Markets & Shopping

Shopping can soothe the mind, calm the soul

It can fill the picnic basket and the pantry. It can reveal that perfect gift, that painting you’ve been searching for, that sculpture for your garden. So why wouldn’t you roam around the many villages here?

Weekend and mid-week markets are great places to connect with local food producers, artists and crafts people. Farm shops and artisan retailers give you a real taste of the range of food and wine. Shopping centres are small and friendly, antique outlets overflowing with special finds. So really, there’s simply no excuse not to shop. Everything from antique stores to finding treasures in our markets across the Mornington Peninsula. Discover farm shops or visit more than 30 villages with superb art galleries, boutique shopping and tempting gourmet food stores.
