about us

In 2009 our market began with an honest and simple philosophy – that if you couldn’t eat it, drink it, grow it or meet the producer, then you wouldn’t find it at Farmy.

That ethos has always held true.  And now, the little farmers’ market that began with just 12 producers has grown into an essential Sunday ritual for locals and one of the top five farmers’ markets in the country.

Tasmania’s distinct growing seasons make for an ever-changing array of produce and that’s what we celebrate every Sunday.

Staying true to what’s in season locally is reflected throughout the market; on fresh produce stalls, in artisan foods and on street food vendors menus.

See you Sunday.

commitment to environment

We are committed to becoming the first plastic free farmers’ market in the country:

2010 | plastic shopping bags banned + 100% compostable packaging for street food vendors introduced

2019 | 100% compostable packaging introduced for fresh produce + glass bottle return systems

Currently | 75% of packaging in the market utilises 100% compostable materials

the grub hub

Nestled in a groovy alcove in the middle of Farmy you’ll find the Grub Hub.

This is where it’s at on Sunday in Hobart for breakfast, a cheeky brunch or lazy lunch, with all the hustle, bustle and smells of a street food market.

Each Sunday you’ll find ten rotating street food vendors dishing up international cuisines with a local twist.

You’ll find locally roasted coffee as baristas sling shots early in the morning alongside the classic breakfast burger bar. 

All dishes are designed specifically to be delicious, devoured immediately, Tasmanian focussed, able to be eaten without a knife and fork and packaged perfectly in 100% compostable materials.

acknowledgement of country

We live, farm and fish on unceded country and waters in lutruwita / Tasmania.

We pay our deepest respects to the first people of this land and their elders past, present and future.

The palawa / pakana are the first farmers and caretakers of lutruwita and their connection to this land remains strong.

We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of palawa / pakana peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together.
