Farmers Markets

We sell our fruit in season (November–April) at the following markets (see below). We sometimes miss markets depending on fruit availability; subscribe to our Weekly Fruit Tips free eNewsletter to stay up-to-date.

As we say in our Sustainability Plan, our marketing policy is:

      “As a priority we sell our fruit locally, ie, in the same water catchment as the fruit is grown”.  

We first supply our most local markets—Wesley Hill at Castlemaine, Castlemaine Farmers Market, and Bendigo Community Farmers Market.

If we have enough fruit we also supply other farmers' markets. We only attend farmers' markets that are accredited by the Victorian Farmers Market Association (VFMA), because this gives you the guarantee that what you buy is produced by the person selling it.
