Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market
Trade in the trolley and enjoy a stroll amidst outdoor stalls of local and fresh produce, products and live entertainment.
Weekends are a special time in Tasmania. Not only is it time to relax, indulge your senses and explore, it is also a time when alleyways, halls, carparks and streets across the state are filled with local produce, products, community and of course coffee.
Each Saturday, an otherwise unassuming inner city carpark in Launceston in northern Tasmania turns into a feast of colours, food, sounds, treasures and people as the Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market springs to life.
The accessibility of local produce in Tasmania is never more apparent than at such markets, where you can talk to the farmers and taste food harvested that same morning.
Opening at 8:30am, the Harvest Market is the perfect place to pick up a locally roasted coffee, and enjoy a breakfast, or perhaps brunch for the later risers, of freshly made bread and pastries. Before loading up on seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers, organic milk, free range eggs, hormone- free meats – and don’t forget the locally made preserves, cider and cool climate wines – to take home with you.
Looking for the perfect recipe to use all of your fresh produce? The Harvest Market have that covered too, with seasonal recipes on their website.
