Melbourne Organic Food

I currently live in Melbourne, and was looking at where I can purchase Locally-Grown, In-Season, Organic Fruit & Vegetables.

Since I’ve created my own list, I thought I’d post it here to share with anyone else who lives in this area.

Important: If the heading is in “BOLD” type, then I have double-checked the dates/times of the markets, and the information is accurate as of today, 15th, June, 2013.

If the heading is not yet bolded, the information could be ‘out-dated’ – I intend to double-check them all, but in the meantime please check yourself by calling their phone number or doing your own search online to find out if the market is still available.
