With the support of the community, our volunteer group have established, since 2016, a seasonal gathering space to connect Spryfield and our neighbours to locally grown food and products. The bi-weekly market offers a convenient place to purchase fresh farm produce, meat, eggs, locally baked goods, prepared food and crafted items. This gathering is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a coffee, be entertained by local musician and shop local. Meet an old friends or make new ones. You will be thrilled to take part in this vibrant community.

Their mission is to help these individuals until they are self-sustaining.
