The Woodend Community Farmers' Market (WCFM) is a lively local event that is well supported by the local community. The WCFM currently hosts 50 regular stallholders, from within the Macedon Ranges and the wider region. The market is fully accredited by the Victorian Farmers' Market Association(VFMA), meaning that customers can have confidence in the authenticity of the producers within the market, and have the opportunity to build direct relationships with the people who grew or made the produce on offer.
There is a wide selection of locally grown fresh food and specialty goods available, along with live music, free face painting, children's story time, hot food and coffee. The WCFM action group aims to build on the current success of the project so that the market continues to serve the local community of producers and patrons, strengthen our local food system, and attract further visitors from our town and region.

Waste Action Campaigns in 2019
The Woodend Community Farmers Market is delighted to welcome Katherine Bishop as the new Farmers Market Manager.
Did you know that reducing your meat and dairy intake may be the most effective way you can act to stop the impending climate disaster?
In a recently published article in The Guardian, findings of a new Oxford University study were outlined: “whilst meat and dairy production provides just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions”.
OK, so it’s time to change. But how, you say? What should I cook? Will my kids/partner/guests eat it? What about my health and fitness? What about when I go out?
MRSG VEG group members Heather and Suzanne will be at the MRSG tent at this Saturday’s Farmer’s Market to discuss everything you need to know to get started on a plant-rich diet.
Bring out your dead! Batteries, that is.
