Isn't that what they say? This could not be farther from the truth when it comes to the Frankston Sunday market, which has been running for well over 25 years. It is simply a Sunday institution for residents of the Mornington Peninsula, famous for its family environment and wide range of vibrant trash and treasure stalls. The market operates every Sunday in Young Street, Frankston drawing customers no matter what the weather. If it is bucketing down with rain or if it is stifling hot, there are always plenty of stalls with a large range of goods for sale.
There are over 100 stallholders selling mostly arts and crafts, new and old goods, household goods, brick-a-brack, new and pre loved clothing and food stuffs. One of my families favourite stalls is the 'Webber man' as we have affectionately named him, who sells near new Webber barbecues for only $50. Now that is what I call a bargain.
This market is also famous for an extensive range of plants and seedlings at extremely low prices. The food section is hard to pass by offering fish and chips, Dutch pancakes, healthy foods and cold and hot drinks. There is also an outdoor café area to sit and soak up the vibrant atmosphere or relax in-between bargain hunting. And who could go past a hot jam donut, especially on a cold winter morning.
Frankston Sunday market is open every Sunday from 8am to 1pm. Admission is $1.00 for adults with all proceeds going to the Frankston Dolphins Football Club. There is always loads of room for new stallholders so why not get involved and make and few extra pennies.
