Swan Hill Farmers Market
1st Sunday of the Month

The Swan Hill Farmers Market is held on the first Sunday of each month in the picturesque surrounds of Riverside Park, Swan Hill.

Our mission is to maintain a regular accredited farmers market that is an anticipated event in our township, not only for the opportunity to source high quality, local produce but also as a forum to connect and share time with family and friends. It’s also an opportunity to learn together about the benefits of supporting local, sustainable agriculture.

We believe that a farmers market provides a platform for local growers to showcase nutritious and seasonal produce in an environment which has mutually beneficial social and economic advantages for producers and the community.

Each month we average around 20 stallholders presenting a wide range a fresh, regional produce.
