Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Read about this through our local accommodation and decided to check it out.

Parking was hard to come by, such was the popularity of the market. We fluked one close by and started looking around.

The market itself seemed to be set up in areas. One area was your typical flea market with lots of used and second hand items. There was an area for new items. And the final area was food stalls/trucks.

All in all I’m glad we had a look but it’s probably not something I’d return to.

The Markets were very busy and a bit difficult for parking in and around the market, partially due to wet conditions.
Nice stroll around the markets with a decent variety of stalls and some good food options.

Ok, I generally get dragged to markets by my wife which ends up with me standing around while she visits every stall under the sun. This happened again but the Daylesford market has a lot of variety for old grumpy blokes. There is a bloke that sells biltong, a chili maker, and a few places that sell wine, spirits, and so on. There is something for everyone with the train station, several pretty good food stalls, and a fair few trash and treasure types. I'd recommend the Gordons hat shop in particular that sells some great quality hats. Well, if that doesnt work there is a good shop 5 minutes away that does hot chocolate that is really good and you can wait there...

Sadly no where near as good as it used to be. Mostly second hand stalls and very little quality handmade crafts and garden sculptures that used to be there…. disappointed

Lovely market with many regular stall holders where there is something for everyone. Only had some bad buys where we were charged too much but use your discretion.

Daylesford, Victoria, for its rich geological past (9 extinct volcanos with Wombat Hill– the tallest in Vic.), heritage (part of goldmining era) and mineral springs is a real tourists Mecca. Also, it runs one of the best in Victoria Sunday Market. We visited it 9th of May.

The late autumn chill made the crowd of locals (often walking their dogs in unique novelties and attire) and visitors from both Victoria and interstate gathering sluggishly. However, by midday it formed a river flowing among the stalls in a rain of small, golden leaves falling from majestic elms, contrasting with the dark-blue cedars from the hills close by. Magic and unique to the Autumn Daylesford scenery.
Mothers and grandmothers holding Chrysanthemums and other flowers, fathers and grandfathers -with varieties of organically grown vegies, cacti and bric-a-brac stuff, headed towards the food stalls to line up and then to nearby tables to munch their lunches at the sounds of a 4-men-strong music band.

Market Manager, Mr Raoul, is always very busy, but especially so on important days such as Mother’s Day.

My Wife, (mom and grandma as well) got black honey (also known as honeydew honey) rich in flavour and low in sugar, black garlic (odorless but with impressive health benefits) and stunning French, Masque De Provence pumpkin. I got Milk-cup fungi (Lactarius rufus) a botanical relative of magic mushrooms and by their redness and taste, when BBQ-ed, similar to shrimps.

It was really a well celebrated Mother’s Day.

We timed our visit to Daylesford to coincide with the Sunday market, expecting a nice range of arts, antiques, food and drinks. But what was on offer was a small, mediocre market which was less interesting than most Victorian country markets. Certainly not a standalone destination.
