About Eynesbury Market

Eynesbury Market is the inspiration of people that love the ability to create a place that genuine farmers, producers and makers  can meet and sell directly to the public fresh, local and organic foods. The produce sold is locally grown, fresh, and is usually cheaper than in supermarkets. The aim is to increase local food supply, stimulate local economies, and create opportunities for small scale enterprises. 

Eynesbury Market is controlled by our incorporated Body: Friends of Eynesbury Inc . 

The market will be promoted by signs on the highway one week before the event, and advertised in local community newsletters and publications.

Eynesbury Market happens on the 4th Sunday of each month from January 2017.

BENEFITS AND ACHIEVEMENTS By selling direct to the public, the market strengthens the local farming community and economy and gives the community access to fresh produce at a lower price. “If you came to the markets and bought $30 of veg, you’d need a wheelbarrow to take it home” The market also promotes environmental sustainability by selling produce not accepted by bigger companies. “The fruit and vegetables have to be the right size, colour and texture to be accepted by supermarkets and wholesalers, so the farmers market eliminates a lot of wastage” As well as offering fresh produce to improve supply, other benefits include social networking and education. The markets regularly run cooking demonstrations and other activities for children. “We will have had cooking demos with (hopefully) famous and great local chefs coming in.
  The stalls also surround a large grass area, where people can come together and have a cup of coffee and a yarn, and the children can run around and play.” 

 

“The aim is to empower our rural farming community. We cannot stand the foolish idea of ‘fresh’ at supermarkets!”
