A MEETING on Wednesday morning decided to cancel this Saturday's Bathurst Farmers' Market due to the latest COVID concerns in the Central West.
The monthly market has a number of stallholders that come from the Blayney, Cabonne and Orange local government areas, market spokesman Paul Haysom said.
Those three local government areas entered a seven-day lockdown on Tuesday night after a positive test emerged in Blayney.
"When we looked at it overall, there was a general reluctance even from stallholders in Bathurst to hold the market," Mr Haysom said.

"We apologise to all the people who look forward to the market and we will hopefully be back at the end of August," he said.
The Bathurst Farmers' Market, held on the fourth Saturday of the month at the Bathurst Showground, offers fresh produce for sale as well as coffee and hot food.
Proceeds from the gold coin donation to get in the gate go to Lions Club of Bathurst projects.
