The Dandenongs is home to a number unique markets, not just farmers markets but markets promoting sustainable and healthy living.
Some markets, such as the Gembrook Market and the Kallista Market, have young farm and domestic animals, cottage crafts and propagated horticulture for all to enjoy.
The Upper Ferntree Gully Market is held in the Upper Ferntree Gully Railway car park and sells a huge selection of products from rugs and jewellery to dried fruit, nuts and even has vans selling Japanese food, ice cream and much more. Located in idyllic settings, these markets are a throwback to the markets of old, when quality and uniqueness was at a premium, the seller was the producer and you could be sure you were getting nothing but the best.
