This Saturday’s Lancefield and District Farmers’ Market will offer a destination brimming with a diverse range of produce for the whole family.

Created with care by farming and food manufacturing family businesses from across the region, the market has recently expanded to accommodate up to 85 producers each month.

There is a huge selection of fresh produce; meats and seafood, cheese, eggs, nuts, honey, condiments, treats, beverages, regional wines, craft beer, skincare items, lots of plants; seedlings, herbs, natives, exotics, heritage fruits, plus live poultry, stockfeed and more.

Market manager Meggs Hannes said the market was this year celebrating 20 years of trading, but was always welcoming new stallholders.

This month’s market welcomes new producers Allenbee Fields – award winning preserves made in Tooboorac by Lee Butler; and Blue Eucy – high quality eucalyptus oil products grown and created in Inglewood by Richard and Jacob Jeney.

Pamela White, from Pyalong, also makes her market debut with vegetable seedlings and Martin’s Family Cherries are returning with their new season cherries and cherry icecream, produced on farm at Moama.

“While the market runs from 9am to 1pm, it is best to get in early for best selection from fresh produce vendors as the market has been very busy in recent months,” Ms Hannes said.

“If you are looking for great quality items that friends and family will love at Christmas time, this is also a great place to look.”

The market has a wide selection of market fare and locally-roasted coffee from Rafael’s Coffee and Waymaker Coffee is available.

A seated area is provided with shade, and Thermomix demonstrations are at 10am and 11am at the Lions Kiosk. There is also live music from artist Jarrod Shaw.

Community stalls this month are Lancefield Country Women’s Association; Lancefield Historical Society and Lancefield Football Club will be selling their history book; and the Country Fire Authority will provide information for fire season preparation behind the Lions Kiosk.

The market, an initiative of the Lancefield Neighbourhood House, is plastic bag free so people are encouraged to bring their own trolleys, baskets and bags.

Friendly dogs are welcome on a leash and there is free face-paint for children, provided by Pass-the-Parcel.
