Happy Birthday to us! This month our Market celebrates 15 years feeding the Canberra community. After 15 years, the Capital Region Farmers Market is still thriving in Canberra. It’s been 15 years of fresh produce, 15 years supporting local and regional farmers and producers, 15 years supporting community projects and contributions through Rotary, and 15 years successfully feeding our community.
We will mark the occasion with a celebration on market day, Saturday 16th March. Visit us for your chance to win one of 20 bags of fresh Market produce. We will also have stalls set up by some of the many local organisations who have benefited greatly as a direct result of contributions from the Capital Region Farmers Market. Food affiliated stalls will also be on site to celebrate, and visitors can get a real birthday party feel with a huge 15th birthday model cake onsite to mark the occasion.
We really have come such a long way since the Market’s inception back in 2003. We started out in 2004 with just 15 stalls and around 850 customers, and today we are a busy Market offering a range of new and familiar produce to the discerning shopper. The Market now has around 100 stalls and welcomes around 6000 customers each week. We welcome the Canberra community to come along and mark this very special milestone with us and hope to see a bustling Market on 16th March to celebrate.
