Visit the Murray region's famous markets and get your fill of farm fresh fruit and vegetables, gourmet goodies and homemade sauces and pickles to rival your grandmother's. Crafts enthusiasts can also look forward to stalls offering handcrafted goods, art and clothing by local artisans.
To market, to market
The Murray region's farmers' markets are no longer a local secret. Time your visit to coincide with the many weekly markets and monthly markets in Mildura, Merbein, Rutherglen, Howlong and Wodonga. Grab a hearty breakfast and meet the growers at the beautiful Sunraysia Farmers Market, located on the banks of the Murray River beneath majestic old red gums.
Sample local delicacies like marinated olives, pickled asparagus, blood orange and lime marmalade. Munch on spicy pistachios, pink Murray salt and orange wedges dipped in chocolate, and discover why the region's producers are now some of most famous among inner-city foodies.
Take a memento of the Murray home with you from local arts and craft markets. The Little Me market in Wodonga specialises in an array of handmade and unique products as well as food, children's activities and live entertainment. Stop at Ruby's Cargo in Wentworth and peruse the many handmade soaps, preserves and sauces, accessories and more, all made by local artisans.
