The Boroondara Farmers Market is held every third and fifth Saturday of the month from 8am to 12.30pm at Patterson Reserve, Auburn Road, Hawthorn East.

See upcoming market dates.

The market sells produce from all around Victoria. You can buy fresh fruit and vegetables, seasonal organic produce, meat, herbs, honey, eggs, bread, olives, cakes, dips and sauces, and wine and beer.

If you care about food and the planet, then talk to the dedicated farmers and locals who are just as passionate and learn about the ingredients and processes involved in the food they bring to market.

It's a great way to:

  • shop in a community
  • reduce your food miles
  • support small Victorian primary producers.

Bring the kids and your four-footed friends – everyone's welcome!

The Boroondara Farmers Market is an initiative of the City of Boroondara in partnership with the Rotary Club of Glenferrie who also manage the market on market day. All money raised supports community projects run by the Rotary Club of Glenferrie.

The market is accredited with the Victorian Farmers' Markets Association (VFMA) and proudly supports the principles behind genuine farmers' markets.
