The Mandurah Boardwalk Farmers Market will start next month, with about 40 stallholders from around the region selling fresh produce, including fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and dairy.

Live bands and children’s activities are expected to complement the ambience.

Dyo events will manage the market and director Katie Mathiesen said it would support WA farmers, growers and producers.

‘People can buy locally grown farm fresh produce and speak directly to the farmer, so they know exactly where their produce has come from,’ she said.

‘I think people are becoming more interested where their food is coming from and the lifecycle of it.’

Ms Mathiesen believed the community would embrace the market.

‘Mandurah has not had a farmers market and it is exciting for the area, she said.

‘I think people have been craving some variety. We believe the market is a great way of activating an under utilised space.’

‘The market starts on November 3 from 8am-12pm.
