Public Markets


Public markets in Victoria add colour and flavour to our local economy, attracting residents and visitors from April through October each year. There's even a winter market from November to April. Public markets provide artisans and local growers opportunities to promote and sell produce and handcrafted goods in a vibrant atmosphere.
