Want to experience a great Sunday morning? Newcastle City Farmers Markets located at the Newcastle Showground has something for all walks of life. This market experience is a casual friendly affair with what the region has on offer.

Towing my kids through the variety of sights and smells we are quickly pulled into the first stall offering a wide variety of fresh vegetables. I quickly grab three bunches of mini silverbeet and a bunch of baby beetroot.


We make our way to the Binnorie Dairy cheese stall, where there is a hive of activity over the freshly made labneh. My three year old quickly gets excited and asks to taste test some of the local produce. I too grab a tub of labneh and their award winning brie. Bustling through with the rest of the substantial crowd, we make our way to beautiful handmade clothing Frankie Small. I instantly fall in love with all the wonderfully colourful prints and the kids clothing, from which I pick up a cute little set for my toddler.

Once again slowly we make our way to the next stalls, which offer great treats and delectables. We find ourselves at the famous Eumundi smokehouse and I'm in heaven! The variety is more expansive than could be found at most grocery stores and the service is amazingly friendly. I grab fresh sausages, chorizo, smoked hock and spec.

I find myself comparing several markets the Hunter has to offer and Newcastle City Farmer Markets certainly ticks all the boxes for food, clothing and entertainment. Speaking of entertainment the fabulous trio had the kids bopping and the adults toe tapping.
