Other market news and information
Do you have a copy of our wallet guide to seasonal produce in our region? Free copies are available each week at the market stall and the coffee cart (both are in the courtyard).
Market signs are green for produce grown or processed by the stallholder and white if the stallholder is an agent for another grower or producer. If in doubt, ask the stallholder.
The market is a proud supporter of our local community, so you might also see OzHarvest, Woden SEE-Change, the Canberra Valley Lions Club, local church groups, or some of our local musicians.
