Discover Artistry at the Yarra Glen Racecourse Market
Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of creativity, craftsmanship, and local allure at the Yarra Glen Racecourse Market. Here, on the scenic Armstrong Rd in Yarra Glen, makers, creators, and artists converge against the backdrop of the picturesque Yarra Valley. This vibrant market, nestled within the inner sanctum of the racecourse, transforms into a haven for homemade treasures, locally sourced produce, and unique designs every time it opens its gates.
As you step into this country oasis, the market unfolds with grassy lawns, meandering roadways, and pavilions that seamlessly blend with the verdant racecourse surroundings. The ambiance is one of rustic elegance, where every vendor is a storyteller, and every creation is a work of passion.
During market hours, roadways transform into leisurely 'walkways,' freeing them from traffic access. The surfaces, varying from gravel to bitumen and grass, create a dynamic terrain that mirrors the undulating beauty of the Yarra Valley itself. While shade may be limited, the vibrancy of the market compensates with an array of unique offerings.
For those venturing into this charming space, a word of caution: ground conditions and weather can be unpredictable. Stroll through the market with care, especially if you're navigating with prams or wheelchairs. The safety and comfort of all attendees are paramount. ♀️♂️
