In a society where fancy farmers markets come and go, this market has stood the test of time. After 35 years of trade, and STILL pulling in the crowds EVERY Sat and Sun, plus the biggest market of its kind in Victoria, this is a westie 'must visit'.
Please note! You won't find any beetroot relish or sourdough bread here, but you will find cheap veggies, plants, plenty of tracksuit pant options and hot jam donuts that you'll have to queue up for (they are that good). In fact, you will find so much random stuff that it is lots of fun to sift through - stuff that you never even knew you needed!
The place is situated in the old Village Drive In and you can still see the skeletons of its past life in the abandoned kiosk and the old lake (which is full of bird life) that has seen better days.
Mamma loves the character of this place, a reminder of what markets used to be like, full of character and plenty of BARGAINS! .
Mamma's special mention: Need a lovely feed after all that? Head to Cheeky Chewies with the fam!
