Yarra Valley - Yering Station Farmers Market - Yarra Valley Dairy

From Yering Stations website:
Yarra Valley Farmers' Market - every 3rd Sunday of the Month

Founded over 9 years ago the Yarra Valley Regional Farmers' Market is the longest running market in Victoria. Held on the third Sunday of each month in the Historic Barn, the Farmers' Market features produce made and grown by some of the regions' best producers.

Speak to the producer whilst purchasing fresh seasonal fruit, juices and vegetables, locally baked bread, biscuits, pies and fudge, jams and preserves, cheeses, coffee, pasta, locally grown flowers, olives, eggs, honey, meat and much more.

Open 9.00am- 2.00pm

Sunday my mum and my aunts headed out to Yarra Valley to check out the farmers market... It is a beaqutiful drive out into Yarra Valley and due to some recent rain it was all so green, which is a nice change! The farmers market was great, in a big shed, full to the brim with people, selling and buying... Loads of tastings, some great produce on offer, I bought all of my veggies for the week and some amazing raspberry jam, home made yo yos and honeycomb...

On the way home we droped into the Yarra Valley Dairy which was an interesting experience, it smelt like the Rpyal Melbourne Show, cow and goat city! The cheeses on offer looked good but were really pricey, so I bought Mark some cheese... Most of the produce was available from the farmers market at a better price but there was the most amazing apple juice available, it was like drinking fresh apples, mmmm...

All in all a great day, good to get away from the city, do something different and I would love to go back next month...
