As a frequent shopper at the Mornington Racecourse Market, I find different things all the time. I love buying the kids hand made clothing. The stall holders frequently come up with new and interesting ideas. Everything is unique, you won't find things in shops and usually anything can be made to order.
On entry to the market we found a large food stall selling cakes, sponges, pies, scones and other delights. Greg, pictured, and his wife have been selling for an amazing 33 years and their products are extremely popular. My advice would be to buy early before they sell out.
Grab a coffee from Dave's place and enjoy it on the lawn with something to eat, whilst the children are well catered for with an animal farm, face painting and a drawing/painting stand with large poster size pictures.
Sunny Ridge strawberry farm grows strawberries in Red Hill where you can pick your own. They also sell strawberry wine, jam and seasonal berries.
