In line with the world's fastest growing food trend for seasonal fresh produce the inaugural Yarra Valley Regional Farmers Market was held in March 1998.
The concept has been an outstanding success for regional producers, for local consumers and for visitors, many of whom come to the Yarra Valley specifically to check out the region's growing reputation for exceptional and exciting food and wine.
Held all year round from 9am to 2pm in the historic barn at Yering Station on the third Sunday of each month, the market is a lively place with food tastings, lots of chatter, tantalising aromas and a visual feast of foods, flowers and flavours.
In addition to an extensive selection of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables you will find among the stalls mouth-watering biscuits, fresh-ground coffee and beans, unusual jams, preserves and sauces, honey, buffalo sausages, delectable chocolates, ice-cream, fruit vinegars, home-made pasta, locally baked bread, free-range eggs, a fantastic range of lavender products from hand-creams and bodysprays to furniture wax ... and, as they say ... much, much more!
Today it is Victoria's longest running monthly market which gives you the chance to buy direct from the grower, producer or maker, and, importantly, that it doesn't have "food miles" on it - that it wasn't made 10 weeks ago and that it hasn't come thousands of miles across the ocean.
Discover delicious surprises, goodies and gifts for all your family and friends under the one roof.
