Southside Farmers Market
Corner of Launceston Street and Yamba Drive, Phillip
The Southside Farmers Market is a village market that provides all the fresh food that you need for your weekly shop. The market has a great range of fresh, seasonal produce from around 60 stallholders each week - including fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, honey, bread, cheese and dairy, gourmet treats and much more.
Amongst the wide range of food available, you will find vegetables from Cowra, free range eggs from Tharwa, organic meat from Bombala, organic salad greens from near Hall, fresh mushrooms and seafood from the south coast, award winning olive oil from near Hall, vegetables from Thirlmere, citrus from Leeton, apples from Batlow, Gunning and Pialligo, local breads, cooking sauces and condiments made in Canberra, and award winning organic and fair trade coffees roasted here in Canberra. If you have a sweet tooth try some freshly baked, tarts, doughnuts, macarons or cakes.
There is a wide range of certified organic and biodynamic produce available.
After your shopping relax over a cappuccino or a hot chocolate made with real Belgian chocolate, with a crepe, waffle, sausage sandwich or gozleme in the courtyard.
This Week (28 August 2016)
Don't forget to come to our new home at Canberra College this week.
And just like that we are having our last market for winter! We are all looking forward to the warmer months and all that beautiful spring and summer produce however there is still lots of great winter produce to enjoy.
Make the most of the late season apples from our apple producers or be sure to pick up a bag of juicy mandarins in all their amazing varieties. It's a great time to pick up in-season pumpkin and potatoes and fresh winter greens.
Are you looking for certified organic options for your weekly produce? We have a great selection of certified organic produce including vegetables and greens from Cowra as well as Canberra's own organic farmer Gleann Na Meala based in Hall. Organic potatoes from Crookwell are a big hit every week. Organic meat is available from Ando's Organic who are happy to take weekly orders on your favourite cuts of lamb or beef. Organic dairy including milk, yoghurt and award winning cream is available from Country Valley Milk which is sold by Andrew at Kurrajong Meats.
And of course, don't forget to pick up your weekly essentials of bread, milk and eggs. And maybe a cookie or two. A doughnut? Lamington? Perhaps a macaroon is an essential pantry staple this week?
So much to look forward to this Sunday! Come and meet the people growing your food.

The market is a proud supporter of our local community, so you might also see the Yellow Van, Woden SEE-Change, the Canberra Valley Lions Club, local church groups, or some of our local musicians.
Market signs are green for produce grown or processed by the stallholder and white if the stallholder is an agent for another grower or producer. If in doubt, ask the stallholder.
