Every Saturday morning from May to October the Carnarvon town centre comes alive with the Gascoyne Growers’ Markets. The market is run by the growers themselves, who often pick their produce just the night before the market to ensure you take home the freshest, tastiest produce in WA. A visit to the markets makes it very clear why the Gascoyne has the well-earned reputation of being the “food bowl of WA”, with a surprisingly diverse range of fruit and vegetables, lush tropical fruits, and meats on offer. Fill your basket then grab a coffee and some breakfast, listen to the buskers, or browse through the adjacent Arts and Craft market.
