The Market and its rules have evolved since their inception in 2004 and are constantly being updated. Consequently, the Committee is continually working on the elimination of anomalies. Anomalies are currently managed under ‘grand-fathered’ arrangements and no further applications of associated products will be approved.
Current Market anomalies include:
The Capital Region Farmers Market offers a number of benefits to consumers in addition to freshness, quality and access to a wide variety of regional and seasonal food.
The Market helps to substantially reduce food miles between the growers and your table. Food from the Market comes direct from the producer, with the majority of produce coming from less than 300 kilometres, resulting in lower transport costs and a reduction of the carbon footprint.
The Capital Region Farmers Market offers diverse quantity and quality of fresh products without restriction on price competition between stallholders. Prices are set by individual stallholders, with a premium on quality. Prices are minimised by ensuring appropriate competition within the Market.
