Blue Knob Fibre, Fermenters and Farmers Market

Every Saturday 8.30am-12pm at the Blue Knob Hall and Community Gallery, Blue Knob Rd (10 minutes north of Nimbin).

The Blue Knob Market was opened in 2010 as part of the Nimbin Sustainability Project and within a year 71% of responders to the Sustainability Plan Questionnaire agreed that locally produced foo was now more available (Sustainability Plan PDF link). Now boasting an annual fibre festival and an annual fermenters festival it is a quirky market that blends its fresh produce with fibre artists and food fermenters. This little market revels in being different.

This Saturday morning market is nestled among a hub of community organisations: The Blue Knob Art Gallery, The Blue Knob Ceramics Studio and the Blue Knob Fire Brigade. Blue Knob Hall already has its own art and craft gallery café, so you can shop, appreciate art and enjoy a hot cuppa all at the same time.

The location gives an even greater dimension. Set at the base of the towering Lillian Rock and before the majestic mountain of Blue Knob the market loves to reflect the big heart of the Blue Knob community.

Nimbin Twilight Farmers Market

Every Wednesday 3pm-6pm at the Green Bank Car Park (next to the Nimbin Post Office).

The Nimbin Farmers Markets is well worth a visit if you are visiting Nimbin on a Wednesday afternoon. The market starts at 3pm but get there quick if you are shopping as the produce sells out fast!

“The emphasis is on local growers and producers, and as you can imagine in a region known for it’s alternative lifestyle and permaculture the quality of that produce is very high. You’ll also always find something interesting at Ashlee and Matt’s Barefoot Affair stall – one week it’s Passionfruit Liqueur and stir-fried noodles, the next, home made hummus and luscious spiced pumpkin dip.”

The Nimbin Farmers Markets is a great opportunity to mingle with the locals and buy fresh, local produce with very limited food miles. Every week (with some seasonal variability) you will find truly excellent produce from the Nimbin Valley Dairy, Jason’s Nonsuch Bread stall (try the Organic Chocolate and Pecan Tarts), Jake’s Organic Veggies and the All Natural Meat Co. You’ll also find a variety of fresh cheeses, delicious sweets, oyster mushrooms, tofu and honey as well as some hand crafted cosmetics.

All produce is grown and produced locally, by local gardeners and farmers, for the enjoyment and health benefits of locals and visitors to the village.
