with a ring ding ding of the farm bell at 8.30am sharp, bustling trade begins at farm gate market…
...wade through a collection of prime Tasmanian fresh, seasonal and local produce and artisan products. Tasmania's tastiest and most creative foodstuffs take centre stage at this gala performance.
You will discover hard-to-find cuts like free range Berkshire pork, game meats and goat. The seafood is fresh from pristine Tasmanian waters and the colourful array of fresh stone fruit, berries and heritage variety vegetables that will send your tastebuds into a frenzy.
Gorgeous artisan products include a smorgasbord of cheeses, breads, baked goods, jams, relishes, Tassie wine, boutique beer and many more unexpected gastronomically pleasing delights. And for the green thumb, we can only delight - from native plants to fruit trees, unusual herbs to edible flowers and fertilizers to help them grow.
Buskers provide atmosphere and entertainment and there's plenty to devour onsite with delicious seasonal soups, gourmet burgers and sushi all made to order. With ingredients supplied by producers menus change with the seasons.
Farm Gate Market is Hobart and Bellerive's morning hotspot to meet friends for a coffee and breakfast, read the weekend papers or just enjoy the buzz and friendly atmosphere of the largest farmers' markets in Tasmania.
See you at the market!
