We’re BACK!

All good things come to those who wait!

Pop-up markets resume on the 7th November 2020!

Our wonderful market is back in a new-normal CovidSAFE format, with weekly markets until Christmas 2020, each Saturday morning from 8 am to 11 am.

Food and drink cannot be consumed at farmer’s markets in accordance with current DHHS guidelines, so we cannot have our famous breakfast made with farm-fresh produce yet and our stallholders can’t offer you samples.

Our stalls will appear a little differently because our main priority is keeping you (our patrons), our stallholders and our volunteers safe during these Covid regulated times.

Our stalls are double-spaced to allow plenty of room for you to access every grower while maintaining 1.5m distance from other attendees. The stalls will be “front facing” to prevent congregating in the stall. Please queue at 1.5m spacing for your turn as required by the DHHS. Regular stalls can only have 2 patrons at a time, and the larger stalls can only have 3 patrons shopping at one time, to maintain the social distancing requirements.

You will need a face mask unless you’re medically exempt, and we recommend that you point to your selections and not handle any produce or products that you’re not purchasing. Stallholders will happily collect your selections for you and place them into your bags.

Each stall will have approved hand sanitiser available for your use, and stations will be positioned around the market with hands-free temperature checking and sanitiser dispensing. There will also be QR CODE check in signs around the market and we strongly encourage you to scan and complete this for contact tracing if that becomes necessary. Don’t worry, your details are not visible to any other users and are only stored for the mandatory 28 days and will not be used for any other purpose.

While we love to see you at the market, this is not a social event and we encourage you to come, shop, and go. This will allow more people to visit the market without creating congregating crowds or breaching the 4m2 per person rule for outdoor gatherings. Grab a coffee from Glen’s “Common Ground” van on your way out!
