Sydney welcomes a new farm fresh market to its inner city area with the launch of the Erskineville Farmers Market — which goes by the mantra 'shop local, eat local,  buy local'. It'll take over the front grounds of Erskineville Public School, starting on December 1 and proceeding every Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

With a focus on sustainability and environmentalism, the market will be a plastic-free zone, with only keep cups allowed, too. For opening day, Boomerang Bags will be selling reusable grocery bags — which you can snag for a gold coin donation.

Artisan food makers and high-quality produce will, of course, be front-and-centre. Expect stalls from Pocket City Farm, Brickfields Bakery, Kristen Allen Cheese, T Totaler and Tonicka Kombucha, plus hot food stalls like vegan Vietnamese from Redfern's Nourishing Corner, toasties from Mister Toast and vegan crepes from Frothin Crepes, to name just a few.

Each week will also feature local musicians, DIY workshops and talks on sustainability. After December 22, the market will take a break for two weeks, then resume weekly trading from January 12.
