The market is supported by local community groups, including the Lions Club of Park Orchards and PORA. It is located in a lovely spot between the Yarra Valley and the Melbourne CBD. The Park Orchards Market is a nice community market selling great produce from the Yarra Valley and surrounds, as well as some urban wares and the like.
The market runs on every third Saturday of every month. Here you can enjoy music, children's activities and playgrounds, plus plenty of parking. The address is Park Orchards Primary School, 1-3 Bowmore Avenue, Park Orchard. This particular market will be on Saturday 20th July 2019 from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm.
Some of the goods being sold include the following:
Some proceeds will go to a good cause as the Lions Club donate each month to a selected charity! This market started out as a farmer's market and is now getting more involvement from community groups who want to raise funds or simply sell their goods.
If you live locally and have something you would like to make or if you are an entertainer and would like to perform at the market, please contact them. You can phone Kylie on 0437 123 660
Park Orchards Market is a lovely boutique market that has plenty of fresh air, places for the children to play and easy free parking. There will be a good variety of quality stalls to look through as above and some stallholders have EFTPOS facilities while others are cash only.
There are several playgrounds where the children can play. You could bring a blanket and have a picnic and stay a while. The event is also dog-friendly, though your dog or dogs must be on a lead at all times and under full supervision to make sure that everyone is safe.
A gold coin donation at the entry gate would be greatly appreciated to help out local people needing our help. You can check out their Facebook page here to see more.
