Jan Powers Farmers Markets

Jan Powers Farmers Markets brings all the flavour, faces and fabulousness of regional growers, farmers, producers, artisans and craftspeople to Brisbane every Wednesday in the city and every weekend across the region.

Are you looking for somewhere to buy your fresh produce, Cathi from Ladies In RACING Magazine loves the 'JAN POWERS FARMERS MARKETS' held every Saturday, Wednesday and third Sunday – ALL OVER BRISBANE

Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods. The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets.

Jan Powers Farmers Markets changed the shopping and purchase behaviours of Brisbane residents slowly, but surely. Jan singularly banged on and on, and pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food……..  Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, plus there is a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place – a haven for city workers and residents.

The Jan Powers Farmers Market is Brisbane’s go-to for fresh farm produce, flowers, breads, artisan products, meat, fish, poultry, plants and organics. “Markets were the heart and soul of cities of old,” said Jan. “They were where families connected, where the city met and mingled, argued and loved; and the farmers markets are the modem day incarnation of this, therefore, they are at the heart and soul of Brisbane.”   Jan is now joined by daughter Sammy Power in running the markets. It’s in their blood - Great Grandfather T C Beirne had market stalls in Fortitude Valley more than a century ago.
