Albany Farmers Markets

Albany Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 8.00am to 12.00pm. It is located just off of Collie Street, next to the main street in town. Here you can buy fresh produce straight from the farmer, whether it is fruit, vegetables, eggs, dairy or meat, fish and poultry. Everything that is sold is seasonal and going towards supporting local produce and giving back to the community. Quality and freshness of the products is of such high quality a sit has literally just left the farm and then is now in your car on the way home, there is no middle man involved. Here you can speak to the farmers and ask them for any tips, recipe ideas or even how they prefer their product cooked best! Come see, try and sample produce that is really local!
