Held on the same site as the City’s original food market, dating back to 1791, Centenary Square comes alive every Friday between 8am until 3pm. Filled with high quality fresh produce and food direct from growers located in the Sydney Basin and Regional NSW.
From in-season fruit and vegetables, to farm fresh eggs and meats, honey, nuts, dried fruit and seeds, oils, vinegar’s and dhukka. With over 20 stalls, there is temptation at every corner.
A short 5 minute stroll from the interchange and Westfield, you can easily buy a freshly brewed coffee and warm danish and continue on your journey to work. My personal favourite however, is to park in Westfield, do some serious damage to my wallet in the centre and then grab some fresh produce for the next few days.
Perfect on a summers morning, there are ample tables and chairs under bright coloured umbrellas so you can sit down and enjoy a fresh coffee. There is a water fountain that will keep the kids entertained and cool while a 2 man fiddle band plays catchy tunes. The council has also set up a chess board at the Westfield end of the Square as well as table tennis tables throughout. It’s a beautiful mesh of food and culture.
This Council run market provides the perfect setting for local growers and artisans to bring their high quality, authentically local produce to the Western Sydney Community. Along with having a local food focus, the Parramatta Council are supporting these markets with the core values of sustainability and value, cultural diversity, community health and education.
You can check out the full list of stall holders on the City of Parramatta Councils website.
Why not take a stroll through the market square this Friday!
