Market lovers, gather close. We know how much you love a shop and browse and we have two incredible markets returning this summer season. Little Beauty will be charming market goers again this year with not only their regular Saturday morning markets, but a twilight and special Christmas market too.  With nearly 100 specially curated stallholders, this market will give you plenty of ooh and ahh moments at Beauty Park, Frankston.

For those who love to browse a market with a cocktail in hand and a waterfront sunset as their backdrop, the Sunset Twilight Markets are all for you.  Held monthly on a Friday night from October – January along the Frankston Waterfront, the vibe is relaxed, with plenty of stalls, food trucks and live music to really set the mood.  Friday nights at the waterfront just got a new vibe.
