farmers markets to visit

The Tweed is a region known for its farm-fresh produce having been named Outstanding Region in the Delicious Produce Awards 2021.  The seasonal conditions deliver local picks all-year-round filling market stalls with fresh produce each week.  

MURWILLUMBAH FARMERS MARKET

The sun peaks through the early morning haze as farmers, bakers, producers and coffee makers prepare their stalls for the morning Murwillumbah Farmers Market. This sunlit market welcomes hatted chefs and aspiring home cooks alike, all living by the ethos of; grow local, buy local, eat local. 

Follow your nose to freshly baked flaky croissants and coffee brewing. Find locally grown and vibrantly coloured fruit and vegetables. Sample assortments of jams, spreads, and sauces, and purchase cheese from local cheesemakers. Fill your bags (and your fridge) with produce from The Tweed.  

Grab a coffee, pastry and enjoy the live music from local and travelling acts.

DURANBAH ROAD FARMERS MARKET

The newest farmers market to call The Tweed home, Duranbah Road Farmers Market is ideally situated on the grounds of Tropical Fruit World. This 500-acre tropical fruit farm gives no illusions to the vast array of exotic produce available at this market. Over 900 different varieties of exotic fruit are grown on-farm making for an interesting and ever-changing market. Not sure how to use that Black Sapote you just picked up? Ask one of the friendly Tropical Fruit World staff for guidance.  

It’s not just funky fruits on offer at the market. Shop direct from the people who grow and make your food from pasta, spices and sourdough, to mushrooms, seafood and fresh flowers. Let the kids run free in the outdoor kids play space while you sip a coffee and enjoy a lime-curd filled donut, tapping your foot to the live music. 

When: Every Saturday 8am – 11am
Where: Tropical Fruit World, 29 Duranbah Rd, Duranbah
