Fancy a Sunday morning stroll? Think that stroll would be made 10x better with a bag of fresh produce in hand?

 

We think so too. And, now that Summer is here to stay, what better time to head down to a farmers market? Think - fresh fruit and veg, baked goods, local artisan products… the list could go on forever. But, whether you're after fresh produce for the weekly food shop, or just there to grab a Sunday morning breakfast - we've got you covered. And the best part? You can get there in 20 minutes or less.

Spice up your Saturdays at the Serpentine Jarrahdale Markets. Organised and run by non-profit organisation, Serpentine Jarrahdale Food and Farm Alliance Inc., this market is your ticket to a smorgasbord of fresh local produce, where you can not only fill your basket - but get to know the farmers behind all the goodies. From local, to local. That's what they're all about. With a range of stallholders from Medulla Valley Olive Farm, to Cooper's Classic and KCK Gourmet - your next Christmas hamper will be filled to the brim with artisan treats.

3. Piara Waters Farmers and Artisan Markets  

 

Sundays will have you spoilt for choice. Mix it up on Sunday, December 17th, for the Piara Waters Farmers and Artisan Markets' last hurrah before Christmas.
