Chilly morning here at the Victor Harbor Farmers Market

It’s chilly, and we’re set up well with signage, as well as stallholders spaced out.

Inman Valley Poultry aren’t here, sorry if I mislead anyone by saying they would be.

If the rain stays away it looks like we should have a good morning, people are respecting the social distancing rules, doing their shopping and moving on.
8.00am till 12.30pm.

There’ll be plenty fresh produce @Saturday’s market

There will be plenty of fresh produce for you at tomorrow’s market.

Virgara’s Garden, Gina’s Kitchen & Field Berries, Con and Harry and the Coffee Club all have fresh veggies and fruit.

Please, don’t crowd the stalls, keep 1.5m apart. Only pick up what you are going to buy, and do that with a bag. This is so important.

Albert at From the Grain will select your bread for you. Neil’s seafood at VICTORFISH is very safe, but again, please queue behind the counter staying 1.5m apart. The same goes for Chocolique , Anna’s Homestyle Baking, Feather & Peck and Lilyarra Cheeses.

We are out in the Fresh air, but we must still practice social distancing, not shake hands, cough or sneeze into our elbows, and of course, not be there if feeling unwell.

Apart from all that we should have a good morning!

Market open Saturday, please practice social distancing

We are trading on Saturday. We are a food market, so we can at this stage continue to trade.

  • Our stallholders will be spaced further apart, and we ask that you practice the social distancing guidelines that have been constantly published.

  • Just do your shopping and move on through the market.

  • If you get take away food, please don’t sit down to eat it.

  • When selecting your produce, pick it up by a bag, don’t touch anything if you don’t want it.

  • If there are too many people at a stall for safe social distancing, please wait, don’t crowd the stalls.

  • We are all in this together, and we need to do these things to be safe.

We will be open this Saturday, please visit again for updates

Victor Harbor Farmers Market will be open this Saturday, a lovely cool morning for you to shop in the fresh open air.

We are of course monitoring the current situation, our stallholders are taking all necessary steps for a healthy shopping environment for you and for them.

The market is an open air, continually crowd changing environment, not subject to any restrictions at this stage.

Please practice the “Stop the Spread” advice available at SA Health.

We have topped up our ONYA products for Christmas, and have these great Backpacks available as well. Hard to believe they squish down into those little bags! So handy for your market shopping!

Plenty of the 5 piece Produce bags now, still some of the 8 piece ones left too.
And these great completely compostable 36L bin liners.

So come and see John and Gill at the Membership and Information Stall on Saturday. Sorry, cash only.

VHFM Raises Funds for Important Projects

Victor Harbor Farmer's Market raises funds for important projects

Victor Harbor Farmer's Market raises funds for important projects

The Victor Harbor Farmer's Market is looking forward to a solid summer season. Winter can be bleak, but due to a loyal band of customers and stallholders they continue to keep a tradition going that has been going for 11 years in December.

Seven stallholders have been part of the Victor Harbor Farmer's Market (VHFM) since it inception.

The VHFM is a not-for-profit incorporated association and has donated $9900 in the 2018/19 financial year to groups who need assistance.

HELPED START IT: Brenton Tamblyn was the first manager of the Victor Harbor Farmer's Market in December 2008.

The inaugural manager of the VHFM Brenton Tamblyn remembers proudly the origins of the market and the amount of money it has donated to key groups.

"The market offers something different in produce and it is a community with an identity of its own. Initially it was established by the City of Victor Harbor and with this support we have created a special service to the community," Brenton said.

"Over the 11 years, the market has donated significantly to charities and the community, in particular to groups like the Salvation Army, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Bradley's House, the Community Garden and schools in the region."

Brenton has always been a constant at the market and runs a stall each Saturday morning from 8am to 12.30pm. Like all stallholders, Brenton is there rain, hail or shine.

"We put growers and producers directly in touch with customers and Grosvenor Gardens really does come alive each Saturday," he said.

"The place is full of character and we are a family. I would like to give credit to former chair of the VHFM Jane Williams. She is a passionate foodie, very generous and well liked. It is what the market is about."
