An unmossible day out
On Sunday 18 December Mossvale Market "A Day Out at Mossvale" will be held in Mossvale Park from 9.00am until 3.00pm. With over 150 stalls offering some of the most beautiful and unique goods to be found anywhere, it's a great opportunity for that last minute Chrismas shopping. There's also plenty of fresh produce and tempting food stalls to keep up your energy while you shop.

Mossvale Park is located in Berry's Creek, between Leongatha and Mirboo North in South Gippsland. It's an enchanting spot studded with ancient trees and bordered by the Tarwin River.

Unique, handmade and superbly designed are watchwords of the market and while there is a focus on local growers, producers, artisans, musicians and entertainers, the market also has fair trade wares from overseas as well as vintage and upcycled goods. See here for a preview of the myriad stallholders and range of food and drinks on offer. If you're quick you might be able to secure a spot at the Watercolour Workshops with Sweet Afton Creative Co.

The musical lineup is Matt Katsis, Maddie May, Black Pepper and Solwota. With Mossvale Park's acoustic soundshell, you'll feel like you're at a music festival with the shopping as an additional bonus.

Mossvale Park is big and beautifully landscaped. It has plenty of room (and shady trees) for you to set up a rug and select some treats from the food vendors for a picnic. Kick back, listen to the music and enjoy some local produce, coffee or possibly a drink from the pop-up bar. There'll be roving performers and activities for the kids so it really is a lovely day out as well as a market.

Note that this is a CASH ONLY market. ATM's can be found on the way in Mirboo North or Leongatha depending on which way you are travelling. There's plenty of paddock parking ($3) and dogs are permitted on a leash.

Getting There:

Mossvale Park is on Mossvale Park Road (off the Strzelecki Highway) in Berry's Creek.

By car, it's around 2 hours from Melbourne. Take the South Gippsland Highway to Leongatha and when you arrive in Leongatha at the T-intersection, take a left and you'll find Mossvale Park 14 kms out of Leongatha on the Strzelecki Highway.

Alternatively, take the Monash Hwy (M1) towards Trafalgar. At Trafalgar turn right and continue on the scenic route of C469 towards Thorpdale/Mirboo North. Drive towards the Strzelecki Hwy (B460) through Mirboo North and follow this to Berry's Creek. Mossvale Park is 10km out of Mirboo North.

Whichever route you take to the market, you'll get to enjoy some crisp country air and beautiful scenery both along the way and when you get there.
