For owners of real estate in Bunbury, the local farmers market is a favourite destination for buying groceries, baked goods and a delicious coffee. Due to popularity, it has expanded in size since it was first opened in 2003.
The market prides itself on providing extreme value and freshness all year round. Between 70 and 90 per cent of fresh produce is sourced from local growers in Western Australia, while meat and fish is locally farmed and recently caught, according to the market's website.
With the popularity of the facility outgrowing its old premises, the Farmers Market shifted to a new and improved location at the end of last year and is now well settled in on Vittoria Road, which is centrally located for those living in real estate in Bunbury east and real estate in Eaton.
Due to the huge numbers of shoppers visiting the market each day, the Bunbury City Council will be formally closing part of Jubilee Road to allow for extra parking and assist with traffic flow near the market entrance, according to a March 19 statement.
Residents of Bunbury rentals and residential properties who are regulars at the market will be pleased to know that the council has committed to creating more parking to accommodate the numbers flocking there on a daily basis.
