For fruit, vegetables, meat and so much more; you’ll find only the freshest produce at some of Sydney’s best farmers markets!

There’s no denying that Sydney is a hotspot for its hospitality. But where does it all come from? How does a local or tourist experience the source of the city’s famed culinary scene? Enter farmers markets.

Unlike markets which are perfect for fashion lovers and those trying to snap-up a bargain on some knick-knacks, farmers markets are the epicentre of local producers and farmers selling off their goods. Think fruit, vegetables, nuts, meat and so much more. Usually organic, artisanal and straight from the crop, farmers markets are the best way to shop for groceries!

So, whether you’re a foodie wanting to explore the eclectic mix of Australian growers and farmers or, if you want something fun to do on the weekend, read on through our list of the best farmers markets in Sydney to visit this weekend!
