At the far end of Raglan Street every Sunday you can visit the Daylesford Sunday Market. A very, very popular event for both locals and visitors so don’t miss this on your next visit. The best description of the market is eclectic or in days gone past the term would be trash and treasure. From what I have experienced the line between trash and treasure is very thin.
You get a great mix here of homemade foods including jams, cakes, and biscuits, fresh produce including organic, soaps, incense, crystals, etc. There is usually a jam donut and coffee available as well as the chip vendor. What draws a lot of attention is the pre-loved (sometimes thrown out) goods from old tools, to books, tapes and videos, right through to furniture and clothes. If you are looking for something hard to find it just might be here.
There is plenty of parking on offer but this fills very early on so you park in the main street or a side street back towards town. If you have children crossing the road is quite hazardous so consider parking further away and take a stroll. The Daylesford Sunday Market is an open market so wear comfortable shoes and take an umbrella if there is a threat of rain.
It is quite an attractive market with the main stretch being under the large deciduous trees that run the distance to the train station. This is mostly produce including fresh vegetables and free range eggs although various stalls line the front when they are busy.
During busy times of year (school holidays, public holidays, etc) if the weather allows you can see buskers, psychics and seated massage therapists at work.
