COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
Updated: 29 September

YES! Farmers markets are an essential food service under current restrictions, and Melbourne Farmers Markets (MFM) are operating where we can.

This Saturday’s (24th Oct) Abbotsford Farmers Market will be held at the site of Carlton Farmers Market, Carlton North Primary School, cnr Canning and O’Grady Streets.

Remember, we are an essential food service (not a place to gather or socialise) and all DHHS recommended actions while shopping should be followed including; respecting customer limits, wearing a fitted mask (unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so), and not attending if you’re awaiting COVID test results.

Make sure you’re across our safety precautions below and rest assured we’re experienced in the management of these, having continually traded throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have limits on the number of customers allowed on site at any one time, have implemented strict precautions, increased staff, and altered market layouts and flow.
We are confident that the open-air environment of our farmers markets, together with the below precautions and operational adjustments, means our markets provide some of the safest shopping options to you.

– If you’re feeling sick, stay at home.
– Practice good hand hygiene. Hand sanitiser is available at the front gate
– Come to shop, not brunch. Hot food is available for take-away only and must be consumed off-site.
– Limit your time at market. Make a list of things you need so you can shop quickly and minimise your time out of the house.
– Leave the team at home: Where possible, only one person per household please.
– Bring your card: MFM gate donations are by tap and go and there are no ATMs on site. Some stallholders will accept cash, but card transactions are preferred.
– Go to the toilet before leaving home: Toilets will only be made available to the public in emergency situations (yes, a desperate child does count as an emergency – but we ask, where possible, to leave the kids at home).
– Do not touch the produce.
– Adhere to social distancing.

We also have a contactless pick-up available from Alphington every Sunday. For more information, join our Melbourne Farmers Marketplace group.

Fully accredited by the Victorian Farmers Market Association, the market brings a host of Victorian farmers and food producers together on the fourth Saturday morning every month.

The market is managed by Melbourne Farmers Markets (MFM), a social enterprise connecting Victorian farmers and food producers with seven urban neighbourhoods across Melbourne. MFM have been in the St Heliers Street neighbourhood since the 1990s and played a significant part in the fight to save the Convent precinct from development.

Please note: The nature of working with farmers means that unforeseen events do occur from time to time which may prevent producers listed from attending the market. The stallholder list is updated on Thursday, prior to a market day.

Melbourne Farmers Markets respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land on which Abbotsford FM is held, the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders, past, present and future.
