The Emu Plains Market: a must see for market lovers in the heart of Balnarring!
One of the region’s coolest and most popular outdoor attractions, the Emu Plains Market is a monthly celebration of the Peninsula’s unique culture, creative artisans and diverse producers.
Beneath the sun dappled gumtree canopy, local traders transform the bush setting of the Emu Plains Reserve into a snaking trail of colourful market stalls welcoming people with an offer of unique crafts, amazing food and fresh produce.
“People love to find special hand crafted items or just simply graze their way through this vibrant seaside setting” says market organiser, Vanessa Johnson. “The stallholders offer an abundance of variety from hand made goods and designer pieces to farm-fresh produce; you’ll find everything you could ever dream of at the EPM!’ she says.
A family friendly event the market also has plenty for kids to explore! Face painting and fun with Faery Emma, jumping castles and native animal education are just a few exciting things you will find on market day.
There is also monthly craft workshops with talented stallholders and free entertainment from resident musicians The Whisky Gypsies & Matt Katsis.
The Emu Plains Market also proudly supports the community by offering free space & support to local not-for-profit groups and donates car parking money to help support Western Port Rotary and the Emu Plains Reserve. In the future, they hope to start up an emerging artist fund to support local emerging artists.
Whatever you love you’ll enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of the Peninsula’s most loved outdoor market. The Emu Plains Market is on the third Saturday of every month from October to April (check website for up to date times and special twilight markets)
