Woodend Farmer’s Market
Woodend Community Farmer’s Market, run by MRSG is an accredited farmer’s market and is held on the first Saturday of every month. A great market which is part of the network of Macedon Ranges Farmer’s Markets which means that stall holders must be the producer selling their own product. Go to Victorian Farmers Markets for more information and other markets.
The next Farmer’s Market for 2015 will be Saturday February 7 on the corner High and Forest Streets Woodend. The barbecue stall is managed by MRSG and will be vegan food once again presented by the Macedon Ranges Vegetarian Eating Group (Mr VEG). Mr VEG invites you to come along to enjoy some delicious barbecued corn or a tasty pancake with sweet or savoury filling. All are ‘vegan’ food. If you are a local, not for profit, community group and would like to hold a fundraiser barbecue stall at the Farmers Market please call Ralf on 0412 042 169 to find out more. Barbecues and marquee are available for you to use.
Home Produce Exchange is a great chance to swap produce and ideas on home gardening and anything else. Held at the MRSG stall at the Woodend Community Farmer’s Market 10am – 11am unless otherwise advised.
Thanks to all the exchangers for bringing their produce, compost, recipes, eggs, advice, egg cartons, plants, books and anything they can think of for a terrific exchange. Everyone can contribute so please come along.

The production and sale of food locally has many benefits, ensuring agricultural land remains productive, providing income for local producers, reducing food miles and providing a source of non- and low processed food options in an educative and convivial rural atmosphere.
The first Woodend Community Farmers Market was held on the 3rd of December 2011 and will continue on the 1st weekend of the month thereafter to enable weekly farmers market selling and shopping for those looking to support the cause of food localisation.
We would like to acknowledge Café Colenso (www.colenso.com.au) as well as staff, suppliers and customers for their fundraising dinner and the Woodend Lions Club for their generous donation to get the Woodend Farmers Market started.
