THE STORY OF JAN POWERS FARMERS MARKETS:

Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods. The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets. Jan singularly pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food……..  Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, a market on Sundays in Mitchelton, and a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place that attracts some 5,000 city workers and residents!

Delivering on Jan’s vision, there’s more than just fresh produce at the Jan Power Farmers Markets – each is a place to connect with farmers. With a feel good, grass roots experience with a real sense of community on offer, Jan Powers Farmers Market is Brisbane’s go-to for fresh farm produce, flowers, breads, artisan products, meat, fish, poultry, plants, organics, street food and more. “Markets were the heart and soul of cities of old,” said Sammy Power who now holds the organisational reins of the markets. “They were where families connected, where the city met and mingled, argued and loved; and the farmers markets are the modem day incarnation of this, therefore, they are at the heart and soul of Brisbane.”
