Shop at the Market this Long Weekend

This long weekend is the perfect time to visit Albany Farmers Market and enjoy fresh, Great Southern produce, coffee, and food.  Bring your friends and family for a true taste of what the region has to offer - fruit and vegetables, artisan cheeses, breads and pastries, meat, fish and more.  Bring the kids too for gelato from Handasydes or chocolate milk from Yard 86 and make it a family morning out.  We welcome you and look forward to seeing you there, 8 - 12 Saturday, Collie St Albany.


Apple Season Arrives

Redgum Hill Orchard are very excited to start the 2021 apple harvest this week, and have been picking juicy Royal Galas for the market this Saturday.  They will also still have a good range of plums and a small supply of peaches. 


Avocadoes are In

Jeni and daughter Lucy from Bornholm Growers are back at the market weekly with their locally grown avocadoes.  They have different varieties available, and can pick you the perfect avocado for your needs.  Need an avocado that's ripe now, or ripe in a few days?  Ask Jeni or Lucy!


Spray-free Melons

Juicy rockmelons and watermelons are in season and you will find loads of them in the market at the Felton Farm and Piacun Farm Produce stalls this Saturday - and they're spray-free!


Spray-free Produce Every Week

If you are looking for spray-free and sustainably grown produce, talk to our farmers and you will find their produce is grown with minimal or no use of chemical sprays.  Our farmers are a wealth of information and love getting to know their customers and receiving feedback, and our customers enjoy getting to know the people who produce their food.  If you have any questions about produce at the market - ask the farmer!  


Coffee and Breakfast every week!

Head to the laneway at the back of the market and you will find the friendly crew from Shotcallers Espresso serving up coffee and more, and Market Grill making delicious meals with fresh, market produce.  They are there every Saturday morning, 8 - 12, making sure our customers and stallholders are happy!


In and Out this Week

Great Southern Seafoods will not be at the market this weekend, but return weekly from 6th March.

Perfect Poultry is in this weekend.

Thousand Miles Tofu will be back on 6th March.
