Starts at 8am and finishes 12 noon.

Runs the Second Saturday and Fourth Saturday of Every Month, except January. Apologies for March 2014, 4th Saturday, we cannot hold the Market due to the Castle Hill Show.

This is a seasonal market and the produce advertised will only be available in season.

The Hawkesbury Harvest Farmers and Fine Food Markets are just what the doctor ordered. An abundance of fresh produce to tempt the taste buds of most hunters and gathers.

Let's begin our journey by succumbing to the tantalizing aroma of freshly ground coffee beans brewing away in the crispy early morning air of the Show grounds. As you sip your coffee you will drawn by the perfumes of the many freshly cut blooms as the flower stalls arrange a vast array of colours and species to suit all occasions.

As you do the rounds it's hard not to be drawn to the amazing variety of fresh herbs and spices available. The crispy baby rockets, extra virgin olive oils, sun dried tomatoes and Darling Mills amazing array of olives and fresh basil.

Willowbrae cheesemaker Karen Borg uses a traditional French farmhouse method to produce a variety of goats cheese sold at the markets by her husband David.

Crunchy sourdough breads, traditional pasta's even the staple family meals like bangers and mash can be accommodated.

The fantastic array of gourmet European sausages and the variety of old fashioned Irish spuds will turn a staple Aussie meal into a Chef's delight !

Enjoy browsing through the stalls of fresh fruit and veges, freshly picked berries, crunchy greens, vine ripened tomatoes, stone fruit and our famous Bilpin apples - even an apple pie or two !

Whilst doing that final once around stopping to pick up some exotic Australian Native Foods, yum, Wild Hibiscus flowers in syrup, Desert Quandong jam or some Lemon Myrtle and Native Pepper berry seasoning a must for any good foodies pantry.

Our markets promote the importance of fresh seasonal produce, sustainable local agriculture, showcasing small business and introduce our many visitors to the wonders of our Region. The Hawkesbury.

We are a small scale, chemical free farm on the NSW Central Coast, only 45 mins from the Wahroonga M1 exit. We are family owned and operated. We run grass fed beef, moving our cattle onto fresh grass daily. We have a few dairy cows that we have just started milking and we also run pastured raised chickens and pasture raised muscovy ducks. We grow vegetables in season and chemical free garlic over winter. We always have cows, ducks and chooks – but special times during the year we also have calves, ducklings and chickens!

We have a real passion for connecting people with their farmers, for people to understand how their food is farmed and for them to get the know the growing number of regenerative farmers on the Central Coast. We love what we do and would love to be able to share our passion for farming with you. We would love to answer your questions and teach you more about where you food comes from.

We offer a range of farm tours – Morning Chores Tours (available daily), Weekend Farm Tours, School Holiday Tours and Homeschool Tours. Please give us a call or send us a message and we will help to find the right tour and time for you.
We normally have fresh produce available to purchase direct from the farm. We have 2 cafes within 500 metres of us. Ask us for more information on the wonderful family owned cafes in the area.
