Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula is a cosmopolitan yet laidback amalgamation of European-style coastal villages and quintessentially Australian produce, with some cracking beaches to boot.
So how better to tap into the true essence of the area than to sample the best of the local food, wine, arts and crafts that are on offer at the many fantastic local markets?
Try the new Emu Plains Market, set among the stringybark gums of the Emu Plains Reserve in Balnarring. There’s something to keep everyone happy – from fresh produce to gourmet food; vintage pieces to handcrafted items.
The Mornington Racecourse Markets and Farmers’ Markets are local institutions showcasing local arts and crafts and produce respectively; while the Point Nepean Portsea Market is held right by the seaside.
