Yering Station in the Yarra Valley is arguably the most stunning location to host a farmers market anywhere in Victoria.
Whilst this market is one of Victoria's original and oldest farmer's markets, with its inception in 1999, this was the first time I ventured through the front gates of Yering Station...in one word "WOW!"
From the manicured lawns, landscaped gardens, water feature, architecturally designed restaurant that overlooks the valley and the sculptures dotted throughout grounds, it really is a pretty spectacular place to visit!
The Melbourne Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Melbourne mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
The market itself is rather small with only around 30 stalls in total, but the quality and variety of the produce for sale was very good. We found fresh berries, free range eggs, an impressive selection of jams, preserves and sauces, organic bread, honey, olives, paella, juices, olive oils, sweet treats, chocolates, fresh flowers, coffee, pasta, meats and more!
For the kids there was a jumping castle, face painting and a craft/painting activity that was available for a cost on the day that we visited.
The majority of the market stalls were set up inside the historic barn, making it perfect for all weather conditions!
The Yering Station farmers market is held on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 9am-2pm. Entry and car parking is free.
One of the world’s most famous stories is being brought to life this summer by Playhouse Pantomimes! Join them on a magical journey through a mystical world in their mesmerising current production of 'Alice in Wonderland.'
Dining out with the kids is not always easy, but it can be even harder trying to find family-friendly options when you are vegetarian, vegan, paleo or gluten free. If you can relate to this, make Plant Based Mum your go-to blog.
