We're working hard to make sure that our accredited Victorian farmers' markets can continue to trade, and that people can continue to buy food from farmers.
Throughout the challenges of 2020, then-Minister for Agriculture, Jaclyn Symes lent her valuable support so that "farmers markets could continue to operate, to ensure Victorians have access to the fantastic fresh produce our farmers work tirelessly to provide."
Accredited Victorian farmers' markets are more than simply places to exchange goods for money, and we are committed to seeing them continue, embrace these challenges, and evolve post-Covid19.
Accredited farmers' markets provide an opportunity for our farmers to sell direct and take full credit for their efforts. By shopping at authentic farmers' markets customers are guaranteed access to quality, freshly harvested produce whilst supporting local farmers and directly putting money back into regional Victorian communities.
