Bendigo Farmers Market this Saturday 9am-1pm

Join us at our Monthly Market every 2nd Saturday of the month from 9am - 1pm at the Bendigo Pony Club.

We're more than a market, we are a community! BCFM unites people to come together around food. Experience the Farmers Market in Australia's only UNESCO City of Gastronomy. Shop with our chefs and farmers. Meet our family. Be part of our heritage. Make the market part of your community connection.

Plus the food you buy today, feeds our community tomorrow. Supporting local not only keeps our connection to the rural way of life, but it ensures its future. The market keeps our farmers in business, fosters our growth as a community and keeps money in our local economy (and your pocket!).

It nurtures a healthy and vibrant community; one that is sustainable, intentional and engaged.

So join us each week and make a difference to yourselves, your family, and your community!

Awaken Bendigo

Every night over the period of 26 June 2021 - 17 July 2021, Bendigo's beautiful Rosalind Park will transform with a series of vibrant installations that engage and immerse visitors in an unforgettable sensory experience. 

Each installation captures Bendigo’s stories of the city and its rich history, through a radiant display of light, colour and sound in a spectacular fashion.

At Rosalind Park Piazza you will find a illuminated Acknowledgement of Country, a beacon of light that represents the traditional custodians of the land, the Dja Dja Wurrung People.

Continuing into the park, you will find illuminated representations of all things Bendigo, including our Horticultural heritage, Chinese heritage, vibrant art history, famous tulips, and even a "River of Gold".

At each 13 key stops, you will be invited to read about the magnificent light displays and the story behind how they relate to Bendigo.
