Mt Martha is a small tight-knit community nestled between the seaside and bush. With beautiful beaches and bush it is home population of 18,000 and is a haven for locals and visitors alike. An Mt Martha Farmers' Market will be a regular event for community and visitors with stalls, local produce, live music, kids activities, workshops, and community promotions. A local farmers market will celebrate Mornington Peninsula and Victorian produce, seasonal food, and sustainable farming. It will be open and accessible to the community and visitors with plenty of parking on site and wheelchair access, with low impact.

Mt Martha Farmers' Market will be a regular local family-friendly event for the community to enjoy. It will be a place to gather, meet up with friends and family while sharing ideas. It's about accessing fresh produce while supporting and encouraging the local economy and creating a connection to food production. The market will attract visitors to MT Martha to enjoy local food and further explore the local area, businesses, and natural attractions. The market is designed to give people access to healthy eating and a connection to the people who grow, create and enjoy food in their local area.

Such a good project. The world needs more farmers' markets and better access for our food producers to receive more of the purchasing dollar. It'll also foster a better understanding of where our food comes from amongst the community. All the best!
