Slow Food Earth Market Maitland is one of over 60 Earth Markets Worldwide and is the first of its kind in Australia. The Market is organised by Slow Food Hunter Valley members and community volunteers with support from the Maitland City Council.

Slow Food Earth Market Maitland will open with 12 farmers, plus seasonal backyard growers who’ll participate when their produce is available. The market will operate at The Levee Shared Zone on the first and third Thursday of each month between 2.00pm and 7.00pm during Summer, Autumn and Spring with adjusted hours of 2.00pm to 6.00pm for Winter trading.

The Earth Market project was chosen so the Slow Food values of good, clean and fair could be applied to the farmers and the produce in the market. The participants at the Earth Market guarantee that their produce is:

  • good – meaning fresh and seasonal
  • clean – made from local crops, free of GMOs and environmentally sustainable
  • fair – offering accessible prices to the consumer and fair compensation and conditions for the producers.

Consumers will see a poster at each stall with the names of the farmer, their farm, the location and a brief story of how they bring food to the market.
