Riddells Creek Farmers' Market
The Riddells Creek Farmers Market (RCFM) is an accredited Farmers' Market operating from the Riddell Primary School from 9-1 on the 3rd Saturday of the month Jan-Nov and as a twilight market on the 2nd Friday each Dec.
Sustainability is a very important aspect of the market and we encourage you to bring your own shopping bags as RCFM is plastic bag free. If you forget your shopping bags reusable calico bags are available to purchase for only $4.

After some scrumptious sourdough? Or perhaps some succulent fresh meats? Vegetables that are so fresh they still have some soil clinging to them? Would you like to purchase food that has not travelled hundreds of kilometers? Then our fabulous stall-holders have you covered! We have a wide range of seasonal, fresh, local produce available.

Intensive Beginners Jewellery Making Course
This intensive beginners jewellery making course is held over two-full-days on a weekend. You’ll work at your own pace while learning the fundamentals of jewellery making.  There’s no additional costs and no need to pay extra to work in silver, it’s all included. And rather than attending three hour classes week-after-week, you'll learn it all in one weekend. Everyone will be making different pieces of jewellery, so you'll be able to see how lots of different pieces are made. Classes are held around a big jewellers bench, so you'll have your own space, but will also be able to see what everyone else is working on. It's great fun and a really supportive environment in which to learn. This course is 15 hours in total and limited to six people. Both days, we eat lunch at one of the many amazing local cafés. This is included in your course fee. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available.
