The Wangaratta Farmers Market Inc. is a not-for-profit community organisation run almost entirely by an incredible bunch of passionate and dedicated volunteers who work on the ground, behind the scenes or serve on our Management Committee.
We are an accredited Victorian Farmers Market Association Market. This means that consumers can be confident that all stallholders are selling their own locally grown, sourced and made product.
Our VFMA accreditation means:
- Our producers and makers are located within 100kms of Wangaratta
- We seek to encourage up to 75%of our stallholders to become VFMA members
No wholesalers or resellers are permitted in our market
We carefully curate each market to offer consumers the widest possible offering of quality, local product whilst capping the number of stallholders in each product category to ensure each stallholder has the opportunity to make a sustainable income in our market.
Established in 2015, our market has successfully weathered many challenges over the years including a rapid switch to a weekly online market to provide local producers with a marketplace for their fresh, seasonal producer throughout the worst of COVID lockdowns.
Together, we exist to grow a strong sense of community and a vibrant and sustainable local food ecosystem around a shared love of local produce.
