General information

location + operating hours

Farm Gate Market operates every Sunday on Bathurst St (street market) between Murray + Elizabeth Sts from 8.30am - 1.00pm.  Rain, hail or shine!

Trade begins with the ringing of the farm bell!

parking

HOBART:  The Hobart Central Car Park operated by Hobart City Council will open every Sunday in line with the market.  They are running a promotion for the months of September + October and car parking is free on Sundays.  After that, parking is a maximum of $4 for a full day on Sunday.  Entry is on Melville St and there is a walkway that leads straight into the centre of the market on Bathurst Street

There is plenty of free parking available in the surrounding streets also but for those of you living in the surrounding suburbs why not put the kids in the pram and visit us on foot. What a great way to spend a Sunday!

toilets

Both male, female, disabled toilets and a baby change can be found in the Hobart Central Car Park as you enter from the Bathurst St entrance

busking

Buskers are integral part of the atmosphere at Farm Gate Market and we encourage you to come along. If you are interested in busking at the market please email or call organisers to book a day and time

farm gate market + the environment

Farm Gate Market is proud to be plastic shopping bag free. Re-usable Farm Gate Market bags can be purchased at the Farm Gate HQ or at any of the stalls - they range from $2 for for our racy red non-woven bags to $10 for our Big Reds

90% of our waste is either composted or recycled

smoking

dogs

Sadly due to Local Government by-laws we can't accommodate your dog within the market - this does not apply to guide dogs.  However you will find an area at the top of the market, near the LINC library, where you can hitch your pooch while you are shopping and where water bowls are brimming!
