Farmers Markets are not about how long it takes to walk them or the number of stalls. The farmers market in Palmyra, Western Australia, is small compared to others but it has the main requirement for being successful, a community vibe.
I am not a local to the area so when I visited I took a moment to observe the smiles as people welcomed the regulars but also made me feel like I was one too. There is good food, a play area for children and even a special area for our furry friends. Of course there are the essential stalls providing arts and crafts, fresh produce, organic meat and local interest information.
Some details from their website and then some photos :).
