European Street Market in Vic
During the cooler weather and only once a month, the picturesque Ocean Beach Road Sorrento sidewalks are turned into an open street market. The European-style boutique market brings sunshine to a winter's day with original artisans, local produce, wine sampling and more.
Meander through the village shops and laneways and admire the standout limestone buildings listed on the heritage walk. Take your time, sample fine food, meet the makers and absorb the market experience. Collect a basket of goodies and consider a gourmet picnic on the green grass of Sorrento Park.
Dogs are welcome and well looked after. A stand-out stall for pet lovers is Coopers Covers - the knowledgeable team create canvas bed covers for dogs, you can easily fill the canvas case with your old bedding or pillows. Very resourceful idea for eco-minded pet owners.
After the market, take a stroll along Millionaires Walk and greedily inhale the fresh open sea air while sneaking a look at how the villagers live.
Art and book lovers can visit Antipodes Book Shop for drinks and nibbles after 2pm and view the latest exhibition from local ceramicists or browse the tranquil bookshop and stock up on your winter reading.
Sorrento, Vic is an ideal place for Melburnians to have a staycation during winter, make the most of off-peak rates and enjoy a weekend away with someone special.
Warm clothing, loose change and an oversized coffee are all you need.
