TV cook Adam Liaw to pop in to Albany's Saturday markets
Western Australia's Great Southern region is blessed with a range of microclimates which enables it to produce a vast range of fresh produce.

And one of the best places to find them is at the Albany Farmers Market every Saturday.

On April 6 and 13 the Farmers Market celebrates the big regional festival Taste Great Southern with Shop Local/Eat Local with celebrity TV cook Adam Liaw taking a stroll through the markets from 9am to 10am on April 6.

From the slopes of the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges to the seas of the Southern Ocean, the region is renowned for its fruit, berries, vegetables, seafood, lamb and beef.

The Great Southern is famed for producing the world's best marron.


Every Saturday the carpark on Collie Street, Albany, is transformed into a sea of marquees selling the fresh produce of the region from the people who have grown it.

Because all the produce is local it doesn't have to be picked for an extended shelf life and vine-ripened tomatoes and strawberries can be picked ready to go straight to market.

The list of produce available includes a wide range of fruit, vegetables and salads in season; organic lamb and beef and Lamb; free-range chicken, pork, bacon and ham; honey, goat, sheep and cow yoghurt, soft cow and goat cheese, breads, sheep cheese, milk, cream, ice creams, mussels, extra virgin olive oils, eggs, nuts, jams, preserves, plants and fresh flowers.

At the Albany Farmers Market the groceries come direct from the farm.


The Farmers Market started in April 2002 with 11 producers and has since built up to around 30 producers specialising in different products.

Now an incorporated body, the markets are owned and run by the producers and employ a part-time Market Coordinator to administer the market operation.

Locally smoked bacon and other preserved meats are a feature of the Albany Farmers Market.


Guidelines created by the operators ensure that all produce sold at the markets is from within the boundaries of The Great Southern region and the number of producers selling the same kind of produce is capped.

Late discounting is also banned to ensure the top grade produce the markets are known for is kept consistent.
