There are two must-visit markets in Castlemaine, both held on the same day each month. On the first Sunday of the month, Castlemaine Farmers Market offers fresh produce from the Mount Alexander Shire region and beyond. All the stallholders are the producers of what they sell, so you can get the whole story behind the fruits and vegetables on display. Bernie’s Fresh Spuds from Trentham, Boonderoo Walnuts from Redesdale, Holy Goat Cheese from Sutton Grange, Ballarat Mushrooms and Mount Alexander Organic Fruit Farm feature among the producers. There is also a range of smallgoods and fresh meats, olives, sourdough, seedlings and trees.

After your morning grocery shop, head to the Castlemaine Artists Market, where emerging and established artists, designers and craftspeople come together with live music and tempting foodstuffs. Ceramics, jewellery, homewares, art, woodwork and clothing are available across the 60 stalls, and there’s everything from organic coffee to waffles, gelato and Ethiopian curry to keep you well-fuelled.
