Farm fresh produce by the beach
Bayside Farmers Market brings farm fresh produce to the seaside every third Saturday of the month in sandy Sandringham - rain, hail or shine - and unlike our hard working farmers, you don't have to get up at day break to pick up the freshest locally and regionally grown seasonal produce.

Get your fresh seasonal produce locally at Bayside Farmers Market every third Saturday of the month.


With over 80 different stallholders, there are also barrow loads of homemade and organic delights like jams, sauces, dips, cheeses and cakes to choose from, as well as a petting zoo with baby farm animals for the littlies, bringing the farm quite literally to the beach. Ample parking is also easily accessible and within a very short walking distance at Jetty Road and the Sandringham Football Club (free for Baysiders who display their permit).

Since May 2011, Baysiders have been enjoying the convenience of this lovely little farmers market on their doorstep, thanks to Hampton and Sandringham Rotary, Regional Farmers Markets, local community groups and Bayside Council. Make sure you stop by the Rotary barbeque for a calorie-worthy breky or lunch, with organic free range green eggs, fresh locally baked bread and gourmet sausages made by a multi-award winning local butcher.

To date, proceeds from market entry donations and the Rotary barbeque have enabled this longstanding volunteer organisation to support a range of community projects and international causes, including Bayside Toy Library, Sandringham Hospital, Hampton Life Saving Club, Hampton and St Mary's primary schools, Holy Trinity and Helen Paul kindergartens, Camp Awakenings, the Salvation Army and Resilient Aspiring Women (RAW).

Globally, there are some 1.2 million people who call themselves Rotarians, volunteering within 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries. The Rotary Foundation is also one of the world's largest charities, supporting projects like End Polio Now, working towards worldwide polio eradication.

If you're interested in being involved in Rotary, why not stop past the Rotary barbeque or tent while collecting your home harvest at the next Bayside Farmers Market and have a chat to local members? You can also visit Rotary Australia's website for more information.

As the nursery rhyme says, "to market, to market to buy a fat pig!" Or "to market, to market to buy a plum bun." Whichever way you're inclined, Bayside Farmers Market has the wholesome local food you'll love, all year 'round. Bring the family, friends - even Rover is allowed on a leash - and venture down to the beach for your fresh meat and three veg, as well as a few treats, every third Saturday from 8am to 1pm.
