The Red Hill market is one of the more relaxed attractions on the Mornington Peninsula, with a wide range of craft and food stalls to choose from, you can easily lose yourself winding through the rows of stalls.
There are usually around 300 stall holders present with more displaying during the warmer months, and the market is run on the first Saturday of every month. Open from 8am to 1pm, strolling through the Red Hill market is the perfect way to spend the morning and maybe picking up something for breaky from one of the many food stalls.
We got down there on the first weekend of October this year and had a lovely time browsing through everything the market had to offer. We were treated to some wonderful spring weather and managed to pick up a few treats as we wandered through the stall.
There’s such a laid-back atmosphere at the Red Hill market, everyone is just happily browsing. It’s the perfect addition to any couples retreat. Arrive early to avoid the long lines at the vendors selling delicious pancakes and other breakfast treats.
On this trip to the Market we pickup up tasty local honey, a couple of pre-loved books that we couldn’t pass up, and some delicious fresh produce that has been grown locally by some local Mornington Peninsula farmers.
It’s a proven feast for the mind, body and soul, a fascinating eclectic mix of textures, materials and colours that make up the vast range of individually designed products. There is little doubt that on the first Saturday of the month (sept to May) between 8am and 1pm, the Red Hill Community Market is the place to be.
