Harvest Launceston Community Farmers Market has been named the best farmers’ market in the country at a Melbourne awards night.

The market received the kudos at the ABC delicious. awards, announced on Monday night.

It’s the second time the market has won the award, since it began in 2012.

In handing over the title to Harvest, award judges highlighted the market’s commitment to good governance and management.

In a statement, market’s organisation board said it was humbled every week by the loyalty, commitment and support of the community and market volunteers.
