There's a special atmosphere about a Twilight Market. It is distinctly different to a morning market and venturing out in the evening while it's still light and not too cold is an evening outing with a difference. The added benefit of a twilight market is not only the shopping, but also being able to enjoy an outdoor, 'street-food' styled change for dinner. Where would you rather be?
With Christmas right around the corner our local artisans, craftspeople, makers and creators have been hard at work, like the elves in the North Pole, doing their bit to provide us with an alternative to the glossy, mass-produced wares found at the large shopping centres. Especially when it comes to the person who has everything, why not select a thoughtful and unique gift, and in doing so support small business working hard right in our very own backyard.
The Mornington Summer Twilight Craft Market is an evening showcase of the regular craft market held at the Mornington Racecourse right throughout the year. And the Mornington Craft Market is just one branch on the hugely popular Craft Markets Australia tree. Other markets organised by this group feature everywhere from Flemington, Hanging Rock, Lardner Park, Point Nepean, Red Hill. Yarra Glen and Wells Street and are always well attended.
Well known for their variety, large stall numbers and quality wares, you will find Craft Market Australia offerings are more than just a market. Gourmet foodies will be in their element here with plenty of eat fresh and take home food options available. Live music, buskers and entertainment help creating a festive atmosphere and the settings are just serene. The Mornington Craft Market has more than a little touch of country about it and attracts not just locals, but visitors to the Mornington Peninsula region in equal delight.
The Mornington Summer Twilight Craft Market is being held on Saturday 17th December 2016 from 4pm to 9pm at the Mornington Racecourse, Racecourse Road, Mornington. Onsite parking at this event is $4 and dogs are not allowed.
