Harvest Launceston Community Farmers' Market

Operating from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm, at 71 Cimitiere Street, this authentic farmers’ market has established itself as a signature weekly event where the community gathers to shop, share a coffee and feast on a diverse array of local offerings, dictated only by the colour palette of Tasmania’s four distinct seasons.

Think of the blackness of fresh truffles, handmade pasta and pink smoked salmon, artisan sourdough loaves and pastries, the glorious colours of seasonal vegetables such as zucchini blossoms and heirloom tomatoes, the air scented with bunches of basil, freshly pressed olive oil, hand picked asparagus, plump apples and pears to the reds of the freshest berries or a cold climate pinot noir or riesling wine. Depending on the month of the year, this is just a small sample of what Tasmanian producers, the farmers, bakers, fishermen, growers, jam and pickle makers, winemakers and brewers bring from their paddocks, orchards, cellars and kitchens to transform an inner city car park into a bustling farmers’ market.
