Explore the Best of Local Produce at Albert Park Gas Works Farmers Market 2024

Albert Park Farmers Market

Discover the charm and community spirit of the Albert Park Gas Works Farmers Market, an event that brings together local Victorians and their produce under the historic backdrop of Gasworks Arts Park. Nestled just three kilometers from Melbourne’s bustling CBD, this farmers market is not just about shopping; it’s a cultural and social gathering that celebrates the best of Victorian agriculture and craftsmanship.

When it runs

Scheduled on the third Saturday of each month, the market is a bustling hub of activity from January 20 to December 21, 2024. Visitors can enjoy a range of fresh, locally-sourced goods including deep colored, ripe vegetables, aromatic hand-made cakes, freshly laid eggs, and beautifully arranged flowers. The market prides itself on offering products that are not only high in quality but also grown and made by the vendors themselves, ensuring that each purchase supports local farmers and makers directly.

The market environment is vibrant and welcoming, making it an ideal setting for a family outing or a leisurely Saturday morning stroll. The air is filled with the smells of fresh produce and baked goods, as well as the sounds of local buskers who add a unique musical backdrop to the shopping experience. These performers are a testament to the market’s commitment to fostering a creative and inclusive community atmosphere.

In addition to its role as a marketplace, the Gas Works Farmers Market also serves as a venue for the Gasworks Resident Artist Studios. Market days provide a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the studios and meet the artists, adding an artistic flair to the market experience.


Sustainability is at the heart of the market’s operations. As an accredited member of the Victorian Farmers Market Association, the market not only adheres to high standards of product quality but also champions environmentally responsible practices. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own bags and containers, aligning with the market’s plastic-free and eco-friendly policies.

For those interested in a deeper dive into the arts, Gasworks Arts Park offers more than the farmers market. It is a cultural precinct with year-round activities including visual arts exhibitions, performing arts, and workshops. The park itself, a tranquil green space with public art sculptures and a café, provides a peaceful retreat from the urban rush.

Whether you’re a local resident or a visitor to Melbourne, the Albert Park Gas Works Farmers Market offers a slice of rural charm right in the heart of the city. It’s a place where food, art, and community come together to create a vibrant cultural experience that’s not to be missed.
