The Orange Farmers Market is a predominantly fresh food market that operates monthly (on the 2nd Saturday) at the Orange Showground, Agricultural Pavilion, Leeds Parade (May to October), or at the Northcourt behind Orange Visitors Centre (November to April). These locations provide a suitable environment for farmers and food producers to sell high quality farm-origin and associated value-added food products directly to customers.
The three primary aims are:
To support and stimulate the profitable trading and business growth of independent primary producers, hobby farmers, community and home gardeners, and associated produce value-adders.
To provide customers with regular supplies of high quality fresh food and access to improved nutrition.
To contribute to the economic and social capital of the Orange community, and to work in conjunction with the other Farmers' Markets in the Central Ranges.
The Orange Farmers Market is an integral part of the local community and aims to provide various social benefits including:
Food and nutrition education
Regeneration of community spirit
Rural / urban linkages
Recycling of green waste and appropriate packaging
Support for local community projects
