As good as ever, and probably as big as ever too. Market never disappoints. Its big enough to make it a worthy day trip from Melbourne which takes about 90 mins drive. All the usual stalls there... but the food excels (fresh rosti, + veggie gozleme!!) And some really good artists work there.

We were lucky enough to be around for the February market and made aware of it by our accommodation. It has to be one of the best such events that we have attended, with a huge array of different stalls. We enjoyed a great flat white coffee and purchased a jar of eucalyptus honey to take home with us. Wish... More

We visited the Saturday market today and it took us by surprise! There were a lot of different stalls with something to tickle everyone's fancy. The parking is plentiful with volunteers accepting $4 to guide you in the right place to find a spot. ATM's are available for a $3.50 surcharge.

What a huge and varied market! We expected to go for an hour or so but we stayed the whole morning and did quite a bit of our Christmas shopping.

Plug No. 184 Arthurs Seat Rd [Red Hill Recreation Reserve] into your sat nav to find the right location. We arrived at 9.45am Saturday (closes 1pm!) and there were already hundreds of cars parked around the ground - use the $4 Lions car parking service to park on an adjacent paddock with HEAPS of space.

This is a large country market with more of an emphasis on arts and crafts. Second-most are stalls selling food items (sauces, cheeses, cookies, baked goods, etc). If you're hungry, you can also grab a bite to eat at several vendors. Although there were stalls selling fresh fruits and veggies, these were only a small percentage of the whole market.

We had not been to this market for many years and decided to visit the December market for Xmas presents. Word of advice - get there early and avoid the crowds. Hats off to the Lions Club and their volunteers who oversee the parking and $4 to a worthy cause. Stalls are great and we really liked the fact that... More

Even on a windy day this market had something for everyone. We picked up some Bromeliads on bark; really different! Lots of food options, plenty of crafts on display and enough sugar sweet foods to keep the local dentist in a job. Do it! $4 car park, $10 for food the rest on local produce.
