NEXT MARKET: 28 & 29 JUL Add to calendar

Thank you Canberra

We’re all patting ourselves on the back at Handmade HQ this week. As you know, we’re known for curating the market so that we can offer shoppers a broad range of amazing artisan designers and producers, all of whom make their products here in Australia. The selection of stalls at last weekend’s market was only part of the story though.

Despite the fact that we research all of the stallholders in advance, even we were surprised by the consistent quality of stalls and the selection of beautiful products on display. The cheerful and sunny nature of our designers and producers was also a key ingredient in the success of the weekend. It was infectious and left thousands of visitors happy to have shopped at EPIC. And the food. So much choice. Too much choice! If you indulged in the pasties, doughnuts, gozleme, brownies, burritos, stir fries and regional wines & spirits that we did, you’ll know quite how delicious the selection was. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that worked so hard to make the market so beautiful and so delicious.

Strolling around the halls, we couldn’t help but have big smiles and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did. Thank you for supporting the Handmade Market, to all of you from Canberra and the interstate visitors who made the trip, and thank you for sustaining small business in Australia. You’re awesome. See you on 10 & 11 June, when we’ll be doing it all over again!
