Castlemaine Farmers Market is accredited with the Victorian Farmers Market Association (VFMA).
That means that our stallholders are the producers of what they sell – no onsellers or middlemen between you and the source. It means you can tap into the vast knowledge that our stallholders have about what they produce and how they do it.
And it means that the food is fresh, seasonal and from Victoria. By shopping at an accredited farmers market you contribute to the local economy, keep local farmers in business – and eat healthier to boot!

The Castlemaine Farmers Market has been supporting local farmers and providing fresh, local food to our community since 2005.
The Sunday monthly market is held on the first Sunday of every month, from 9 am to 1 pm, on the Western Reserve, Forest Street, Castlemaine.
The CFM Weekly market is also held on the Western Reserve every Wednesday all year round from 2:30pm – 5:30pm.
The market is run by a volunteer committee made up of stallholders and community members.
The mission of the Castlemaine Farmers Market is to promote a positive profile for food, wine and related products in the region and to encourage and support the economic viability of small scale farmers and producers.
The Castlemaine Farmers Market is a not for profit enterprise. Stallholder fees and other funds are used for the management, promotion and maintenance of the market.
