Our region is not only renowned for its picturesque beaches but also for vibrant and diverse markets that add a unique flavour to the local culture

Local markets offer a delightful blend of artisanal products, fresh local produce and a lively community atmosphere.

One of the standout markets in the region is the Geelong Waterfront Makers and Growers Market. Set against the backdrop of the Geelong Waterfront, this market showcases an array of handmade goods and locally grown produce. Visitors can explore stalls brimming with unique crafts, jewellery, clothing and artwork created by talented local artisans. The aroma of freshly baked goods and the vibrant colours of fresh fruits and vegetables create an enticing atmosphere that captivates both locals and tourists alike.

For those with a penchant for fresh produce, the Torquay Cowrie Market is a must-visit. Held on the grassy lawns overlooking the ocean, this market offers a wide array of farm-fresh fruits, vegetables and gourmet delights. From organic honey to artisanal cheeses, the market celebrates the region’s rich agricultural bounty. It’s not just a shopping experience – it’s a celebration of local flavours and a connection to the land.

The Anglesea Riverbank Market is another gem, attracting visitors with its relaxed riverside setting. Here, one can browse through stalls offering handmade crafts, vintage treasures and locally-produced goods. The laid-back ambiance and scenic views make it a perfect weekend outing for families and friends. Live music and a variety of food stalls contribute to the festive atmosphere, making it a delightful experience for all.

The markets are more than just shopping destinations; they reflect the region’s vibrant community spirit and commitment to local craftsmanship. Whether you’re in search of handcrafted treasures, fresh produce or a taste of the local culture, these markets offer an enriching experience against the breathtaking backdrop of the Australian coastline.
