Newcastle City Farmers Market


Newcastle City Farmers Market

Newcastle Entertainment Centre & Showground
Sunday, 29 January 2017

NSW Farmers Market Pty Ltd has been operating Farmers and Makers Markets since 1999 where we trialed our very first farmers’ market at the Historical River Port of Morpeth, NSW. In March 2000, along with other creative souls, we initiated the Original Fine Food Market at the Honeysuckle Railway Sheds which were, sadly, to last a fleeting 8 months. The site is now the new home for Newcastle Museum. Since those early trials and tribulations we have seen the establishment of other farmers markets right across Australia that have mushroomed into an important industry for food producers and the public wherever they operate.

Over the many years we have introduced many new farmers and artisans to a supportive hungry crowd through our market initiatives. Many of these fine food and artisan market creators are still attending the market after all these years of operation. We have said for many years that Farmers and Makers markets are good for product development, good for the local economy, good for sustainability, good for the environment, good for public well-being and good for tourism.

Newcastle City Farmers Market is one of our Companys’ initiatives in the Hunter which commenced initially and briefly at the Broadmeadow Basketball Stadium late in 2004. Since early 2005 the market has called the Newcastle Showground and Entertainment Centre our public space for bringing together local farmers, producers and hand-made artisans to 6,500 customers per week. Our Company understands that to run a successful market management needs to have a high level of passion, imagination, perseverance and skill for the market to be successful. At the other end of the market is you the customer who help guide the success of the market through your ever attentive support. As well as the locals from the many Newcastle suburbs and adjoining Shire of Lake Macquarie, we know that many of you come from all over the Hunter Valley, Mid-North Coast and Sydney areas to attend. Quite a few even catch the train to Broadmeadow Station and then walk to the Showground to do their shopping. And like our customers, our Farmers and Artisans both local and greater NSW, come to attend a very special and vibrant Farmers, Food, Wine and Makers Market in the heart of Newcastle every Sunday.
