Margaret River Farmers Market, Winner 2018.

CALLING NOMINATIONS FOR AUSTRALIA’S OUTSTANDING FARMERS’ MARKET

Delicious Magazine Produce Awards 2019 are seeking contenders for Australia’s Most Outstanding Farmers’ Market… a vibrant and engaging community-focused farmers’ market that displays ‘true authenticity’.

‘True authenticity’ is evaluated based on the following definition: ‘A Farmers’ Market is a predominantly fresh food market that operates regularly within a community, at a focal public location that provides a suitable environment for farmers and specialty food producers to sell farm-origin and associated value-added specialty foods for human consumption directly to customers.’ Definition sourced from the Australian Farmers’ Markets Association.

Please note: An authentic farmers’ market excludes resellers, and arts and craft goods, unless made on-farm from farm origin product.

Entry is via application. Completed applications must be returned by the deadline to be considered for entry. The deadline for 2019 entries is 5:00pm AEDT on Friday 5 April 2019.
