Fresh Produce Markets In South Gippsland

It’s always so nice to see the great turn up of people at the local farmers markets, for the arts and crafts and freshly grown organic produce in so many of the towns in South Gippsland. Places like Foster, Cowes, Coal Creek, Churchill Island, Grantville Inverloch, Jumbunna, Newhaven, Korumburra, Loch, Leongatha, Philip Island, Tarwin Lower, Mirboo North, Wonthaggi and Yarram all seem to have markets on a regular basis.

This particular photo of fresh vegetables, silver-beet, spring onions, sweet potato, beans celery, capsicum, lettuce, pumpkin, was taken at the Organic Produce Market in Koonwarra.

Here’s a complete list of Markets, Stalls, secondhand goods and Craft Fairs in South Gippsland



Cape Barren Geese

These large birds were found nesting an the side of the road going into Churchill Island Heritage Farm. A very interesting place to visit over the holidays.

Cape Barren Geese can be found along the southern coast of Australia and tend to inhabit the wind swept coastal farmland areas and islands off the coast especially the Victorian coastal islands around Wilsons Promontory.

They didn’t seem too bothered when we ventured closer to take photos.
