What I love about visiting markets are the connections and community that comes with each one. United by the common love of home-grown / home-made, it brings people together and unites them. Fairfield Farmers’ Market is a great example of this.
Set amongst the grounds of Fairfield Primary School, this market has a great following from locals as well as those coming from nearby suburbs. Donation goes towards projects at the School.
There is a wide selection of produce available such as:
- Olive Oil and olives
- Peanut butter
- Fresh fruit and vegetables
Take the time to chat to the stallholders and ask about their products and produce. They are eager to share their stories and journey.
How magical are the colours in this picture below? I can feel a cook-up coming on.
As always I’d recommend you bring your own bag or trolley along so plastic bags don’t have to be used. Also try to bring smaller notes.

ATM: There is EFTPOS available onsite at the gate. There are also plenty of ATM’s in Grange Road, Fairfield. Please bring small notes. We all know that the ATM’s dispense $50’s and stall holders are prepared for that but when so many people turn up with larger notes it becomes problematic for them.
