CELEBRATING its first anniversary this weekend, the Emerald Bank Farmer’s Market has drawn attention from far and wide. Located at the northern end of Emerald Bank on the first Sunday of each month, the Farmer’s Market brings the best from farm gate to plate and is proudly supported by Emerald Bank and the Shepparton Motor Museum.
As announced in last week’s edition of The Adviser, there have been some exciting developments at Emerald Bank. Emerald Bank owner, Jim Andreadis said, “We’ve received ‘in principal’ support for a 3,000sqm truck and transport museum which will allow 7,000sqm for undercover market space with an offer of funding from council. There are a few more hurdles to jump but if all goes well, this will have great implications for our markets and for all Emerald Bank traders.”
With more than 80 stall holders represented through the Farmer’s Market running concurrently with the Village Market Shepparton each month, 30,000 people have attended the markets over the past year.
Mr Andreadis said, “We aim to support and provide the best locally grown produce and as such are always on the look out for more vendors for the Farmers Market. The prospect of running the markets more regularly in the future is very exciting for all involved.”
