Stock up your weekend sweets and grocery here
The Coffs Coast Growers Market happens every Thursday from 8am until 3pm and is located in the large pedestrian city square area next to the Coffs City Centre.


This is definitely a food lovers market here you will find quality home-bake goods, artisan breads, macadamia nuts, specialty cakes and sweets and many high quality fresh organic produces.


The market was established back in 2003 and it is one of the most recognized regional market in the Coffs coast. The Market is in an outdoor setting complete with many wonderful onsite local alfresco cafes and eateries nearby.

Market Entrance

Ultra fresh vegetables and bags of freshly plucked fruits are bountiful here at the growers' stall.

As this market is very popular, I would recommended coming early to see the full range of products on offer.

During this particular Thursday, a finger-lime jam stall caught my attention. I have never seen a finger lime before and I was very curious. The lady was so friendly, informative and obviously proud of her products.

Finger Limes

Finger lime is a native Australian fruit where the lime is in the shape of a chubby finger.


It is full of caviar-like pearls that burst upon eating. It has a sweet citrus taste and can be used wherever a lime is used, such as salad, drinks or desserts.

It was a visual and taste sensation.


Greek To Go is a must stop. Their gorgeous top quality home-made Greek sweets glistering in golden syrup and the rustic savoury pasties are inviting.

All freshly home-baked with love by Angie and they are absolutely amazing.


The Macadamia Lady Fingers are competitively priced at $2.00 each or 6 for $11.00. You will stop at your tracks when you see these delightful phyllo lady fingers baklava filled with Australian macadamias, baked then drizzled with honey syrup. They are just divine.


The next popular Greek sweet is the baklava priced at $2.50 each. More golden phyllo pastry filled with nuts and delicious citrus cinnamon syrup - how can one resist?

Angie's signature Spanish and fetta cheese pita looked luxuriously delicious. They are priced at good value ($5.50 for a gigantic slice) and the demand for them are high.

I bought Angie's signature halva cake and it was the perfect weekend treat.


Here you will also find bundles of fresh organic vegetables, herbs and fruits.

Indian, John Arkan, Coffs Harbour, Samosa, Butter Chicken, Deputy Mayor,

I have been informed by a local that I must try the samosa here at the market. There was no difficulty in finding the stall. The vendor is an energetic Indian, full of vibrant character.

The samosas with dahl and yoghurt and butter chicken sauce ($5) looked delicious. There weren't many left and lunch time had just started.

Ladies' Home Bakery is another popular stall. Old fashioned baked goods attracted many purchases. Come early for these because they sold out fairly quickly. My hands were too short and I just missed out on some of the most beautiful butter laden macadamia shortbread.


We love this Growers Market because we can connect with our food directly and meet face-to-face with the growers and producers.


We met some amazing people with great stories, their friendliness and smiles were the highlight of this market.


We find the Coffs Coast Growers Market to be a genuine local market where you will find interesting local product and produces.
