The Mobile Market
OzHarvest’s Mobile Market focuses on supplying fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs direct to the community with regular scheduled public markets in areas of high recovery need. Our team works hand in hand with local organisations to create welcoming community connection spaces. Please come along if you are in need of food assistance. You will be greeted by OzHarvest Ambassadors who will put together a bag with the items you request. There is a limit of one bag per household.
The OzHarvest Mobile Market will continue to deliver nourishing food to regional communities in 2022 thanks to the support of cold storage company Chill.
* Please note: the frequency of our markets will now be fortnightly as shown in the schedule below. We apologise for the inconvenience and continue to work with our networks to secure more support.
- 11:30am – 12:30pm: Woodburn Market: The Old Bowlo Hub, corner of Cedar St and Richmond St.

Meet some of our OMM family
It has been absolutely wonderful to see the friendly faces from OzHarvest and regularly have a community gathering where each and every member would have a chat, catch up, share stories and be 100% grateful to be receiving support in the form of fresh fruit and vegetables.
John visits properties between Wyndham and Cathcart with OzHarvest fruit and veggies in hand. His visits regularly reconnect him to people and has been the catalyst for a support network for people living with trauma, despite the long distances. Each delivery is a cuppa and a conversation that they all look forward to.
Your visits have made a big difference. There have been times when people have said that the timing has been brilliant as they were running out of food and didn’t have any money until the next week. So it has literally meant if they had food on the table or not.

If we have run into trouble on the road and unfortunately need to reschedule the market for your town, then we will notify the relevant community leaders.

We ask that a maximum of two people per household come to the market site to avoid overcrowding. Weather permitting, our markets are held outdoors to ensure fresh airflow. Please keep distanced 1.5m from the tables and other people, and not touch the produce. Our team will pack the fresh produce in to bags as they serve each attendee. In times of government restrictions, our team will be wearing masks and gloves.
