best farmer's markets in Sydney

Finding fresh, organic food is extremely easy in Sydney – farmer’s markets are everywhere! If you happen to be staying in a place with a kitchen, all the better to enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor. But even without a kitchen, the markets are worth your while. You’ll find daily munchies, smoothies, prepared food and the most gorgeous flowers to brighten your day.

Just remember, go early for the best selection (and parking!) and don’t forget to bring cash. Also, take the time to have a chat with the farmers. Whether you’re a Sydney local or friendly visitor, you might learn something new about whatever it is you’re eating.

After visiting more than a dozen different farmer’s markets, here’s my pick for five of the best farmer’s markets in Sydney.

    I love the French’s Forest markets. You’ll find me there every Sunday. I’ve been wanting to visit Everleigh for awhile now, and I think I’ll have to add EQ to that list too.

    • French’s Forest is awesome for a Sunday brekkie! And you’ll LOVE Eveleigh! Just make sure to take a big bag. ;)
