This monthly market is not large but it is quality. It is managed by the Heathmont Lions Club, easy to find, free off-street parking and entry by gold coin donation.
Easy to find and free parking.
Donate and in you go.
All the stalls are arranged in a circle, with some within the circle, including undercover tables and chairs to rest or partake of refreshments available at many stalls.
Almost a tent city.
My favourite stall at any market is the coffee one. Sam's Coffee Car was zeroed into and an enjoyed coffee with a doughnut was consumed.
A popular site.
For tea lovers, Twig Teas offered a large range of teas, not in teabags, but hand blended loose leaf tea leaves to brew in your own teapot. Don't have a teapot? Then peruse the range offered in this delightful stall.
Tea for two or more.
What better location to sell their honey is honey from Heathmont honey, a locally based apiarist. I was very tempted to try one of their honey pops.
The sweetest stall at the market.
I spotted a familiar face in the form of Brendon, at Yarra Valley Gourmet Sausages. Brendon makes his sausages in his shop in Mooroolbark Terrace Shopping Centre, where I am a regular customer.
Not for your supermarket sausage.
Nature Lab skincare has a great range of natural hair and body care products.
Pamper your skin.
Baby Scent offer a boutique natural skincare range designed for the entire family.
More ways to pamper your skin.
Urban Reusables, reworked furniture was a stall with a difference. As the name implies furniture made from recycled items, mainly wood. A good initiative.
Re-use your wood.
Scented Lane specialises in scented soy candles.
Soy candles are environmentally friendly.
Robert was very proud of his range of homemade pasta, with many varieties on display.
Robert and his pasta.
Gourmet Morsels sell blended spices and dukkahs. Mr Google informed me that dukkahs are a blend of Egyptian and middle eastern condiments.
Spice up your food here.
If you want a curry to make your hair curl, head to Tully'z. A huge range to make you cook like an Indian. Owner Tully was Indian born, so curries were second nature to him. I'm not sure about the origin of his hair style.
Tully is a character.
Explains the hair - or does it?
In the centre dining area, we were entertained by singer songwriter Elisha with her gentle strumming and lovely vocals.
A joy to hear.
Also in the centre area was Bianca, a children's entertainer through her Wonder Spark parties. She kindly demonstrated her balloon twisting talent.
Bianca at work.
Looking decidedly delicious were the huge variety of pies, puddings and crumbles from Pudding Nana. I counted over 25 varieties including apple pie, blackberry & apple and spicy plum & apple. Nana, aka Alex, has been a very busy lad.
Is it Alex or Nana?
It's a farmers market but not many farm products were available, avocados and a stand of very fresh-lookin vegetables were two.
Get your avocados here.
Heathmont Farmers Market is on the 4th Sunday of the month at the Great Ryrie Primary School, in Great Ryrie Street, Heathmont.
