A privately owned authentic market specialising in fresh produce, locally made goodies, and art and craft. With a cosy indoor/outdoor setting, the Aireys Inlet Market is perfect in all weather and has become a Sunday morning mecca for Aireys locals seeking out a more sustainable shopping experience. A village market in a true sense of the word, this is the opportunity to fill your cloth bag or trolley with tasty seasonal organic produce, local wines, essential oils, aromatic herbs, and native plants. Meet the maker, the baker, the grower and taste the difference at Aireys Inlet Community Hall.
Aireys Inlet Market is seeking new stallholders for the market which is changing its general feel to a home grown, handmade, recycled and vintage. We already have a lovely group of marketeers, but we do need more. If interested, please email Susan Romyn and John Wilcox at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Facebook page.
