Greater Whitsunday Farmers Markets

Mackay, Mackay Area

Weekly from 21 February 2018 - 

Free Entry

The Greater Whitsunday Farmers’ Market is the showcase of local, fresh produce and value added products from within Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday Region.

Every Wednesday morning from 7am to 11am in Mackay's vibrant city heart on the beautiful Bluewater Quay. Join families and restaurateurs in buying local produce that does not come any fresher. All stall holders are guaranteed local to the region and are selling guaranteed local goods that either are grown and caught locally or are made with local ingredients.

Once a month, learn how to cook meals with local produce with The Family Table Mackay who host a cooking demonstration!

Get to meet your local farmer and ask them directly all about the produce you will be taking home to feed your family. Where was it grown? When was is picked? Do you use sprays on this? How best to store the produce? Will this be in season long? And so many more questions!
