Sydney’s oldest and best produce market is back after a three-month lockdown, with dozens of growers returning to Miller St, North Sydney this weekend.

A smorgasbord of produce including organic fruit and veg, meats, poultry, cheese, fresh flowers, pasta, bread and seafood will be available from 8am-midday, with free parking available on Ridge St.

Deemed an essential service (like supermarkets), please be aware the market will be open to all vaccinated and non-vaccinated members of the public.

Market co-ordinator Lisa MacDonald says people are encouraged to pre-order where possible.

“We thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and understanding of our Covid-19 safety practices which will enable the market to be as safe as is possible and for it to continue to remain open,” she says.
