Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the best markets we've come across in Queensland. Very well laid out, including lots of tables and chairs for those eating or drinking coffee - something many market organisers forget. Some quality locally-made products as well as lots of produce and things to consume on the spot. On a lovely sunny day yesterday there were lots of smiling people and happy dogs.

Located under the windmills of the Cobb & Co Museum, the market offers fantastic fresh produce, good coffee and breakfast options and some interesting products. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Toowoomba on a Saturday morning.

If the very best produce, coffee, donuts, artisan baking, meats and craft is what you seek, then this is the place to be on a Saturday morning!

We called in for a look and left carrying plenty of goods, some of which were unique. This is a fairly original farmers market with produce from around the Toowoomba area. A bit disappointed when told how sweet the tomatoes were and when I got them home they were quite sour. Overall though, it is worth a regular visit if you live there or for visitors travelling through with easy access to the outstanding Queens Gardon nearly.

Quality of fresh food at the market is superb, when at its peak. Over summer has been quieter due to less fresh locally grown produce available. Can not wait for market to pick up again in the new year. Especially the Spring Lake organic produce which is impossible to find such great quality elsewhere in Toowoomba. Market has a lovely, welcoming feel with all the marketeers genuinely pleased to see you. Must mention the Gluten Free donuts too - a real treat, even better than non GF varieties :)

Toowoomba Farmers Market are so appealing on a sunny day with the chance to enjoy the beautiful shade trees and ease of car parking..at no cost. Showcasing some of the best produce from the area as well as home made local treats. A place to stop, have a coffee, meet friends and slow the pace of life down and take home some quality goods.

Love this farmers market. The growers are lovely with great quality produce which is so fresh it lasts for weeks - even the lettuce I buy! The location is divine under the trees and often with a breeze passing through. A real delight.

Plenty of paid parking across the street, $3.40 for 2 hours. Great selection or local produce ranging from plants, fruit, vegetables, meat, freshly cooked ethnic foods and arts & craft. Will visit again.

What stood out for me about Toowoomba Farmers’ Market is that it felt very well curated. Someone with a good eye for aesthetic appeal had laid out their key stalls at the foot of the windmills in the Cobb & Co. Museum grounds.

The market organisers’ own stall offers up wildflowers, Paddock to Potager Apple and Porketta Burgers ($7), and flavoursome Lamb Kofta ($4/each) on sticks. Prices here – as you can see – are way lower than Sydney.

Appropriately the museum celebrates horse-drawn vehicles and heritage trades, and so does the market, with a good amount of old-fashioned pickling going on. From Brandis Home Grown we picked up a Curried Cucumber Pickle ($8/520g) full of yellow mustard seeds, and so tasty it inspired us to recreate our own version when we returned home. These products are made in a small town called Douglas, about twenty clicks from Toowoomba. These makers - Howard and Eileen Brandis - are dab hands with strong flavours. Using a catalogue of ingredients like allspice, turmeric, pimento, cloves and cayenne pepper, they make a great Green Tomato Pickle ($8/520g), and an even better Flaming Hot Chilli Sauce ($8/250g). Despite the name, the chilli sauce is a triumph of bright flavour over bald, searing heat. Their pickled vegetables stay wonderfully crisp – perhaps a testament to the quality local produce that they use; much of which is grown in the neighbouring Lockyer Valley and at Kulpi.

As we wind our way down the side of Campbell Street – one of Toowoomba’s famous green camphor laurel avenues – we’re encouraged to smell the dirt of the Lockyer Valley on the organic and chemically-free offerings. This flat flood plain that you probably drove through on your way to Toowoomba from Brisbane, is referred to as ‘Australia’s Salad Bowl’ for good reason. The farmers at this market help to show that the Lockyer Valley is used to grow a wide range of things.

Another standout stall selling bonafide Queensland products is the Peanut Van. We’re loving their Cold-Pressed Virgin Peanut Oil ($5.95/375ml) made from peanuts grown in Kingaroy - the 'Peanut Capital' of Queensland. After cooking with this high flash-point 'good fats' oil at home, I’m wishing I bought more of it, and delved deeper into their range of products, which include peanut brittle and peanut butter. Don't just take my word for it, they've got the Spanish bull - Miguel Maestre's - stamp of approval too, with his face adorning the Toowoomba stall.

With sun-warmed organic Mulberries ($4) staining my lips and fingers purple, I did the rest of the market in a haze of childhood memory, thinking about what food used to taste like before the price war between supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths ruined it. The buzzwords of this boutique collection of stalls are definitely organic and chemical free. There are also the best selection of stalls from meat producers I’ve seen in a while, all touting the word ‘happy’ - Toowoomba is the gateway to the Darling Downs after all.

As Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio explained to me, what’s great about Toowoomba is that you don’t have to drive to the big smoke (Brisbane) to get what you need. Looking around at this fortnightly market, I can see he’s correct – they’ve got everything you need right here.
