Join Us at the Bream Creek Farmers Market!
Bream Creek Farmers Market is a produce based market held at the Bream Creek Show Grounds on the first Sunday of every month, showcasing growers, cooks, brewers, producers and makers, from South Eastern Tasmania and beyond.
Bream Creek Farmers Market is a place to share the excess from your garden or market and sell your Tasmanian produce and specialty products, while enjoying a day of fresh air amongst Bream Creek’s lush green paddocks, a roll down the hill to the seaside.
We believe in locally grown, organic, sustainable produce that is delivered fresh and seasonally by the people who produce and grow it.

What can I sell at the Market?
The Bream Creek Farmers Market is centered around fresh, seasonal food and the Committee invites stallholders who grow, cook, catch or pick Tasmanian produce to join us. This may include vegetables, fruit, grains, nuts, pulses, fresh cut meat, fresh seafood, fresh poultry, milk, eggs and honey, or value-added products, such as baked goods, jams, preserves, confectionary and other food that can be consumed on or off-site. Producers of garden products such as plants, fruit and vegetable seedlings, fresh cut flowers, fertilisers, composts, manures, mulches, seed raising mix, worm farms and worm tea are also welcome.
Still not sure about your product? Contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
How will I know where on the day to set up my stall?
Stall positions are allocated a day or two prior to market day. You will get an email about a fortnight beforehand checking if you plan to attend the market and then another email a day or two prior to the market with your site number and a plan. If you want a specific place, please let use know by email when you confirm attendance. The Market Day Manager (in the green vest) will be there on market day to help you find your spot. Vehicles unloading their goods will need to be out of the market area prior to 8.30am and will not be able to re-load prior to 1pm.
Can I buy products and then on-sell them at the market?
No, the idea of the market is that the grower/cook/producer is also the seller. This is so the customers knows the origin of the food. If you are a producer who is unable to attend a market, a family member, or friend who is knowledgeable about the production of your goods, or a staff member, can sell on your behalf. Please write to the committee if you have a special circumstance that doesn’t fit this criteria. If you have a small amount of produce you may wish to use the Community Stall.
I want to be part of the market, but live outside the Bream Creek area. Can I still participate?
Come along, all are welcome! Our definition of “local” is “Tasmanian”. So if you have a lot of granny smiths on your tree in Huonville, honey in your hives in Oatlands, or you make sausages in Launceston, you are most welcome to sell them at our market.
What facilities are there at the Bream Creek Show grounds?
The show ground has plenty of space, parking and clean toilets as well as electricity and water. The show grounds also have a beautiful view of rolling green hills and lots of space for picnic blankets and seating!
What if it rains on market day?
The show grounds have indoor, undercover and outdoor areas. The market will be an outdoor market unless the weather has other ideas. No matter what the forecast the market will go ahead, and the market committee will decide on the day whether the stall holders should set up outdoors, or in one of the other areas.
