Abstract

Paper presented at New Zealand Tourism and Hospitality Research Conference (2006 : Dunedin, N.Z.) While farmers’ markets are increasingly being used as a part of tourism strategies and destination promotional literature, they have received little attention from the tourism discipline. This paper addresses this gap by examining farmers’ markets within the context of special events. The paper provides an introduction to farmers’ markets and an indication of their growth globally, followed by an examination of the literature on them. A case study of the Airey’s Inlet Farmers’ Market, on the Great Ocean Road Victoria, is used to explore the relationship between farmers’ markets, tourism and slow food.
