked on the spot, fresh vegetables, fruit, bread, olive oil, cheese, jams, chutneys and sauces, clothing, fudge, gifts, health bars, eggs, honey, wine, Cornish pasties, fresh ground coffee, yummy biscuits and hand-made jewellery. There will be craft, clothing and gift stalls, as well as a massive range of dry goods (flours, grains, pulses, dried fruit, herbs, herbal teas, nuts and much more) and plants, including natives, edibles and succulents. The COVID-safe operation is set in large parklands north of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens. Stroll under the dappled shade of mature trees as you enjoy the market before a visit to the lake or gardens.
Many stalls are seasonal local producers and the range is different at every market. There really is something for everyone.
