Local produce

Taste food at its freshest in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, either at restaurants celebrating the best local produce, or at farm gates selling their wares.

A passion for food
Discover a passion for food in the region, home to orchardists, beekeepers, winemakers and farmers. Create your own dishes back at home or in self-contained accommodation, or let top chefs serve you scrumptious local meals.

Seasonal delights
Visit throughout the year for seasonal delights. In spring it's lamb; in summer, morello cherries. Autumn is forest mushroom season, while root vegetables appear in winter.

Spend your weekends in the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges region's regular farmers markets, with Lancefield, Woodend, Riddells Creek, and Kyneton alternating Saturdays.

Farm gates and wineries
Explore country roads and fill your boot at farm gates. Stop at tucked-away cellar doors and sip excellent sparkling and cool-climate wines.

Load up on organic produce at Kangaroo Hills or Captains Creek organic farms. Grab cured meats from Istra Smallgoods, and get game and rare breed meats from Daylesford's Spa Venison or direct from the farms. You can even get fresh Murray cod, trout and yabbies, or fish for your own at Tuki Trout Farm.

Providence at provedores
Pick up olive oil, truffles, cheeses and artisan breads at farmers' markets or provedores including Woodend's Maloa House, Cliffy's Emporium in Daylesford, Kyneton's Monsieur Pierre and Trentham's Colliban Food Store.
