We all love eating fresh and and seasonally - it just tastes better. Meeting the farmers, growers and makers is both fun and rewarding. Smell the fresh air and find yourself in the red soils of the Upper Yarra that potatoes have grown in for decades, feel the soft loam soils underfoot as you forage through the U-Pick orchards and taste the difference as you indulge in your bounty at days end. Seeking out the juiciest peach, the sweetest cherry and the crunchiest apple throughout the food bowl that is the Yarra Valley is a treat you can never get enough of.
Visit the Lilydale Farmers Produce Market for an authentic countryside experience. As you browse through the marketplace, you will see an array of quaint shops, boutique stores, craft stalls and a number of fresh produce stores where the local farmers bring their produce to sell at wholesale prices.
