Local food and wine producers and artisans to come together for Mudgee’s biggest community market of the year. You will find Ceramics and silver jewellery next to award winning macarons or Olive Oil. Painters rub shoulders with textile artists, jewellers with bread makers – if it is handcrafted, baked, bottled or grown locally it will be for sale at this Makers Market.

An urban farm Walk?

The Mudgee Farm Walks focus on the grass roots level of production, where participants meet the farmers and learn exactly how the produce is grown. There is often the chance to pick your own and taste the delicious produce in its freshest state. Two farms are visited on the third Sunday of the month, and the Farm Walk for March 19th will have the best of both worlds. We visit an urban permaculture farm right here in Mudgee, and then pop out to Pipeclay Lane to check out the kitchen gardens and vineyard at Robert Stein’s Winery and Vineyard.

Farmers Markets – your community markets

With the recent bush fire tragedies in our region, now is a good time to pause and think where your food comes from. Our farmers are out in all weather, and in conditions like last week, just trying to keep everything alive. At the Farmers Markets on Saturday we will be collecting funds for a Fodder Drive for the district farmers. Dunedoo CWA have put their hand up to co-ordinate collection of hay, grain and funds to help out the farmers who have lost all their grass and feed from fires. See the box on the raffle table if you wish to donate.

Otherwise all our usual stalls will be at the markets, so see you there early

Start the year with a trip to the farmers markets

January brings the heat, but it also brings lots of produce. Whilst the olive growers are watching their olives ripen on the trees, and the wine makers are watching the bunches of grapes swell on the vine, our fruit and veggie growers have been busy in the kitchen pickling, and preserving and there’s nothing like fresh jam on toast.  

Be early on Saturday to miss the heat, and of course get to choose the full range of fresh produce before it all sells.

With just one week to go till Christmas day,The grounds of St Mary’s Church will be buzzing on Saturday morning.

It’s the last chance to get a bite at the cherry for this season – see Clearview, Roth Farm and Thornbrook orchard stalls.

Farmers Market folk love winter

Its July, it’s cold and windy, and it might even be wet. But you still need your fix of a freshly brewed coffee and that Saturday morning Egg and Bacon Roll before you get your supplies of fresh produce. So come on down, the Farmers Markets are always on the third Saturday of the month come rain, hail or shine. Find us in the St Marys churchyard, on the corner of Church and Market Streets, from 8.30 till 12.30.

Saturday night dinner? We’ve got it covered..I’m thinking slow roast pork roll from Merrifield Free Range Pork, coated in a grainy mustard from Luciano’s Bit on the Side, desiree spuds, parsnips and pumpkin to roast from Kurrawong Organics, apple sauce from Adriennes Kitchen, and to wash it all down, a bottle (or two) of 2013 Gatekeeper Shiraz from Yeates Wines.
