Why this list?
People used to spend hours looking for a market and then email in frustration asking "what happened to XXXX Market"?
Markets come and go! A recent search for some of the markets listed above would have you believe many of them are still operating. Web sites that are not updated regularly were the main culprit, but having said that... while market organisers bang your door down when they first start-up, they are the last ones to tell anyone when they close.
If you find markets listed that are no longer trading, please let us know!
* Warburton River Market
Warburton River Market is incorrectly listed on many web sites** as still operating with a contact number for a Heather who runs Williamstown Market.
** marketsandfairs.com.au, you.com.au, marketguide.com.au, melbournechat.org, mymarketday.com.au, sweetandsour.com.au, ruralandgeneral.com.au, coastshop.com.au
*** Highland Farmers' Market - we called in 2011 and was told this market had not operated at this estate for at least a number of years. Highland Farmers Market @ Dromana Estate, Tuerong. 555 Old Moorooduc Rd, Tuerong 4th Saturday of every month (Summer months).

**** A reader alerted us to Campbellfield Market being closed. Interestingly, we found a number of other web sites with identical info as ours (who mentioned plagiarism?).
In short, none of the markets below are operating as of September 2013. There are many web sites that are out of date saying they are still on but we have checked and they are not. If you have any doubts, call Sorrento Beachside Visitor Info Centre on (03) 5984 1478

Business | Cancelled
From time to time we receive requests as to why we don't check that each market is operating (cancelled) each week and publish a list.
Lets do the math... on any given weekend there are over 500 markets operating and live in our calendar. If one of our team were to start calling markets at 7am, and provided every call took under 2 minutes, we would finish checking at 11pm at night.
It seems to make more sense that markets leave a simple recorded message on their telephones with operating conditions and times.
