Create a Macedon Ranges picnic hamper
There’s so many wonderful provedores and farmers markets to pick up delicious local treats for a perfect Macedon Ranges picnic.
Farmers markets are held in a different village each weekend, including Riddells Creek, Lancefield, Woodend, Kyneton, Macedon and Malmsbury.
Plan a picnic around these farmers market locations and dates.
Kyneton and Malmsbury
In Kyneton, check out the wonderful Watts Fresh on Mollison Street for the most amazing deli goods and fresh produce.
Further up the road is Fed Foodstore and Monsieur Pierre’s, known for their great coffee, deli goods, delectable sweet treats, pies and overall deliciousness.
Along Piper Street, drop by Home Grown on Piper for a wholesome takeaway salad or naughty brownie, or head to the other end of Piper Street for a foodies dream at Piper Street Food Co. Picnic Shop. Here you will find everything you need for the ultimate gourmet picnic, from homemade terrines to traditional pork pies.
Banks Fine Wine and Animus Distillery both stock fantastic local wine, or nip into Kyneton’s urban winery and cellar door, Musk Lane Wine, for a cheeky tasting and takeaway bottle.
For a more casual picnic with the family, treat yourself to scrumptious pies from Country Cob Bakery or Grist Artisan Bakers.
