Parramatta Farmers Market

Every Friday Morning Centenary Square comes to life with over 50 food, flower and craft stores that make up the Parramatta Farmers Markets.

While exact stock will vary based on seasonal availability, the markets are a consistent source of high-quality fruit and vegetables, artisan breads and baked goods, fresh meats and organic pantry staples, and florals and botanicals.

If you work near by, it's worth heading over on your lunch break to feast on the cultural flavours on offer from one of the many food trucks that frequent the event. Think authentic Turkish gozleme, Phillipino style BBQ skewers, savoury and sweet crepes and more.

Highlights: The fresh flower stall is seriously Instagram-worthy and lunch-time is always bustling with live entertainment and delicious food options. 

Open every Friday from 7.30am to 2.30pm, Centenary Square, Parramatta.
