Stock up, frock up and fossick for treasures old and new at weekend markets throughout the Goldfields. Skip from town to town and find everything from organic vegies and gourmet goodies to arts and crafts, vintage clothes, books and jewellery.

Market fresh

The Goldfields is home to a stunning and varied harvest, ranging from cool climate and high altitude produce to warm Mediterranean influences. Discover fresh fruit, organic vegetables and specialty cheeses, cakes and biscuits. And while you're there, be sure to pick up some of the locally pressed olive oil or organic honey for the pantry.

Clothes and crafts

Once you've stocked up on vegies, it's time to see what else is on offer, and the Goldfields doesn't disappoint. Find beautiful vintage items and handmade jewellery, clothes, furniture, giftware and handmade arts and crafts. Be sure to catch the Castlemaine Artists Market and the Maldon Craft Market where you'll find quality works produced by the region's renowned artists and artisans.

All week long

Travelling across the Goldfields during the week and keen to have a fossick around? You'll find plenty of vintage treasures, clothes, furniture and kitschy delights at the Mill Markets in Ballarat and at Castlemaine Vintage Bazaar – both open 7 days a week.
