As the birds chirp and the roosters crow, life in the suburbs on a Sunday begins to stir. While the coffee is brewing, there is a group of Rotarians up and about by 6am at the Combined Rotary Clubs Whitehorse Farmers’ Market. The second Sunday of every month means a 5.15 am alarm for this dedicated group.
As farmers pull in with their produce laden vans, trailers and trucks, the area at the Nunawading Arts Centre is clicking into action. The well oiled machine, setting up powered sites, bins out, directing trucks into their allocated space, all tasks done under the cover of darkness.
Every market sees 65 plus vendors and over 1,500 patrons enjoying the beautiful smells of fresh produce and delights for the tastebuds.
The Farmers’ Market funds many local community organisations and projects.
Held on the second Sunday of every month, the Whitehorse Rotary Farmers’ Market is jointly run by the six Rotary Clubs and the Rotaract Club in the City of Whitehorse. One of the best parts of the market is that all proceeds go back to community projects right throughout the city – a perfect win win!
Do come along to the Whitehorse Farmers’ Market on the SECOND SUNDAY OF THE MONTH between 8am and 1pm. It is held at the rear of the Whitehorse Civic Centre, 397 Maroondah Highway, Nunawading, Melway Ref: 48 G9.
