If you've never been to a Farmer's Market before, it's time to check out. From the fresh produce, the community vibe, and the knowledgeable shop holders - it's an experience worth having. Purchasing fruit and veg from a Farmer's Market will almost always mean the produce is fresh and in-season. You can chat to store holders, find out where the produce has come from, learn about the farms, and most even learn about some fruit and veg you may have never tried before.
When it comes to where to go, we are spoiled for choice in Sydney, boasting some of the best markets out there. Here are five of our favourites:
