Ballarat markets

Welcome to the homepage for

Ballarat Farmers Market and  Brown Hill Market!

DUE TO COVID 19 restrictions, both markets are SUSPENDED until further notice.   Please go to our Stallholders page for information on how to contact stallholders directly.  PLEASE support them during this time or they may not be here when we resume.  It’s that simple.  They need your support… and maybe you need some of their local produce or products!

These markets feature the same management & core stallholders.  They operate on the Second Saturday and Fourth Saturdays of each month.  The Second Saturday market is at Lake Wendouree (Ballarat Farmers Market) and the Fourth Saturday at Brown Hill Hall (Brown Hill Market).

We operate all year round – including in the winter – so you have regular access to our wonderful stallholders.  Note that some stallholders only come once a month, and others have highly seasonal produce, so the range of stalls varies at each market.

We hope you have a great experience visiting our markets!  Thanks for supporting our hardworking and creative stallholders who bring such a wide range of fabulous produce & products to the market.

A market hamper raffle is drawn at 10 am and 11.30 am.  Entries are just $1 or FREE if you are a first-time visitor to the market!  Hamper contents are donated by our generous stallholders, so winning the hamper gives you a wide range of products from our many different stalls.  Each donating stallholder also gets a free ticket in the draw.

Stalls include: both organic & non-organic fruit & vegetables, bread & cakes, meat, cheese, dry goods (spices, grains & pulses), vegetarian baked goods, jam, mushrooms, wine, honey, healthy snack bars, hot food (Indian, sausage sizzle, pasties,  meat/pork/breakfast rolls, dumplings, vegetarian sausage rolls, potato twirls,  and much more!).  Some of the other options from our stallholders include steam-punk jewellery, dog portraits, vegetarian dog treats, vegetable and flower seedlings, bulbs, native plants, fresh ground locally blended coffee, tea blends, second-hand books… and lots more!

Yes, we always have a coffee van on site!

Remember, the stallholder range varies with the seasons as one of our priorities is to create outlets for local and seasonal producers.  Some of our producers come just once or twice a year, so you never know what you’ll find!

We also have a FREE stall for local community groups, so please contact us if you’d like to promote your school, charity or service club.  Email or call 0409 551 539

happy hamper winner!

Our famous hamper competition!

Most of our wonderful stallholders donate an item or two toward the hampers.  We create two hampers which are stuffed full of fresh produce, fabulous products and vouchers for hot food, drinks and discounts.   Every stallholder who donates gets a free ticket in the draw.  The hampers vary market to market, but are usually well over $100 retail value.  Tickets are only $1 or FREE to first-time visitors.  The hampers are drawn at 10 am and 11.30 am, and winning one will definitely make your day!
