Each and every Saturday, thousands of Canberrans visit the Capital Region Farmers Market to buy the best and freshest produce in the region. We want to ensure that the introduction of the road works around EPIC and the Market don’t deter our Market customers from supporting local. Farmers, bakers, fishermen, beekeepers, cattle growers, food creators and many more come to the Market each week to share their produce with Canberra, and they truly appreciate Market-goers continued patronage and support during this time. Not only does the Market support local food growers, but funds raised from the Market go straight back into the community with our Produce for Purpose initiative.
We appreciate your continued support over the coming months.

Over the coming months, an upgrade of the busy intersection of the Federal Highway and Old Well Station Road is underway to install traffic lights for improved safety.
The process began Monday 7 May and will directly affect Saturday morning commutes to the Capital Region Farmers Market, as Old Wells Station Road will not be accessible from the Federal Highway.
Access to the Market via Flemington Road and Morriset Road has not changed, and both of these routes are still in use.
To access the Capital Region Farmers Market via Stirling Avenue, patrons are advised to take either of the following routes, depending on which direction they are traveling from:
- If traveling southbound along the Federal Highway (i.e. from Goulburn, Majura, or Watson), turn right at Stirling Ave (at the service station/ McDonald’s). Once inside Gate 4, follow the signs to gate 8 turn left to find available parking
- If traveling northbound along Northbourne Ave (i.e. from the City, Tuggeranong or Woden), turn left at Stirling Ave (at the service station/ McDonald’s). Once inside Gate 4, follow the signs to gate 8 to find available parking
These routes will be the most efficient way to access the Market until the end of August 2018 (date TBC) when the roadworks will be finalised.
