The Best Markets in Berwick & surrounds

Markets in Berwick and Surrounds

best market

One of the best things about living in Berwick is the accessibility of fabulous markets. Nearly every weekend I can easily pop up to a lovely, local, produce driven market to seek great inspiration for recipes and buy seasonal, super fresh food.


Plus,  donuts  and artisan pastries.



I have compiled a list of the local markets that I love. Please feel free to let me know if I have missed something good.

Here they are in no special order.

  1. Hi,

    I operate a Food Truck/Ice Cream Van called Too Sweet, currently in residence at the Frankston Market, but looking for additional opportunities to operate. I am not sure if you can help me, but it is worth a try.

    I am finding it awfully hard to get into some of the markets such as the Akoonah Park Market (they didn’t even been bothered to reply..) so I am very interested in seeing if you can help me.

    Do any of these Markets have any vacancies? – and if so what do you need from me?

    I am registered with Street Trader, and have all of the necessary insurances and qualifications (such as FSA and $10m insurance cover etc..)

    1. Hello Gary. I’m sorry I missed your comment as it was moved to spam and I don’t double check that file very often. I am not really sure of where you would look for market opportunities. Have your tried Belgrave and Cockatoo Market?
      Or Dandenong, South Melbourne or Prahran for a more permanent site?
      Good luck working it out!
