Boyanup & District Farmers Market

Established in November 2002

In the year 2000, in the heart of winter, a group of freezing farmers attended a breakfast and workshop in the small town of Boyanup, just 20 minutes drive from the regional city of Bunbury. These brave people had assembled because of a common interest in preserving the rural aspect of the Boyanup area and in exploring other means of marketing their produce. Liz Kerr, Community Development Co-ordinator attached to the Capel Shire Council at the time, had recently completed an Eastern States tour sponsored by the local shires, looking at innovations in rural communities. During this tour, Liz saw a number of extremely successful farmers’ markets operating and felt that Boyanup, given its position on the South Western Highway, could benefit from a similar enterprise. On her return, Liz invited Jane Adams, considered to be the Australian expert in farmers markets, to Boyanup to address interested farmers and community people at this first chilly meeting. From this beginning, a working group was set up from those in attendance at this meeting. Subsequently eighteen months were spent researching, planning, seeking funding for and organising the Boyanup and Districts Farmers Market, and the inaugural market was held in November 2002. On this day, the market bell rang to salute the beginning of trading at 8 am and by 10 am several of the stalls had completely sold out of produce. An auspicious beginning indeed!! The working group was thrilled by the large crowd that attended this first market- not only did this confirm their conviction that people were wanting to buy locally grown fresh produce, but also the fact that at the markets, shopping was a social experience, with people able to actually enjoy catching up with friends and neighbours without being attacked by wayward trolleys. Since this beginning the Boyanup and District Farmers’ Markets has definitely grown in stature and size and now proudly boast a devoted clientèle that attends every market and a regular group of producers who enjoy the constant contact and feedback from their customers. Both groups enjoy proving that “fresh is best!” The aims and terms and conditions of the Boyanup & Districts Farmers Market are outlined in our Market Charter

How to Become a Stall Holder

Download the Stall Application Form

Extract from the Market Charter: Interested producers wishing to sell produce must provide a completed market application form to the Market Manager and pay the appropriate stall fees. The Market Manager on behalf of the Market Management Group has the authority to reject applications that do not comply with stated conditions. Once approval is given, the permit to trade applies for the duration of the season. If the number of applications exceeds the available stalls, or there are too many applications to sell the same type of produce, the Market Manager will give priority access to: 1. Seasonal members of the Association 2. Registered members of the Association 3. Producers/manufacturers from within the Boyanup & Districts Region 4. Producers who have the earliest registration date. 5. Stall holders who have traded previously in the Boyanup & Districts Farmer’s Market 6. Certified Organic Producers Members of the Market Management Group will also be offered priority access to the trade at the market regardless of the above criteria, in acknowledgement of the voluntary work done on behalf of all potential stallholders. A waiting list will be developed and maintained if necessary. A ratio of 1/10 will be maintained to ensure there is not an oversupply of any one product.
