Overview

Local produce

Take a backcountry drive along the peninsula and fill up with delights fresh from fertile fields at welcoming farm gates, or taste the harvest cooked to perfection at esteemed eateries.

Treat your palate

The Mornington Peninsula's rich history of farming and fishing means an abundance of sea and farm-fresh produce. Find what's in season at roadside stalls and look for the MP Gourmet brand at providores like Merricks and Somers general stores, Red Hill Cool Stores, and the Tasting Station.

Visit renowned producers, including Main Ridge Dairy, Mock Orchards, Green Olive at Red Hill, 2 Macs Farm and Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm. Savour top quality berries and just-picked cherries, bio-dynamic apples and organic vegetables, free-range eggs, raw honey, aged meats, and olives. Complete your menu with Red Hill Bakery wine bread and hand-made cheeses at Red Hill Cheese, or tuck into the catch-of-the-day served with chips on the beach.

Farm-fresh foods cooked to perfection

Seek inspiration from local chefs who present this bounty with flair and seasonal sensitivity. Get reservations at La Petanque, Montalto, Port Phillip Estate, Ten Minutes by Tractor and The Long Table.

Bustling markets

Source the best of the peninsula's country kitchens at the famous Red Hill Market, the Montalto famers market and the Balnarring, Sorrento and Mornington markets.
