I have been a great admirer and good friend to the man, that everyone knows along the Mornington Peninsula.

Fred Johnson has been making amazing Jams, chutneys, spices for as longs as anyone can remember.

“My name is Fred Johnson and I am a qualified chef, traveller and I have run my preserves and delicacies business, Elfreds Of The Peninsula for over twenty years. I’ve been cooking in kitchens all over the world for over 40 years. I am also a qualified Chef and Cooking Trainer.

My love affair with food and markets started long ago as a child. I spent a lot of time going to the markets for mum. At the age of 10, I was sent to markets to go and buy vegetables, chillis, meats and fish. I remember playing in the little village night market, which was on most nights of the week.

My experience as a market and festival trader that I have passed on has helped many new and old traders on their way to a successful career, advising them on how to avoid the pitfalls and saving them time and money. With over thirty years’ experience at festivals and markets, I have seen the ups and downs and ins and outs of how they work. As a Trainer and Assessor, I am qualified to pass on my knowledge to all new beginners to the world of markets.”
