Daylesford Sunday Market

At the far end of Raglan Street every Sunday you can visit the Daylesford Sunday Market. A very, very popular event for both locals and visitors so don’t miss this on your next visit. The best description of the market is eclectic or in days gone past the term would be trash and treasure. From what I have experienced the line between trash and treasure is very thin.
You get a great mix here of homemade foods including jams, cakes, and biscuits, fresh produce including organic, soaps, incense, crystals, etc. There is usually a jam donut and coffee available as well as the chip vendor. What draws a lot of attention is the pre-loved (sometimes thrown out) goods from old tools, to books, tapes and videos, right through to furniture and clothes. If you are looking for something hard to find it just might be here.
There is plenty of parking on offer but this fills very early on so you park in the main street or a side street back towards town. If you have children crossing the road is quite hazardous so consider parking further away and take a stroll. The Daylesford Sunday Market is an open market so wear comfortable shoes and take an umbrella if there is a threat of rain.
It is quite an attractive market with the main stretch being under the large deciduous trees that run the distance to the train station. This is mostly produce including fresh vegetables and free range eggs although various stalls line the front when they are busy.
During busy times of year (school holidays, public holidays, etc) if the weather allows you can see buskers, psychics and seated massage therapists at work.

16-18 Raglan St, Daylesford VIC 3460  Open on Sundays

The Fresh Market Warrnambool

If you are in the area and like markets then consider a drive down Pertobe Rd to The Fresh Market Warrnambool just over the road from the beach.  The Lake Pertobe Park is one of my favorite areas and to have a fresh market here makes for a fantastic outing.

I arrived near the end of the market (it was a Sunday you know) but only one stand had closed and another sold out so I don’t consider I missed out. The most popular stand appeared to be in the centre which was for Brightbird coffee.  If you have been to their cafe you can understand why although I suspect there was a few tired stallholders getting coffee as well.

Fresh air markets are always a lot of fun and the Fresh Market Warrnambool was no exception with plenty on offer including organic vegetables, baked goods, takeaway foods, health foods and sweets.  It can be very difficult to get this range of products so it is very helpful to know it is on every fortnight.

Parking was easy although very busy so during the peak you may need to take a stroll but then I can’t think of a better place for a walk.  There is often other events on at the same time (I ended up at the car expo first by mistake) and the lake and adventure park should not be missed.  

Whether a local or visitor I recommend putting it on your to do list.  On the first and third Sunday of the month.  Use their Facebook link to find out more.
