Local produce

Gather regional produce for a picnic lunch to beat them all at the farms of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, ripe for the picking of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, poultry and decadent ice creams.

Follow the trail
Criss-cross the region on the Yarra Valley Food Trail and stop at the sign-posted gastronomic hotspots to sample, savour, or pick your own. Call in at orchards, farm gates and roadside stalls to buy local produce directly from the grower.

Tuck into a tempting array of specialty seasonal produce introduced to the region from generations of immigrant settlers, including pasta, cheese, chilli, capsicum, persimmons, smoked fish, salmon, and of course, fine wine.

Celebrating 'slow food'
Dine at welcoming farm cafés and regional restaurants that produce gourmet sensations with the region's bounty, matching it all to the cool-climate wines for which the region is famous.

Wander among the stalls laden with fresh produce and homemade delicacies at the monthly Yarra Valley Regional Farmers' Market, or at the Hurstbridge Farmers' Market. Chat with the makers and get informed about the provenance of your food.
