Event:
A Wednesday market with many unique stalls
Wednesday is the day that you will find Mornington town bustling and full of people and stallholders! Locals will be out enjoying their regular market day at the weekly Wednesday market.



These markets actually first started in 1979 and have stood the test of time. They are now Victoria's longest running weekly street market!

Even after so many years, these markets continue to draw locals and visitors to them. Perhaps it is the home baked, handmade and home-grown goodies on offer from over 60 stalls throughout the Main Street of Mornington?



They start from 9.00 am every Wednesday, rain, hail or shine. There is a nice variety of stalls ranging from fresh produce to handmade jewellery, fashion, craft, baked goods and home decor.



There are about 60 plus stall holders in all and entry into the market is FREE. There is also free parking behind the shops in this area.

The food stallholders as well as the local buskers both go down very well with the crowds. There is even live music, sausage in bread, gozleme and homemade dim sims!



Each market stall is independently owned and operated and offer an assorted mixture of delightful, unique goods.



There are also fine fashions, accessories for adults, handmade outfits for small children, handmade toys and naturally, lots of fresh country produce on offer. These range from fresh eggs, bread, vegetables, fruit, cakes and more. In fact, there is so much here, you could do all your weekly produce shopping here.



Because of this vast array of unique stalls, these markets are the perfect place to do your shopping - you could even start your Christmas shopping already, and not have to buy at the last moment!



No matter whether you are looking for an original present for a friend or relative, a child, or something special for yourself, the Main Street Market is the place to go and find it!

Even the Mayor of Mornington, Bev Colomb has said "the market is known far and wide, and shares Mornington's success as a friendly, vibrant place to be. Wednesday is 'market day'; it's a part of the town's culture."

And councillor, Anne Shaw states that "Mornington market brings such a diversity of local produce and crafts to our wonderful township, it is a true tradition."
