Markets in the hunter valley
Rubbing shoulders with locals as they rifle through boxes of locally grown produce and handmade knick-knacks is one of the pleasures of visiting a country market. And Wine Country has several monthly markets where you can meet stallholders and hear their stories, while stocking up on local cheese, olives, jams, freshly baked bread, handmade soaps, clothes and more.
