First look: Farmers and Foodies Market opens in Kingston

9 August 2016

The market will run every Friday from 3pm to 7pm, with the idea being that people can pop through to get their food shopping done after work. Or they can settle in, listen to live music and grab a bite to eat or a glass of wine before heading out to dinner on the foreshore. 

Organiser Stacey Allen is an old hand at the market business - she helped set up the Southside Farmers Market at Woden. 

Allen hoped to start with 10 stalls but there was a big response and she has signed up 30-odd stalls. 

You can expect to see Stella Rossa wood-fired bread, the Urban Providore from the Fyshwick Markets, and milk from the dairy at Tilba on the south coast, among others.  "There's fresh veggie, fresh pressed juices, wines, cheese, meats, eggs, ethically produced barbeque chickens. There's everything you could possibly need for your weekly produce shop."

"Our hope is that it becomes part of people's weekly routine. It's not stressful, they can come and catch up with their friends."
