Farm Gate Market

Every Sunday, come rain hail or shine, a busy street in the heart of Hobart transforms into a bustling farmers' market. It's all about Tasmanian produce and getting to know your farmer, and it always has been. Five years back, our market began with an honest and simple philosophy, that if you couldn't eat it, drink it, grow it or meet the producer, then you wouldn't find it at the market. That ethos has always held true. And now, the little farmers' market that began with 12 stallholders has grown into an essential Sunday ritual for locals, one of the top five farmers' markets in the country as voted by Australian Traveller Magazine and Silver Medal winner at the 2015 Australian Tourism Awards for Excellence In Food Tourism. Tasmania's distinct growing seasons make for an ever-changing array of produce and that's what we celebrate every Sunday. Staying true to what's in season locally is reflected throughout the market; on fresh produce stalls, in artisan foods and foodie menus. We know our farmers very well and we'd like to share their stories with you. Whenever you're in Hobart, we'd love to... see you on Sunday.
