Accredited by the Victorian Farmers’ Market Association, this market promotes the best farming practices and celebrates high quality, not to mention delicious, food and produce. Choose from handmade local burrata cheese, Yarra Valley farm fresh berries, Crackle Caramel Popcorn, Grandma’s Traditional Plum Puddings and a plethora of fresh fruit and veggies! If you enjoy scrumptious wholesome food, Mt Eliza Farmers’ Market is definitely the place for you.
Not only will it be a day to remember but once you’ve finished wandering around the market, you'll still have time for a peaceful drive through the spectacular hinterland region that surrounds the Red Hill Community Market.
Taste local produce, try on handmade jewellery or search through orignal artwork. With regular music performances on the street, there’s no shortage of things to do, taste and try at the Main Street Market. And all this only minutes from the beach!
Find something to complement your garden with stunning iron and bronze sculptures alongside colourful plants and flowers of the highest quality. From delicately wrapped gifts to local wine and home brewed beer, the Point Nepean Portsea Market is perfect for those who enjoy quality products and a unique day out.
