Ballarat Farmers Market

Access info

Ballarat Farmers Market takes place in central Ballarat near the shores of beautiful Lake Wendouree.

The market runs all year round and has 50 to 90 or more stalls depending on the season. Enjoy a coffee van, hot food cooked on the spot, fresh vegetables, fruit, bread, olive oil, cheese, jams, chutneys and sauces, clothing, fudge, gifts, health bars, eggs, honey, wine, Cornish pasties, fresh ground coffee, yummy biscuits and hand-made jewellery.

Craft, clothing and gift stalls are available, as well as a range of dry goods (flours, grains, pulses, dried fruit, herbs, herbal teas, nuts and much more) and plants, including natives, edibles and succulents. The market is set in large park lands north of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens. Stroll under the dappled shade of mature trees as you enjoy the market before a visit to the lake or gardens.

Many stalls are seasonal local producers and the range is different at every market. There really is something for everyone.

The market operates on the second and fourth Saturday of each month – except in December when they run the usual market on the Second Saturday then a Twilight Christmas Market on the Friday before Christmas.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
