Our Market will be open this coming Saturday. We are an essential food service bringing the Canberra region fresh, healthy produce, and will continue to maintain food supply from regional growers and a healthy diet for Canberrans.
We have received positive feedback from the community and will continue to support our farmers and growers for as long as we can. Thank you to our customers who are well aware of space, stand back and keep the social distancing measures top of mind.
We now ask for our community to work together to keep everyone safe. We are putting in as many measures as we can so that we can continue to access fresh food while also making sure we can follow social distancing to do our bit to move through this situation.
Please follow all directives from ACT Health and do not visit the Market if you have visited a listed restricted area or you have been directed to isolate.
Stallholders who are from a restricted area will not be attending the Market. Their produce is allowed to be transported into the ACT and we are working with them to ensure their produce can still be available to our Canberra community.
We have reintroduced tables and chairs into our food court area, however we need everyone’s help in keeping our Market safe. All shoppers are asked to clear and wipe down their tables after use, as well as sanitise their hands once they have finished eating.
Please Note: Our changed traffic arrangements will still be in place for the Market this Saturday, with all vehicle access to be via Old Wells Station Road only. All pedestrian access will be via Gate 4 (Service Station entry) only.
Capital Region Farmers Market encourages the use of face masks for shoppers, staff, volunteers and stallholders whilst at the Market, however they are not mandatory at this stage. Please be aware of any changes to this advice via our social media channels and website, as well as monitoring the latest advice from ACT Health.
We thank all of our customers and stallholders for your support during this unprecedented time. By following the above guidelines we hope to continue to remain open and maintain this essential food supply.
As an essential food service, Capital Region Farmers Market will remain open so that we can continue to offer the ACT community the opportunity to purchase fresh regional food from known sources / growers at a time when there is a need to maintain food supply and healthy diets.
We are taking the current situation very seriously and will be taking additional measures to minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for our stallholders and customers.
New measures include:
We ask that our customers please:
Thank you to all of our customers for your support of our farmers during this difficult time. We know how important it is for you to be able to access fresh regional food to maintain health and wellbeing. We will continue to provide this opportunity to the ACT for as long we are able, however, we will remain reliant on advice provided by the Chief Minister’s Office and ACT Health for the best interests of the community.
Please make sure you stay up to date with any announcements from ACT Health on COVID-19 via their website.
