An authentic country market experience
Held on the first Saturday of each month (except in January and February), Cobbitty Village Market, is truly worth experiencing. There are over 100 stalls, selling a tantalising array of products, ranging from fresh produce, plants, and lovingly home-baked delicacies including rustic sourdoughs, cakes, sauces, jams and chutneys, condiments, pickles, fudge and nougat, to handcrafted items such as luxurious soaps, garden art, woodwork, hats, bags, ceramics, clothes, jewellery, toys and more. One lady I met comes from Glebe every month just to indulge in the country market experience.

The market is wheelchair accessible and held within paved areas and covered walkways and on a grassed, fairly-flat area surrounded by leafy trees. There are plenty of places to sit and rest or to sit and eat. Toilet facilities are plentiful and clean and there is a playground for the children, as well as a farmyard nursery- plenty for both the oldies and the youngsters.

While many people choose to park on the main road, free parking is available in the area behind the market.
The market is very dog-friendly; indeed, I have never seen so many dogs at a market before, but before you take your own pooch, be warned: almost everyone will want to pat your pup, so he is bound to slow you down!

Your Comment
You captured the essence of Cobbitty Markets perfectly. There are so few country markets these days, so it's lovely to indulge in the fresh air, tinted only so slightly by the scent of freshly cut grass, and allow the bubbling chatter of city and countryfolk alike to wash over you. Well said, Rebecca.

I went last weekend (august 4th) - although it was pleasant enough experience I was hoping for a lot more "farmers produce" - there was one stall selling fruit & veg and one selling bread. No meat stalls at all. Its mainly craft stalls which is fine but its not a farmers market at all.
