Canberra Farmers’ Market, every Sunday morning
We will be closed Easter Sunday. The market will reopen Sunday 7th April.
Happy Easter to all our customers!
The Southside Farmers Market will remain at the Woden CIT
We are delighted to announce that the Southside Farmers Market will remain at the Woden CIT campus for the foreseeable future. Both the ACT Government/ Environment and Sustainable Development Department and the CIT management have been very supportive in granting an extension of the lease and the necessary exemptions for the premises to be used for the purpose of a farmers market. The market will therefore be able to operate without any change to the current location or set-up.
We would like to convey our gratitude to these organisations from ourselves as well as on behalf of growers and customers.
The market is open every Sunday morning from 8am - 11.30am, at the CIT Southside Campus, corner of Hindmarsh Drive and Ainsworth Street, Phillip. The closest parking is the ACT Health car park off Albermarle Place, or in the carparks at the front of the CIT.
Fresh, regional, seasonal produce
The Southside Farmers Market is a village market that provides all the fresh food that you need for your weekly shop. The market has a great range of fresh, seasonal produce from around 60 stallholders each week - including fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, honey, bread, gourmet treats and much more.
Amongst the wide range of food available, you will find organic vegetables from Cowra, free range eggs from Gunning, organic meat from Bombala, organic salad greens from near Hall, vegetables from Marulan, fresh mushrooms and seafood from the south coast, award winning olive oil from near Hall, mandarins and oranges from Leeton, apples from Batlow, local breads, cooking sauces and condiments made in Canberra, and award winning organic and fair trade coffees roasted here in Canberra. If you have a sweet tooth try some freshly baked, tarts, macarons or cakes.
There is a wide range of certified organic and biodynamic produce available.
After your shopping relax over a cappuccino or a hot chocolate made with real Belgian chocolate, with a crepe, sausage sandwich or gozleme in the courtyard.
There is plenty of free parking.
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.
