Bentleigh Sunday market is a great way to spend a Sunday. Sitting just behind the Centre Rd shopping strip - and in a carpark directly adjoining Bentleigh Railway Station - the Market is an easy place to get too.

And, once you arrive you'll be glad you made a visit. This is true for a number of reasons. In the first, the Market represents a great outdoor meeting space the local suburbs and wider Melbourne. If your not spending your Sunday morning in church - or perhaps skipped bar hopping on Saturday night - here is a good chance to walk around with a coffee in hand and get your local community fix.

Yet, an equally big draw is of course what is on offer. With this, it is difficult to say definitively - for it is true vendors and their stock are likely to change each week - just what is on offer. By contrast, it can be said vintage clothes, plants, auto parts and quirky goods - think bobbleheads or wind-up toys - consistently feature.

With this, a gentle word concerning legitimate goods. The Rotary folks who run the market are warm and sincere - you'll find this when you drop in your $2 on way in - yet also perhaps unable to canvass every single item that could be sold Sunday. This to say, things like the odd fake DVD or CD have perhaps made it onto a sellers table here like they can at other markets.

All that's required to navigate this is to just exercise good judgement and don't buy if unsure the goods are the real deal. Beyond this, the Market otherwise promises to be a great Sunday outing, with so much to recommend a visit.

The Bentleigh Sunday Market. A great community hub with an array of good and quirky things to offer in the heart of Melbourne's South-East suburbs.

Further, with so many renowned eateries on Centre rd just a block or two away, there's much to recommend on making a visit to Bentleigh a regular Sunday event.

Vintage, quirky and plants - three words that attract me to a market!

You cannot buy a coffee there - only out on main street (centre Road eateries). No vegetables, meat, eggs, donuts, chips or snacks - I think it's to do with some deal with Coles (next door) and local retailers - but jars of jam, pickles, honey are on sale.

I remember back in the 80's lining up with the other stall holders on those cold mornings, setting up the trestle, then "people-watching" as the crowds passed by. It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning, the bonus being that we were selling excess household goods that were not required any longer.
