Start the Clock

Set your watches, mark your calendars, circle the date in your diaries and create an event in your phones.


That’s just under six weeks away, and we have finalised our curated list of amazing designers and producers, so you can be sure that you will be treated to the best in Australian design and produce when you come to EPIC in June.

Visit the DIRECTORY on our website to see who’s coming to Handmade. With 250 businesses to choose from, we invite you to browse and start making your shopping lists. Search for cosy Winter warmers for your home, beautiful knitwear for your wardrobe, skincare to keep you protected from the cold and indulgent jewellery and accessories to treat yourself or your loved ones. Children will have toys to look at, clothes to wear and beautiful art for their rooms and there are plenty of grooming products, fashion pieces and accessories for the guys.

Our gourmet food hall will be a feast of street food, with vans serving up snacks and delicacies inspired by Australian and international flavours, with local producers on hand to chat to you about their processes and products.

Adding to our already talented stallholders will be over 30 newcomers to Handmade, so we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be meeting some of them on the blog and finding out about their businesses and the products they’ll be bringing to the market.

Also an important note for your diary is the Vinnies Blanket Drive. Please have a look through your cupboards for warm blankets and clothes to bring to the Vinnies stall at the market and help them to help those in need this Winter. We’ll be giving you more details of how they run the blanket drive soon on the blog. We will also be hosting Anglicare as our door charity. Entry to the market is free, so please drop a gold coin into the bucket on your way in and help this worthy cause.

The countdown has begun. See you in June!
