Media Release – 16 September 2011
Canberra’s popular Saturday morning farmers market, the Capital Region Farmers Market, will be on tomorrow, Saturday 17 September 2011.
The market organisers have confirmed that it will be business as usual with the market open from 8am to 11am despite this morning’s industrial fire in the suburb of Mitchell.
The market welcomes all its regular stallholders, customers and those visiting the nation’s capital for the first day of Floriade, for what will be a regular day at the markets with a range of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood on offer direct from local and regional producers. The market also welcomes visitors to its newly opened ‘food ready to eat’ area.
The Capital Region Farmers Market in Canberra is a genuine farmers market with over 100 stalls offering a diverse range of fresh food and agricultural produce straight from the producer to the customer. All funds generated from the Market are fed back into local and regional communities and other projects chosen by the Rotary Club of Hall which founded the Market in 2004.
