Parramatta’s famous Farmers Markets are returning to Centenary Square this Wednesday, with a mix of new stallholders and regular favourites bringing some mid-week buzz to the CBD.
Traditionally held on a Friday, the Farmers Markets will be operating every Wednesday as part of a five-week trial, from 24 November to 22 December between 7.30am and 2.30pm.
Parramatta Farmers Markets regularly showcases a variety of seasonal produce from the Sydney basin and regional NSW including fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, honey, pastries, and flowers, as well as a selection of fresh and delicious street food – perfect for a quick bite.
With the festive season approaching, there will also be plenty of unique gifts on offer from local businesses.
“It is exciting to welcome back the Parramatta Farmers Markets as we see more people, particularly workers, return to the CBD,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Steven Issa said.
“With the festive season almost here, it’s the perfect time to visit. There’s always a buzz in Centenary Square when the Parramatta Farmers Markets are on so I encourage everyone to visit and support our local growers and food producers, and small businesses.”
Vendors are also looking forward to the return of Parramatta Farmers Markets after trade was temporarily closed due to COVID-19.
“We can’t wait to be back at our favourite market. We have missed all our Parramatta customers,” Joyce from Summerland Honey said.
Rico from Baguette Brothers said: “We are glad to be returning to Parramatta Farmers Markets and we are looking forward to being part of all the changes that Parramatta brings.”
“We are excited to bring all our homegrown succulents, they make great gifts and just in time for Christmas,” Nora from Love Plants Shop said.
