Since its inception the Southern Forests Food Council has supported events throughout the region and also participated in events outside the region, with the aim of raising awareness for the genuine fresh local produce, grown by genuine down to earth locals.


The region's key food events include;

Manjimup Farmers Market,

Pinot Picnic,

Truffle Kerfuffle and

Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival.



Local produce for local people. Provincial and seasonal. Direct from the paddock to your plate. That's what the Manjimup Farmers Market's are about.​ The market was started by a group of dedicated farmers who not only wanted to showcase the variety and abundance of produce grown in the area, they wanted to showcase to local people what fresh food was really all about.​​

Now held every Saturday, the Manjimup Farmers Market has a wide range of absolutely fresh fruit and vegetables grown right here in the region. Pick up some delectable jams, oils and desserts as well. Food simply doesn't come any fresher than this.
