Carriageworks Farmers Markets

Sat 8th August, 2020 – Sat 19th December, 2020
45 Wilson St, Eveleigh NSW 2015
Buy olive oil loved by top Sydney chefs, award-winning saucisson and outstanding eggs that’ll remind you what good eggs taste like.

Eveleigh arts and culture precinct Carriageworks went into voluntary administration earlier on in 2020. Thankfully, though, it’s been saved – with a mix of government grants and philanthropic donations. And that means its popular weekly Farmers Markets is back too.

The market stocks fresh produce from a community of more than 70 NSW producers, who gather every Saturday, together with Sydneysiders.

It has also established a strict safety plan due to the pandemic, operating as a shop-and-go service (meaning no hanging around to munch on your Flour and Stone croissant), with entry limited to 350 shoppers at a time, more space between stalls, and and face masks encouraged.

There's no time to dawdle between stalls, so it's worth making a shopping list before you go (find our recommendations here).

At Alto Olives, you'll find table olives and vibrant, flavoured extra-virgin olive oils (a particular favourite of former Icebergs chef Monty Koludrovic). Australia’s first social-enterprise bakery, Bread & Butter Project, has freshly-baked loaves of bread and pastries. Pick up a free-range bird to roast and eggs at Thirlmere Poultry Supply; seeds and plants at Wormticklers Nursery; and award-winning French saucisson (cured sausage usually made with pork, wine, salt and pepper) at La Bastide.

Then finish up at Pepe Saya, where you'll find the Sydney's best hand-churned butter, plus crème fraîche, buttermilk and mascarpone.

Carriageworks Farmers Markets runs every Saturday from 8am to 1pm.
