C&G’s Guide to Autumn Markets Bayside

Strolling past beautiful flower bouquets, fresh fruit and homemade jam donuts that you can’t say no to – come smell the roses at the best Autumn markets in Bayside. In today’s blog, C&G unpack where to find the best Bayside markets and which stalls you can indulge in craft wine, fresh bread and straight-out-of-the-oven fresh pies. 

Starting close to home, the Bayside Farmer’s Market takes place every third Saturday morning of the month at Sandringham’s Trey Bit Reserve. Filled to the brim with delectable goodies, the market boasts homemade pies, beer, wine and breads, as well as Victorian fruit, veggies and meat to make your own delicious delights. Run by the Regional Farmers Market, the Bayside Farmer’s Market adheres to the RFM’s positive philosophy- that healthy, organic produce and wares creates a healthy, happy community. 

Right around the corner is the Sandringham Village Craft Market, a fun crafty spot held in a local hall every first Saturday of the month. While offering fresh produce and baked goodies, this market also has handicrafts, clothes and kids toys on offer.

Enticing you into South Melbourne area, there are several markets to spend your weekend adventuring through. Don’t miss the Esplanade Market, gracing St. Kilda every Sunday since 1970. With 150 stalls featuring art, jewellery and clothes, there is bound to be something to catch your eye in the creative heart of this bohemian seaside suburb. Pair this with the Melbourne Farmer’s Market at Gasworks and your basket shall be filled with too much goodies to mention. 

For a little trash and treasure hunting, Frankston Sunday Market is a weekly Sunday market that fits the bill. With stalls adorned with fresh flowers, plants and its famous hot jam donuts – it’s criminal to leave the market without one! In the Mornington Peninsula, the Main Street market comes alive every Wednesday. This 34-year-old weekly tradition is packed with a variety of stalls, homemade crafts and baked goodies, fruits, vegetables and much more. A local favourite, the market runs from 9am – 3pm.
