Gloucester Farmers Market – Ethos

  • An outlet for home grown and fresh regional produce
  • Provide the community with fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, flowers and plants from farms and growers in the region
  • Reduce the cost and impact of food transportation
  • Encourage organic production and a minimum use of chemicals
  • Provide free advice to growers including how to adapt to our changing environment. (via the Tucker Patch)
  • Provide free stall space to local not-for-profit and charity organisations wishing to offer food and beverages as a fundraiser.
  • Provide a fun, safe venue for families and to encourage local entertainers
  • Encourage recycling and use of non-plastic packaging

Gloucester Farmers Market was conceived out of The Gloucester Project, an initiative which aimed to support and encourage self-sustaining communities. A farmers market was a natural progression from this idea, as it provides the venue for regional growers and producers to come together and sell their produce direct to the community.

Growing & evolving

The Gloucester Farmers Market has evolved to include select artisans who’s creativity and craftsmanship complement the ethos of the Market.
