emu plains market, balnarring

What could be better than a leisurely stroll around an outdoor market with over 250 stalls, food trucks, rides for the kids - and live music? Adding an incredibly idyllic backdrop, of course!

This location makes this market hands-down the most beautiful one that Mamma has ever visited.
Set in a lush forest deep within the Mornington Peninsula, with stringybark trees offering plenty of shade and beauty; this open plain is one of few that remain. It gets it name as it is said that Emus used to roam the area.

With over 250 stalls, you will find things like gelato, home-made pasta, locally made wines, baby clothes, plants, paintings, jewellery - and so much more!

There are plenty of food trucks to fill your appetite and rides and jumping castles to keep the kids busy. There is even a playground!

Add the next date to your calendar, as this is one you wont want to miss!

Mamma's special mention
There is so much do in the Peninsula! Make a day of it and head to the wonderful Sunny Ridge strawberry farm and pick your own strawberries!
