We may be a little biased but we might just have some of the best markets in Melbourne here in the Eastern Dandenong Ranges. We are definitely spoilt for choice in the market department and you would be hard pressed not to find one each Saturday and Sunday here in the hills.
If you are looking for “markets near me” this weekend why not come out to the hills and check out one of these amazing markets.
