About the Farmers’ Markets

 

The MRSG is involved in running two Farmers’ Markets in the Macedon Ranges. The Woodend Community Farmers' Market (WCFM) on the first Saturday of every month and the Macedon Village Farmers’ Market (MVFM), held on the months with five Saturdays.

The two markets host up to 50 regular stallholders, from within the Macedon Ranges and the wider region. The WCFM 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.

Both Markets feature a wide selection of locally grown fresh food and specialty goods available, along with live music, free face painting, animal farm, hot food and coffee. The Farmers’ Market 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.
