Farmers' markets are at the heart of Slow Food. It's not just the most direct source of fresh produce but also a genuine, accessible way for the public to find the real story on how our food is farmed.
Slow Food Melbourne invites you to its farmers' market at the Abbotsford Convent on the fourth Saturday of each month. The market illustrates Slow Food principles and the Victorian Farmers' Markets Association accreditation criteria and all proceeds are be directed back into local Slow Food endorsed projects.
This is simply about Victorian farmers getting what they deserve for their efforts and consumers getting value for what they pay for.... no long cold storage, no gases, no over processed chemical laden foods and no GMO's. Just delicious, nourishing seasonal foods in an atmosphere that promotes conviviality and community.
Come and find seasonal, organic and low/no chemical fruit and vegetables, free range, rare breed and heritage meats, fish, chooks and eggs. Then there's handmade cheeses, pasta, condiments, bread, honey, olive oil, flowers, seedlings and much, much more!
