Organic Food Markets


When: Weekly
Where: Across Sydney (visit website for full list of locations)

For Organic Food at market prices and Fair Trade products come to one of our weekly markets at Chatswood, Frenchs Forest, Hornsby, Kings Cross, Leichhardt and Marrickville. Come and visit us for Organic and Conventional food, vegetables, tea and coffee, oils, baby foods, vitamins, gardening, skin care, cotton and dog food. Come and visit us for breakfast, lunch, a cup of coffee, to meet and talk, for tools and books and much more. Meet the farmers and cooks.

What is Organic food?
At a minimum, Organic food is grown on land which has had time to become clear of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and herbecides. In addition none of these are used to assist in growth. If an animal is to be reared organically it will be fed on organic produce, not given growth hormones or antibiotics and generally not have been subject to intensive rearing.

Is all the food on the market Organic?
No. Some of the food is Organic and some of it is conventional. Conventional food is grown using the current prevalent agricultural methods. We have requested all stallholders to display yellow signage clearly indicating the status of the food they sell. If you do not see such a yellow sign on the front of a stall please advise us..

How do I know its Organic?
Your best guarantee that produce, eggs and meat is Organic is to ask if it is Certified Organic. There are several bodies in Australia that exist purely to audit Organic food production and/or distribution. If in any doubt ask the stallholder and check the labelling on the package. Stalls selling Certified Organic produce will normally make sure you are aware it is Certified.

What about prepared food?
Most of the hot food on the market is NOT organic. Other prepared food like bread or cakes may be made using certified produce. Stallholders who use organic ingredients will normally sign that they have done so. It is best to ask if this is important to you.

The Rocks Markets


When: Every Friday, Saturday & Sunday
Where: The Rocks
Foodies Market, 10am-4pm Fridays & Weekend Market, 10am-5pm Saturdays and Sundays

What makes a great market? If it’s about passionate people selling things you want to buy in a pretty cool location then
The Rocks Markets is one of Sydney’s greatest. You know The Rocks is on the doorstep of the CBD, but it’s slower here, and infinitely more charming. And, really, who wants to rush when there’s so much to take in. Where else can you buy dresses and bags designed by the stallholder, one-off jewellery, original artworks and prints, local produce and freshly cooked food in a place where you can feel the sun on your face and catch glimpses of our gorgeous harbour? If you haven’t been for a while, come back. You’ll be genuinely surprised. It's easy to get into The Rocks on foot. Alternatively you can catch a train, bus or ferry to Circular Quay or park in one of The Rocks' convenient parking stations.
