Small-scale food production, sustainable and regenerative farming practices are a big part of what makes the local food economy in the Margaret River Region such a lure.

Get up close and personal with the people behind the produce at these regional markets.

Margaret River Farmers Market Local Produce

The Margaret River Farmers’ Market

Held on the TAFE grounds just south of the Margret River township on Bussell Highway, the Margaret River Farmers’ Market committee works hard to ensure authenticity and accessibility. Every market stall holder grows, produces or makes their products in the South West region. A Saturday morning here is an introduction to community as much as it is an opportunity to buy picked-yesterday produce.

Every Saturday, 7.30am to 11.30am. 272 Bussell Highway, Margaret River.

Vasse Markets

Run by a small collective of stall holders for more than 30 years, the Lions Vasse Twilight Markets bring together hand-crafted goods with fresh produce, coffee and cakes. Visit Barb for one-off quirky animal aprons, trivet mats and pot mitts. Leonie crafts jewellery. Pauline is a 15-year regular with a strong following for her cakes, pies, slices and pickles. A great spot to pick up your down south momento.

1st December 2023, 5th January 2024, 2nd February 2024 and 1st of March 2024. Napoleon Promenade, Vasse Village.

Busselton Foreshore Markets

One of the few Sunday markets open for low-key mornings in the South West, the Busselton Foreshore Market is an even spread between crafts, local art, clothing, regional produce and a couple of great food trucks. The location on the grass along the foreshore precinct is great for families. Take home a yummy freshly made cake, a newly potted plant or a local painting.

Every first, third and fifth Sunday of the month, from 7am – 1pm. Signal Park, Busselton Foreshore.

Markets By The Bay

Held in the centre of Dunsborough at Lions Park, Markets By The Bay pushes a buy-local ethos. Fresh local produce is a highlight, but the net also casts a little wider to catch a bigger market in this centralised visitor location. You might find wood products, books, clothing and pictures among the honey, cheese, paté and locally grown fruit and veg.

September to April, every second Saturday every month, from 8am-1pm. May to June, every second and fourth Saturday of the month, from 8am -1pm.

Origins Market Busselton

Origins Market

Origins Market is a super exciting addition to the Busselton gourmet landscape.

Undercover to ensure happy perusing in all weather, there are over 60 makers, growers, producers and artisans including bakers, brewers, wine makers, fruit & veggie growers, and baristas… everything your heart and tummy could desire. Stock up on delicious local food, fill your drinks fridge, then linger over a glass of wine or beer and something tasty from one of the food trucks – yep, it’s licenced. Kids will be entertained by the nature style playground with art by Ian Mutch.

Thursday & Sunday 8.30am – 6pm, Friday & Saturday 8.30am – 9pm (open 7 days during school holidays). 86 West Street, Busselton.

Augusta Community Markets

Augusta is one of the more relaxed townships in the Margaret River Region, and the locals love it that way. The Augusta Community Markets reflect this close-knit and low-key vibe. The market is occupied by a group of farmers who know their land and are only too happy to chat with you about it. Produce here is incredible, and there’s also a showing from the local artistic community with a range of crafts. And of course, it couldn’t take place in the CWA car park if there weren’t outstanding cakes, relishes and pickles for sale. The market days are irregular, so best bet is to talk to the visitor centre to find out scheduled happenings.

8am to midday, CWA car park, Allnut Terrace, Augusta. An occasional market.
