The very best of Tassie, every Saturday
Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market – or Harvest to locals – is a Launceston icon. Since 2012, Harvest has been the focal point for the community, showcasing the very best of local primary produce and handmade food that is truly paddock-to-plate. Sold to you by the growers and makers themselves, every Saturday rain hail or shine.
Besides the amazing produce and people, there is always something extra going on at Harvest. We love to share our space, collaborate and support other community groups doing amazing things.

Wailing as you’ve never known it. The Stranded Wailers are a pub choir that revives and shares the sea shanties of old. Truly a moving experience to join in on. The power of singing together with others is well known. We’re over the moon to harbour the good ship Stranded Wailers in 2023.
Over 70 Local Businesses
Harvest Market is the Saturday home of over 70 local businesses that include organic primary producers, value-adders, chefs, producers, butchers and bakers. But no candlestick makers. You can’t eat a candle, so you can’t sell them at Harvest. Harvest has hosted 135 local businesses since 2012, with many going on to become local icons.
Harvest Market is a not-for-profit community organisation, run almost entirely by volunteers. From the board to the ground and everywhere in between, these people turn out for for their community because they love it. Pure and Simple.
Since 2012 Harvest market has racked up some pretty impressive numbers. These are just a few that we’re particularly proud of.
