Would like to just put this out there, not sure if others caravaners experience this also. We are regular caravaners to the lovely south west and with our previous pop top caravan on our way past and back were always able to get into the car park at the BFM, but now we have a larger caravan, there is no way we could get into the car park and there is certainly nowhere surrounding to park either, a bit disappointed. We has just driven past again sadly 😔😔😔 ... See MoreSee Less
Bunbury Farmers MarketHi Kay-Lene, thanks for your msg - I’m not sure how big you rig is but on the weekends travellers who can’t or don’t want to drive into the car park often use the primary school car park... maybe try that next time, just a thought? 🙂
I love visiting the BFM .... but today I am very Disappointed 😔 that I just got home to wash my expensive grapes and realized they are from the USA! 😔😢🤔😳 never did I think of looking at the label at Bunbury Farmers Markets, given they advertise everywhere that they support local farmers. I would have rather gone without. 😢 ... See MoreSee Less
Bunbury Farmers MarketHi Lori, no need for sad faces, please let me explain why you’ve still done a good thing and supported local - like we say... the vast majority of our produce comes from our local growers, but some of it comes from further afield when it’s not available locally (or the quality and in the quantities we need here). For instance, when the WA grape season finishes we may source them from the US so that customers who wish to buy grapes all year round know they can do so at BFM, meanwhile those who prefer to only buy seasonally available local produce can use their discretion and decide not to buy the overseas stuff. The important point in this example is even if we have US grapes in the Market that doesn’t mean we’re supporting US farmers instead of WA Farmers (because the WA Farmers don’t have grapes to sell at that point). What is true though is that anything you buy from the Farmers Market (even US grapes) is supporting the Farmers Market which in turn sustainably supports over 150 local growers... so you see, you’ve still done a good thing even if you missed the origin label whilst shopping today, I hope that makes sense? 🙂
SUMMERTIME SALADS COME RAIN OR SHINE! (Freshly made onsite daily = ready to grab & go)
They say you can’t make friends with salad, but they obviously haven’t tasted a freshly made Farmers Market salad then have they!?
Not only will you make friends with our incredibly moreish selection of ready to eat salads, you’ll quite possibly have trouble keeping them away if they find out you’ve got a secret stash in your fridge!
And that’s one of the cool things about Market Made salad range - because we freshly make and pack them here every day, you can keep them in your fridge for a couple of days for when you’re good & ready!

Our recently revamped cafe area now sports a separate fridge full of our Market Made grab & go snack options, like the super popular granola, yoghurt compote jars pictured here.
I’ve noticed a significant (and awesome) increase in social media activity (picture posts and the like) featuring our Market Made treats recently and so I’m just wondering...
What’s your favourite BFM food pick at the moment?
What’s especially convenient about our freshly made, ready-to-eat salads is that if you’re not quite ready to eat your ready-to-eat salad there & then, that’s ok because our freshly made, ready-to-eat salads are wrapped in such a way that they’ll be ready to eat whenever you’re good & ready to eat that ready-to-eat salad!

AUTHENTIC PUREBLOOD WAGYU BEEF... (With very high score marbling)
If you’re a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to meat, you might like to have a look in the Gourmet Butcher Counter next time you visit the Farmers Market...
We’ve some incredibly high quality, high scoring, and beautifully marbled wagyu beef available at the moment!
You can choose from various cuts including wagyu striploin, wagyu rump steak and some particularly impressive wagyu beef tomahawks (as pictured).
KNOW YOUR WAGYU BEEF? Wagyu is renowned for its marbling in the form of intramuscular fat (IMF) which appears as fine flecks within the muscle. The presence of marbling has a very positive effect on the eating quality of beef in terms of tenderness, juiciness and flavour, giving Wagyu an exceptional eating experience.
NOTE: Our Wagyu beef is pureblood authentic Wagyu with very high marbling scores which eats exceptionally - ask our friendly onsite butchers for tips on how to cook for the best results!
MATURED FRENCH COMTE CHEESES... (Choose from 6 or 12 month aged)
Here’s one for the international cheese lovers of Bunbury and beyond... introducing our Comte cheeses:
Did you know that Comte is the most popular French raw cow's milk cheese which, depending on it's age, can range from a smooth supple texture to a firmer, drier and grainy texture. The season in which the milk comes from also influences the aromas, colour and taste.
Here are some tasting notes from our resident cheese expert - Terri from the cheese tasting counter:
“Our 6 month comte is creamier and softer with fruitier undertones than our 12 month comte which has developed a slightly firmer texture and crust.”
“You may taste a range of flavours from slightly fruity, buttery, rich and nutty to smoky & spicy. A variation in flavours and aromas is a part of the appeal of this famous Jura Mountain cheese.”
“Comte is a good choice if you’re looking to add class to a cheeseboard or you’d like sophisticated savoury in your cooking cheese.”
P.s. We’re flying French cheeses out of Paris ourselves to bring you a selection of the country’s finest cheeses - short of going overseas yourself, this is about as fresh as it gets! 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
