The Margaret River Farmers Market has been a feature of the region for over 13 years.
From humble beginnings the market has grown to be a Saturday morning fixture with up to 50 stalls.
Only producers from the local Shires and surrounding south west are eligible to set up a stall.
The stalls are operated by the people who grow or make the produce.
This makes the Margaret River Farmers Market one of only a few genuine Farmers’ Markets in the state.
The Farmers’ Market is a business incubator, with local producers testing new products and developing new enterprises from the opportunity created by its thriving, vibrant atmosphere.
Each market features a breakfast bar run by a local charity, school or sporting organisation to raise funds for their cause.
At Margaret River Farmers Market Unplugged, we’re passionate about promoting a real understanding of high-quality food and wine.
Moreover, we aim at bringing recognition to the talented and dedicated people who spend most of their waking hours laboring over the land that gives so much bounty.
We know that this love, care and dedication is why the Margaret River region has become one of the gastronomical stars of the world, with food and markets that are outstanding.
In an environment where food supply in Australia is increasingly controlled by large supermarket chains, Margaret River Market is an important alternative outlet for produce and an integral part of successful farmers’ businesses.
Customers can connect with the producers of the food they eat, and feel confident that the produce has a low carbon footprint, supports local livelihoods.
This helps to preserve the environmental integrity of the Margaret River Region.
