FUN, FOOD AND FINE CRAFTS – THURSDAY 21 DECEMBER
We are so excited to bring you our first ever Golden Plains Twilight Market, just before Christmas this year!
You can stock up on farm-fresh produce for your festive feasts, pick up boutique arts and crafts for your Christmas stockings and even enjoy a chilled craft beer from the Prickly Moses bar! We’ll have live tunes from local favourite, Imogen Brough, while you shop and kickback with your family, and food vans to help make your evening even more fabulous.
Taking place at the usual Market site on Thursday 21 December from 4.00 to 9:00pm, the Golden Plains Twilight Market is a one-stop shop for all your Christmas needs – fresh fruit and veg, flowers, cheese, preserves, sweet treats (and more) and gorgeous gifts direct from the farmers, makers, artists and gourmet provedores of our region.

Today A Hidden Secret is truly a family business, keeping Cherry, Christina, Tom, and Thomas and one other talented staff member, Christine, from the local town very busy on the savoury side, and Angela and Paul busy on the naughty but nice side of the business with decadent cakes and slices!
At JungleRain we grow all our own organic chilli to be processed into our hot chilli products. Each year at the beginning of winter we begin with the indoor germination of all our selected range of chillis. Towards the end of summer we begin the harvesting of the chilli pods for the production of our hot sauces and other chilli products. Most of the chillis are processed fresh at this time, with percentages being dried for our chilli powders. We have nine varieties of hot chilli sauce and one variety of hot wasabi mustard, an exquisite mix of flavors and aromas with a range of customers' heat tolerances. Our sauces are unique in that they are combined with a fruit base with spice that compliments both the flavour and the heat.
La Madre Bakery
We work hard to produce breads full of gracious goodness and take the time to look after the people in our business and the environment we work and live within.La Madre Italian for 'The Mother' represents the generations-old mother culture that we use to start our sourdough breads. Using nothing more adaptable than our bakers' hands, each loaf is created with loving attention. We uphold the traditional techniques of artisanal baking to ensure each loaf or sweet treat is of the highest quality.We scour the land for the finest ingredients using freshly milled flours, filtered water, pure sea salt and natural air borne yeast. Where possible, we use tasty local heroes like the Kalamata olives in our Olive Sourdough, sourced right here in Victoria from the wonderful Mount Zero. And, of course, it is a definite 'No' to nasty preservatives and additives.
Leighgrove Olives is a boutique olive grove, totally family owned and operated by the White family. The farm is located in the delightful township of Inverleigh, just 26km west of Geelong. Located on a picturesque stretch of the Barwon River, the 4500 tree olive grove is producing extra virgin olive oil of the finest quality. The cool climate conditions with a long, slow ripening period, together with the rich pastoral soils, results in oil of particularly deep, full-flavoured characteristics.
