Country markets at Sydney's Doorstep


There’s nothing like a vibrant market - browsing the stalls, finding treasures and treats that you can’t get from retail stores.

There’s no shortage of country style options for those that love a market right here in the Hawkesbury.

The Richmond Good Food Market is held 8am to 1pm every Saturday morning in Richmond Park. While the name suggests a focus on food, in addition to that, there’s usually a seasonal range market vendors selling everything from flowers to locally produced soaps, candles, crafts and artwork.

There are also coffee and food vendors there to tie you over.  Being so close to the children’s play area, it makes a great morning out for a family, or just meander along Richmond’s historic main street and enjoy the café’s and shops

quinceBilpin Hall also hosts a weekly Saturday  market between 10am and midday.

The Bilpin Community Market sells locally grown and made produce and products including, but not limited to bread, organic vegetables, in season fruit, preserves, honey, crafts and wool.

The market has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and a small cafe, making it great 'stop in' for breakfast, brunch or just a cup of tea or espresso coffee. There's room to sit inside or head outdoors next to the community garden and a children's play area outside.

While you are in Bilpin indulge yourself on the Apple Pie Trail, visit the orchards (pick your own available seasonally) or taste test the local ciders.

The Windsor Mall Sunday Market is one of the most well-known and longest run markets in the Sydney region.

The market runs every Sunday from 9am until 3pm, right in the heart of Windsor. There’s a huge variety of stalls selling everything from produce and plants to dogcoats, baby goods, jewelry and craft, the variety changes each week.  Windsor Mall and surrounds is also home to some fascinatingly unique stores - retail therapy at it's  best!

St Albans Village Market is  held monthly on the second  Sunday of the month from 10am (excluding January).

The market consists of many local artisans and producers and visiting stall holders are carefully hand picked for their commitment to quality for a fair price.

Surrounded by wilderness it certainly gives you a sense of history and the natural beauty of the region makes St Albans an idyllic destination.
