Good Life Summer Markets in Huonville

Shared by

If you are planning a trip to Tasmania soon, you should consider heading along to the Good Life Summer Market in Huonville.

Jam packed full of delicious goodies to try, the seasonal market showcases the best the region has to offer in arts, crafts and fine food.

The Huonville area is known for its 'make it, bake it, grow it' philosophy that can be seen at the market where local artists and producers show off their wares to the public – both tourists and locals alike.

Handmade, local goods are a special focus, so you might come home with a beautiful souvenir of your trip to Tassie.

The market is held every third Sunday of between October and March from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., so you can make a day of it, or pick up the ingredients for a picnic and explore the spectacular scenery the region has to offer.

There are plenty of spots by the Huon river where you can sit in tranquility to enjoy the fruit of the locals' labour.

And speaking of fruit, since the Huon area is known for its apples, make sure you include a deliciously tart braeburn, a juicy golden delicious or a sweet Jonagold in your picnic basket.

Depending on the time of year, you might also be able to tempt your tastebuds with some stone fruit. The Huon Valley produces beautiful apricots, cherries and plums.

Wine is another item to pop in your picnic basket, with Australia's southernmost wineries produced in this very region.

Cool climate wines are a staple product of the area, so pack some wine glasses and a pinot noir, aromatic riesling or crisp chardonnay from one of five local vineyards.
