Great market and great view, what more could you want?
If seasonal produce at its very best is something that you are looking for, then it is time to make a beeline to the Limestone Coast Food Farmers' and Makers' Market where some of the region's best quality products are available to try and to buy.

On Sundays from 9am to 1pm, during summer school holidays and all the public holiday weekends, the Farmers' and Makers' Market is held inside and outside the Institute Building on the Esplanade of the popular seaside town of Robe with the stalls surrounding an open picnic area where breakfasts and brunches can be enjoyed.

The primary focus of these food markets at Robe is an outlet for local producers, processors and manufacturers to sell their regional creations direct to the public, near the source of the origin, thus facilitating all round benefits to them, the environment and the local community.

On the grassed lawns outside the Institute Building you can expect to see a number of trailers and a few marquees cooking up a treat. The gourmet meat trailer has a range of freshly prepared country meats and smallgoods on offer to complement the fresh fruit and vegetables available from the marquees. While those looking for seafood, the traditional fare of Robe, you won't be disappointed with some of the freshest fish (caught yesterday!) that you'll see.

Meanwhile, the competition for the best smell of the day is strong with the coffee trailer taking an early lead, with the aroma of the BBQd sausages and meat patties and the enticing kranskys following closely behind. However, the standout winner for taste of the day goes to the bacon jam, a unique treat that sends the tastebuds into a frenzy.

Inside the Institute building the stalls feature locally prepared jams, honey, biscuits, breads, juices and cakes. In addition, a small number of cosmetics, soaps, jewellery, gifts and handicraft stalls add to the experience.
