Overview

Markets

Stock up, frock up and fossick at markets throughout the Goldfields. Skip from town to town for organic vegies and gourmet goodies, arts and crafts, vintage clothes, books, jewellery and more.

Market fresh

The Goldfields is home to a varied harvest, from cool climate and high-altitude produce to warm Mediterranean influences. Discover fresh fruit, organic vegetables and specialty cheeses, cakes and biscuits, and pick up some of the locally pressed olive oil or organic honey for the pantry.

Clothes and crafts

All stocked up on vegies? You'll also find vintage items and handmade jewellery, clothes, furniture, giftware and handmade arts and crafts. Be sure to catch the Castlemaine Artists Market and the Maldon 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.
