Established in 2020, Mayi Market is a not-for-profit Indigenous enterprise delivering quality, fresh food to remote Cape York communities at fair prices. We currently make fortnightly deliveries to Coen, Hope Vale, Wujal Wujal, Mossman Gorge and, most recently, Aurukun.
We believe access to affordable, nutritious food is key to improving the health and wellbeing of our communities – healthy meal, healthy mob.
Powered by the Cape York Pama Futures Agenda, Mayi Market is taking control of our food network.

Why it Matters
Remote Cape York communities are paying up to triple the price for food when compared to regional communities, such as Cairns.
Apunipima Cape York Health Council reports diabetes in children as young as five years of age, and have growing concerns about under-nutrition and early obesity.
It is clear that food insecurity and the exorbitant cost of quality fresh food is contributing to a high rate of chronic disease in our communities.
What we are Doing
Using our very own refrigerated Mayi Market truck, we currently deliver food boxes to community centres in Aurukun, Coen, Hope Vale, Wujal Wujal and Mossman Gorge every fortnight.
Mayi Market encourages pre-orders online with local O-Hub support and customers can use Centrepay to ensure fresh food is prioritised in their budget.
We support local Indigenous employment and work closely with producers and distributors to keep prices as low as possible.
Mayi Market has seen great success since its launch and will continue to expand to more Cape York communities.
