The Marketplace

Wander through the Truffle Kerfuffle Marketplace and browse, taste and sip a stunning range of Manjimup and Southern Forests & Valleys produce and wine (maybe even take something home if you can exercise restraint…). Peruse artisan stalls with a hot locally roasted coffee, enjoy wine, beer and spirit tastings, get up close to fresh truffles from Australian Truffle Traders, dig into truffle laden dishes and definitely check out the Campfire Kitchen. This is the best of the best of the region, all in one heavenly marketplace.

Open Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 5pm and is included in your Festival Village ticket.
