Share Canberra's trusted news:

SATURDAYS in Glebe Park will have more substance and style from November 21 with the launch of the Foragers Markets Canberra, a fortnightly food, produce and artisans market at the iconic park.

Artists, farmers and foodies will feature at a fortnightly market, with live music, a children’s area and chill out spaces adding to the relaxed, festival-style feel each fortnight. Charity and not-for-profits will also have a presence, with free stalls and fundraising initiatives given to a range of community groups.

Kirrily Sinclair, a former Canberra local says “I am most excited to be working directly with CANBERRA YOUTH CARE. I feel strongly about supporting such a wonderful local initiative having experienced youth homelessness myself whilst growing up in the ACT. I am so happy to be giving something back to Canberra Youth Care. Since I established the Foragers brand of Markets in July 2014 I have continued to present excellent local and regional producers of food to people living in, or visiting the area each weekend. I have now established 3 successful weekly markets in Wollongong and am expanding rapidly The average crowd we pull at an event is anywhere from 3000-10000 people.”

“With comfortable chill out spaces, people can drink freshly brewed coffee and read the paper on a relaxing Saturday morning, while listening to live music under the tree’s and the kids play on the grass, Its about supporting all things local and connecting with others in the community. Foragers is a space for those who want to eat more ethically, healthily and economically, while chilling out in a unique space. Its about supporting local groups and what markets are strongly about- personal connections.”

The best food and produce has been sourced for the markets including multiple award winning and notable stallholders from across the A.C.T

Foragers fortnightly markets, Every 2nd Saturday at Glebe Park, 9am-2pm. For more information, including updates on stallholders and surprise treats in store at upcoming markets, go to facebook.com/foragersmarket.
