What's On...

Program of events covering our packed two weeks as Shepp Square.

Bar & Bites — it's a pop-up bar!

Where apples and pears grow in abundance, Greater Shepparton is where the best ciders are made.

Enjoy a cold glass of Cheeky Cider, Cherry Cheeky, Foxy Dabinettor and even a cider slushy.

Or if a glass or two of red, a viognier, sparkling or chardonnay is more your style, Tallis and Longleat Wines will be on site to serve you.

Both Furphy and Dainton Beers have their origins in Greater Shepparton and they will be available too.

These boutique wines and ciders will be complemented by tapas, nibbles and bites created from the finest fresh Greater Shepparton produce.

Whether it’s a bite to eat for lunch, a lazy afternoon, drinks after work or an evening out, make the most of the Australia’s Foodbowl while it’s in town.

Market Square

Fruit straight from the tree straight to you, it doesn’t get any fresher.

Apples, pears, peaches, strawberries and nectarines will be on sale direct to the public for two weeks. But it might be a chocolate covered apple, a SPC snack pack, chocolate coated pomegranate arils or a chutney or relish you’re craving; it’s all on sale at the Shepp Square Farmers Market.
