It's a suburban farmers market
This market is held on the 2nd Sunday of each month in front of the Whitehorse Civic Centre in Whitehorse Road, almost on the corner of Springvale Road.

Entry is by gold coin donation with a free off-street car park next to the centre. The market is very wheelchair and disabled-friendly. It is also very doggy friendly with many canines bringing their human friends.

Being a farmers' market everything from every stall was edible, with the exception of the plants and cut flowers.

Fresh fruit and vegetables were as fresh as they looked, with a large variety available from several stalls.

Looking fresh.

Three stalls offered Australian olive oil products, including Robinvale Estate.
