The Markets are a popular institution showcasing the work and wares of many talented local craftspeople and the produce of our market gardens and country kitchens.
There is nothing better than buying your food direct from the grower or purchasing craft items straight from the unique individual who was inspired to create it.
Spending a leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning wandering around these markets is the perfect way to wind down after a busy week.
Peninsula Produce To Market, to Market.....
Every weekend on the Peninsula, you can find food craft markets which support our local farmers artistic talent.
There s nothing better than buying your food direct from the grower or purchasing craft items straight from the unique individual who was inspired to create it.
Farmer s markets offer an amazing selection of fresh local produce and our two most popular are held each month on the second Saturday in Mornington and fourth Sunday in Mt Eliza.
These accredited markets showcase a range of produce from the Peninsula and regional Victoria and friendly stallholders are always happy to chat about their produce.
In Balnarring, the Emu Plains market returns in October on the third Saturday each month and promotes the region in a stunning rural setting.
Held at the historic Emu Plains Reserve, this fabulous market has gourmet food and craft items plus lots to keep the kids entertained.
So why not think about changing your shopping habits over the next few months Salad leaves that have been picked the previous day, eggs that have been laid that week and artisan breads baked fresh for the market are just some of the reasons to shop this way.
