From the Melbourne Farmers Market newsletter:

The weather forecast is great, the line up of stallholders is fabulous, local community groups and buskers are ready and the school community is raring to go! Now all we need is the good folk of the North to come out in droves to show that Melbournians support Victorian producers.

Stallholders locked in include:

  • Plains Paddock Lamb
  • Hazeldean Farm organic veg
  • Boisdale Best veg
  • Bundarra Berkshire
  • Three Bridges Apples
  • Greenvale Farm
  • Five n Dime Bagels
  • Myrtleford Butter
  • Kingfisher Citrus
  • Bee Lovable Honey
  • King Valley Pies
  • Peninsula Fresh Organic Veg
  • Gippsland Pasture Fed Meats
  • Goldfields Cheese and more…

Of course, we’ll be rocking along simultaneously at the Abbotsford Convent with the wonderful stallholders, but Coburg’s goal is to introduce a new crowd to shopping direct, so please help spread the word.

See you at… Coburg North Primary School

180 O’ Hea Street (just down from the excellent O’Hea’s Bakery), Coburg

Saturday 27 April, 8am-1pm

BYO bags etc. $2 donation for school projects appreciated at the gate.
