There are so many markets on this weekend we just had to share them with you! Whether you decide to take the kids and make it a family outing or sneak off on your own (because heaven knows a peaceful stroll around a market on your own can do us Mama’s a world of good sometimes) there are plenty of lovely markets on this weekend on the Mornington Peninsula. Here are some markets to get you started and there’s plenty more events at the Frankston Council and Mornington Peninsula Shire websites.
This little market has grown in popularity recently and is now hosting many of our favourite handmade stalls seen around the Mornington Peninsula. Located at the Seaford Scout Hall right outside the Seaford Station it runs every third Sunday (so this Sunday, April 17) of the month from 9am until 1pm. (Pic @tenaelily)
