One of the stallholders at the Murwillumbah Farmers' Market

Murwillumbah Farmers’ Market offers some of the finest and freshest produce from the Tweed Valley and Northern Rivers.

At this market REAL farmers sell their own FRESH produce most of which comes from within a 55 kilometre radius. The market’s priority is to support local farmers and keep road miles to a minimum. A small range of produce including freshly picked crisp apples, muscat grapes (seasonal only), northern rivers processed olives and oz rice – are from a little further afield where the climate better and growing conditions are better suited to this produce.

The market delights in passing on the provenance of its produce together with helpful tips for its preparation and cooking. Visit the market's Facebook page for weekly updates on produce.

Murwillumbah is in the beautiful 'Northern Rivers' region of far north NSW

Great atmosphere

You’ll love the atmosphere. The market is developing a reputation for its wonderful vibe, camaraderie and a place to catch up with friends each Wednesday. Freshly brewed coffee, teas, smoothies and juices along with bagels, wood fired pizzas, Mediterranean tarts, samosas, muffins, baklava, chia pudding and a variety of sweet treats means that you find locals enjoying social gatherings with friends, great conversations with the producers and wonderful live music.

A variety of produce

The market offers the freshest seasonally available fruits (incl. dragon fruits, strawberries, blueberries), vegetables, dairy, artisan cheeses, olives, macadamia and pecan nuts, honey, avocados,  rice, salad greens, eggs, freshly baked artisan breads, conserves and preserves, locally caught seafood, meat, and much more. There is also a selection of certified organic fruit, vegies, meat and dairy.  And much more so check out the Markets "What's New" web page. 

While the end of August sees the last of the locally grown citrus with only lemons and limes available for a little longer, the market is looking forward to the return of locally grown blueberries by the bucket and next year it is also hoping to offer organic kiwi fruit.

The 72-year-old is working with her friend Ian Kelly, award-winning biographer of Brummell and Giacomo Casanova, on a personal memoir which will be formed partly of her own voice and partly by contributions from her vast network of friends, family and associates.
