Set amongst the bustling Melbourne Innovation Centre is Alphington Farmers’ Market. The market features a range of stallholders bringing fresh, seasonal produce from their farms across Victoria. From Mildura to Flinders, Kinglake to Timboon our farmers travel to sell direct to the public, along with VFMA accredited bakers and specialty makers. Every week you’ll find fresh fruit and vegetables, free range eggs and meats, olives and oil, honey, nuts and grains, dairy and cheeses, breads and pastries.

There’s coffee, fresh OJ and loads for brekkie or to take home for lunch. We have a wash up station to eliminate single use disposable items and Alphington FM is proudly plastic bag free so don’t forget to BYO.

This exciting initiative is a transformation from old Council offices and a barren concrete scape to a productive community meeting place, directly opposite Alphington Train Station.

Other planned features include a commercial kitchen designed to divert food waste and support new food start-up businesses, establish community composting facilities, a farmer’s storage and coolroom depot, co-working offices and an abundant urban agricultural project all facilitating learning and sharing to strengthen the local food system.

Sociable dogs under control and on short leads are most welcome.

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. Stallholder lists are updated every Thursday.

Melbourne Farmers Markets respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land on which Alphington 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.
