New branding for the Farmers Market.

New Branding Farmers Market

The Farmers Market offers a consumer market platform where they have the opportunity to buy local fresh produce direct from the local farmer, fisherman and food producers.

We are continuously working to further improve and strengthen the Farmers Market. With the launch of the branding, we are seeing a new logo and more organisation at our Farmers Markets, where sellers will now be in uniform, which will be giving the Farmers Market an identity to be able to promote it on an international scale.

At the Farmers Market we find a vast selection of fresh local food products including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish as well as artisanal products amongst others.
